    Sorry, I won't vote, because I hate this song so much.

    The Wire is awesome though

    Season 4, followed by season 1. I don't really like the other ones. My least favourite is the one from season 2 and I found out that's actually the original version of the song

    Season 1. It just has that classic feel and it was the best season imo.

    1 hands down.

    Whenever I think of The Wire's theme it's Season one.

    Halfway through the 2nd season atm, yes i know why the feck haven't i watched it until now.

    So many good characters McNulty, Omar, Stringer, Bubbles and Lester standout. Atm and taking away other genres
    (aka sci-fi just for my bias towards The X-files) The Shield just edges it for me but like i said only in the 2nd season.

    You're a machine. It's so hard not to bring up spoilers.

    Not really a fan of the song, but season 1 if I had to choose one.

    I much prefer that sleazy, sexy tune that usually plays in the end credits after each episode.
