      Hello, Do a Google search for “Welcome to the Jungle” by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

  2. toki says:

    I think the singer is Jasmin Tabatabai but im not sure. Sounds like her

  3. Gonzo1347 says:

    Sounds a lot like the Sneaker Pimps and Kelli Ali (Kelli Dayton). Why is this song not listed anywhere?

    • The Title Song sounds very familiar. It reminds me of a couple of songs from Queen of the Damned. Iwanna know if anyone can tell me the name of the Band, Singer and song, please

      • Ron says:

        You’re thinking (I believe) about the song during the closing credits of Queen of the Damned. That song is by The Kidney Thieves. This opening credits song for Animal Kingdom sounds a LOT like them too! Just don’t know for sure. If anyone has been able to find this song, please let me know! Thanks, all!

    I love the show, and I know good music. But the opening theme to Animal Kinkdom is a horrible foul song and should be replaced with something worthy of the show, writing, acting, and originality, and sound like cats having sex. JMO.

    • Bali says:

    The theme song to Animal Kingdom is called Big Black Hole by wildcard written by Ridley Bent you can find it on Apple tunes.

    It is NOT “Wildcard” by Ridley Bent. That’s a country song.
