With three seasons officially in the books, Rick and Morty has gone mainstream and is quickly becoming one of the most popular and highly rated animated shows of all time, but the incredible music is often overlooked.
Showrunner Dan Harmon’s dedication to perfection in each episode has led to the show earning a 9.4/10 rating on IMDb. Every choice, from the dialogue to the music is carefully chosen, which leads to some really powerful scenes – something you don’t often see in an animated show. They even go as far as making some songs solely for the show.
Here are some of the best songs from the first three seasons of Rick and Morty:
“Do You Feel It?” by Chaos Chaos | Episode: “Auto Erotic Assimilation“
This one’s pretty dark, broh. Maybe that explains why the attempted suicide scene has over five million views on YouTube, or maybe it’s because the song is awesome.
“Goodbye Moonmen” by Jermaine Clement | Episode: “Mortynight Run“
This one feels a lot like David Bowie, broh. We were surprised this wasn’t a real song.
“Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails | Episode: “The Wedding Squanchers“
This one’s sad, broh. The end of the finale from season two was quite a cliff hanger, and the accompanying song made for a really dramatic ending.
“For the Damaged Coda” by Blonde Redhead | Episode: “Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind“
“X Gon Give It To Ya” by DMX | Episode: “Something Ricked This Way Comes“
This one gets Rick and Summer super hyped, broh. A classic DMX song, perfectly synced with a workout scene and fight.
The series has a ton of other great songs, a lot of them composed by Ryan Elder and written by the show’s writers. If you’re looking for a specific song from an episode, we recommend using TuneFind – a very useful tool for discovering TV and movie music.
