Knight Rider Theme Song

June 8, 2010


This is for the original 1980s Knight Rider Theme Song (not the 2008 remake).

The television series had a very strong and unique theme song. It was composed by legendary composer, Stu Phillips, who also composed the theme for the original Battlestar Galactica. The song is simply referred to as “Theme from Knight Rider” or “Knight Rider main theme.”

It can be found on the original television soundtrack album, The Stu Phillips Scores: Knight Rider.

What the narrator is saying…

Knight Rider Theme Song Narration

Knight Rider. A shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist. Michael Knight, a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, the powerless, in a world of criminals who operate above the law.

Michael Knight, a lone crusader in a dangerous world, the world… of the Knight Rider.

KITT was voiced by American actor William Daniels, I am not sure if he narrated the intro as well.

Watch & listen



Self-made billionaire Wilton Knight rescues police Detective Lieutenant Michael Arthur Long after a near fatal shot to the face, giving him a new identity (by plastic surgery) and a new name: Michael Knight. Wilton selects Michael to be the primary field agent in the pilot program of his public justice organization, the Foundation for Law and Government (FLAG). The other half of this pilot program is the Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT), a heavily modified, technologically advanced Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with numerous features, including an extremely durable shell and frame, controlled by a computer with artificial intelligence. Michael and KITT are brought in during situations where “direct action might provide the only feasible solution”.
