For better or worse, the Winchester brothers’ journey is always accompanied by great results.
If you’re a fan of the long-running Supernatural series and the adventures of two charismatic brothers who fight each other and pursue the family business, then you know that the show is never shy when it comes to choosing the coolest old classic soundtrack.
Here are the top 6 Supernatural songs that became our all-time favorites thanks to the Winchesters.
6. Heat of the Moment by Asia
In the Mystery Spot episode of Supernatural’s third season, Sam experiences a time loop where he relives the same day again, beginning each tormented groundhog day with the heat of the Asian Moment playing on his alarm clock.
With Dean’s song “Rise and Shine, Sammy!” At the beginning of each episode, this humorous and recurring scenario, accompanied by the classic ’80s tune, has become a popular joke among fans of the show.
5. Oh, Death by Jane Titus
One of the scariest moments in the entire show is the introduction of Death on Supernatural. With Death getting out of a vintage car, walking through a windy town, rudely bumping into a man, causing his death, and the entire scene accompanied by Gene Titus’ mesmerizing voice – this exact moment with this exact song gives us chills to the bone.
4. Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple
After a year of trying to live a normal life with Lisa and Ben, Dean returns in Season 6 to the hunting world when Castiel brings back Sam without his soul. Accompanied by Deep Purple smoke on the water, Dean is finally reunited with his beloved baby Impala, which he had hidden away during his time with Lisa, signifying Dean’s return to the life of a fisherman.
3. Highway to Hell via AC/DC
The Australian rock band’s 1979 hit has captured the hearts of fans since the first episode of the show when we saw Dean riding with his baby on his way to save Sam from the Woman in White.
With lively, rebellious lyrics that capture Dean’s demon-hunting character as he battles evil supernatural creatures, the song symbolically represents the brothers’ journey on their never-ending highway to Hell.
2. Americana by Jay Gruska and Christopher Lennertz
As part of the series’ original soundtrack and often played during the show’s most poignant moments, Americana typically accompanies the show’s saddest scenes and adds emotional depth to the narrative.
The song remains particularly notable to most die-hard fans for being the final piece of selection to be played in the show’s finale when Sam and Dean finally meet in heaven.
1. Continuing on the path of the prodigal son from Kansas
This classic song from the ’70s has become an unofficial anthem for fans, cast, and crew of the show. Featured in the brief montage at the end of each Supernatural season, the song beautifully encapsulated the show’s bold themes and narrative and holds a special place as one of the series’ most emotionally resonant songs.
A special shout out to the show’s 200th episode and a lovely tribute to the angelic cover song and key moment of The Road So Far.
