In case you haven’t noticed the date yet today, it’s 9/02/10! Awesome, right? And it only happens, like, once in a lifetime! Unless, of course, you’re a tree, but then chances are you wouldn’t be reading this site right now.
Anywho, from the ridiculous (but totally plausible?) storylines to all that floral and denim fashion, ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ has become a beloved cultural icon and we’re paying tribute to its lasting effect on our otherwise mediocre lives. So, what’s the number one thing we love about the show? That theme song! And Donna’s ever changing hairstyles. And Dylan. Oh, Dylan. But for now, let’s just stick with that epic intro — check out a roundup of YouTube covers after the jump.
Let’s start things off with a smooth aperitif. This piano number really cleanses the palate and stirs the soul.
Next up, some really great guitar covers, including a one-of-a-kind performance by twins Brendan and Jackson, which just goes to show how people really “come together” over this song.
Now, let’s travel to an outdoor music festival in the Czech Republic for a rocking rendition by the band Morokweng. The song soon morphs into something else, but hey, it was great while it lasted.
We noticed a startling trend on our search: mashing up the iconic ‘90210’ theme with those of other classic shows. Below, ‘Degrassi’ and ‘Gossip Girl.’
Last up, an homage by a high school jazz band. Tax dollars have never gone to a more deserving cause.
