Action Theme | Retro Cops, bank jobs, and gumshoe detectives


Music from early Cops and Crime TV shows is primarily a retro blend of R&B. This is music straight outta the sixties and seventies, perfect to set the mood of campy TV crime reruns. This music works well for productions in the style of Starsky & Hutch, Dragnet, Ocean's 11, casino and bank heists, and similar kitschy gumshoe detective fare.
