      • I’m looking too…iTunes, Amazon,Rhapsody, etc. No luck yet.

      • SoulSnatcher says:

        The song is called, “Welcome To The Jungle”. Lyrics by Atticus Ross. Score by Trent Reznor. Both are members of the band ‘Nine Inch Nails’, and are the same duo that won the Academy Award for Best Original Score for ‘The Social Network’ in 2010 and a Grammy Award for their soundtrack to ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ in 2013. They also did the theme songs and soundtracks for ‘Gone Girl’, ‘Patriots Day’, John Carpenter’s ‘Halloween’. Additionally, Atticus Ross wrote and composed the theme songs for ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ and for ‘Outcast’ by himself.

      • SoulSnatcher says:

        Incorrect. Atticus Ross did the theme song with Trent Reznor and they have a band called ‘Nine Inch Nails’. He is, however, married to and has three children with Claudia Same.

  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!

        • Deb says:

          The song title is “Welcome to the Jungle” By Atticus Ross & Trent Reznor. They both are in the Band “Nine Inch Nails”. Oscar winners too!!

  4. Gman says:

    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:

      I agree man. It’s absolutely horrendous !
      Can’t believe people are wasting time trying to track it down .
      Hahahahaha ridiculous

      • Fall says:

  8. Donna says:

    I have researched this song and was co written by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross but I also cannot locate it.

  9. Bonnie says:

    This song is called big black hole.

  10. Bonnie Collins 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.

  11. Mitzi says:

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

  12. Mitzi says:

    I meant to say it’s not “Big Black Hole” by Wildcard.

  13. Pisces says:

    I heard that Pisces – Children Kiss Your Mother Goodnight is in “Animal Kingdom” commercial is that true what year I don’t know.


  14. i must be deaf says:

    the song is horrible and she sounds horrible. the show is great but i hate having to listen to the intro.

  15. Janet says:

    I believe it’s Trent Reznor from 9 inch nails and his wife is the singer.

  16. JonyB says:

    The theme song for the TV show “Animal Kingdom” is Atticus Ross & Trent Reznik’s “Welcome to the Jungle”.

  17. JonyB says:

    Oops! I meant Reznor ;o)

  18. frammus says:

    What are the lyrics to Atticus Ross & Trent Reznik’s “Welcome to the Jungle”

  19. Rod Munch says:

    The worst fucking song ever. I can’t believe you fucktards would like it. As a musician I find it insulting and when I see people who are wondering about it I know that the human race is fucking doomed as a species. Shame on you assholes. If you think there’s any musical integrity to this song you should just keep it to yourself. My dad used to say “It’s better to be quiet and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.” Now thanks to your retarded comments the whole world knows u r all dipshits.

    • Beck says:

      You should really take the old man’s advice, Rod.

    • Pamamania says:

      calm down. No need to be a bully over a TV theme song ♡

      • Pamamania says:

        my comment was for Rod, I might have put it in the wrong place…since I’m such a fucktard etc. lol

  20. Ronald Ford says:

    It’s called welcome to the jungle by attics and reznor,but I can’t find the damned lyrics it has to be a gimmick

  21. Pamamania says:

    sorry/not sorry Rod, but I think this song is bad ass
    because it fits perfectly (IMO) for the show. Seriously, music is about freedom of choice. Where would we be if we followed like sheep & only listened to the music someone on the interweb verbally browbeat us to like. Do you… but don’t put everyone else down for our free will to like something different than you. Peace out.

  22. Pam J says:

    This is an Aussie band – this song would be amazing for Animal Kingdom

  23. MLO says:

    This song is straight up bad ass. Would love to know who the female singer is. This is the definition of pure sexiness. Can’t think of a song that even comes close to this one as far as fitting the show. The people searching for the song to this series probably heard this song once and said, “yup this is it, no need to listen to any others”.

  24. Doodle says:

    The name of the female singer is Christine Lunde who also goes by the alias Thorn

  25. Axl D says:

    Love the show. The theme song is hideous. I cannot fast forward quick enough.

  26. Tracy MUCKLE says:

    Can’t find the song for the episode on August 14 before the show End it very eclectic song can’t find it anywhere?

  27. Denise Van Berkum says:

    Found the song on iTunes. Search Animal Kingdon (original television score) sung by Claudia Sarne & Alexis Marsh. A buck 29…
