Friday Night Lights Music

Updated on December 2, 2008

A Town, A Team, and a Dream

NBC's Friday Night Lights is arguably the best drama on network television today. Based on the feature film starring Billy Bob Thornton, the show follows the sometimes dysfunctional relationship between a small Texas town and its beloved high school football team, the Dillon Panthers, as the Panthers aim for State.

Season One Credits

Though often mistakenly credited as "Remember Me as a Time of Day" by Explosions in the Sky, the Friday Night Lights theme song was actually composed for the show by W.G. Snuffy Walden, who has also composed themes for such shows as "The West Wing" and "My So-Called Life."
