Yay for good music on TV!

Good music is essential to a great viewing experience. Below are five TV shows, both old and new, that really know their way around the music scene.

  1. The Vampire Diaries

The Vampire Diaries Favorites by J0YC3

In the beginning, it felt like all our favorite music moments from the show involved angsty Stefan Salvatore (see:"Never Say Never," "Down"), and then Damon started raking in his own homeruns (see: "Feel So Close," "Give Me Love," and many more). Sigh. Like these brothers needed help making us fall for them!

  1. Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl (1-6) Soundtrack by Ashley Simoneaux

We can't listen to Sum41's "With Me" without remembering the beginning of Chuck and Blair in that limo, or Death Cab for Cutie's "The Ice Is Getting Thinner" without picturing Serena and Dan breaking up and clinging to each other on the dance floor. Our hearts, you guys!

  1. The O.C.

The O.C. was a godsend to those seeking good indie music at a time when Spotify, SoundCloud, and co. weren't around yet. From its opening credits that capture sun-soaked teenage angst like no other (Californiaaa, here we cooooome) to all the Death Cab for Cutie tunes in the Seth Cohen Starter Pack, we love everything about The O.C. mix.

  1. Teen Wolf

Teen Wolf (Seasons 1-5) – Updated Weekly by Emma Kate

Teen Wolf sees Twilight's carefully curated mix and raises their own cool collection of tunes perfect for both supernatural nocturnal adventures and everyday daytime fun. Their advantage? Viewers can instantly name the tune, thanks to MTV’s helpful and discreet identification of songs that are playing at any given moment.

  1. Grey's Anatomy

Grey's Anatomy – Complete Soundtrack by Lisa Santucci Schvach

This hospital drama is very good at taking sad music and putting it with devastating moments to make you sob like a baby (see: "Chasing Cars," "Somewhere Only We Know," and many more). In fact, it's like they have a special radar for detecting this particular brand of sadness—remember "Poison & Wine" and how Civil Wars immediately blew up after Grey's played their song in full?
