7. Freaks and Geeks

Freaks and Geeks
Freaks and Geeks' soundtrack should be iconic by now, considering that the show used almost one hundred famous 70s and 80s songs in its one season run. Featuring songs by Van Halen, Styx, Billy Joel, the Jackson 5, and so many more, the soundtrack recreates the feel of the era from the angle of the students in high school -- angsty, rebellious, and ready to rock and roll.

8. Supergirl

Supergirl
Supergirl's soundtrack is very pop-infused, catering to younger viewers audience with The CW. However, this doesn't mean it doesn't work -- in fact, the soundtrack typically complements the scenes particularly well. In addition, the soundtrack also sets a more lighthearted tone for the show. Some favorites include Paloma Faith's "Ready for the Good Life" and Kaleo's "Way Down We Go."

9. Orphan Black

Orphan Black
The Orphan Black soundtrack draws from an extremely wide variety of artists and genres -- from hip-hop to electronic and from pop to alternative, Orphan Black has it all. Because of the variability in the content in the clones' personalities and environments and the unpredictable nature of the show, the music helps to facilitate these changes in tone for the viewer.

10. Jessica Jones

Jessica Jones
Jessica Jones's score by Sean Callery is amazing, and it's only complemented by the hard rock and occasionally heavy metal soundtrack that accompanies it. With songs from Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and more, the music perfectly matches Jessica's gritty, explosive nature.

11. Sense8

Sense8
Sense8's ethereal score is often accompanied by a variety of songs from global cultures and communities, facilitating the showcasing of a diversity of individuals and stories onscreen. The show also includes a lot of throwback hits that tie all the characters together, including "What's Up?" by 4 Non Blondes.

12. UnREAL

UnREAL
The soundtrack to UnREAL features artists alt-J and Unions, especially during pivotal moments and ending scenes that leave the viewer with a haunted feeling. However, other songs on the show also infuse the series with lighter vibes, especially during party scenes -- or they infuse the series with even more somber tones, such as Rachel's or Quinn's quiet moments alone.
