Ironside was a TV series about a retired San Francisco police detective who had been shot by a sniper and was paralyzed from the waist down. The NBC crime drama starred Raymond Burr and aired from 1967 to 1975. In 1971, for the show's fifth season, composer and producer Quincy Jones was commissioned to create a new theme song for the show. Jones also scored the entire sound track for the 2-hour season opener and the first eight episodes of the season. The iconic theme song marked the first time that a synthesizer-based theme song was used for a television show. A full 4-minute version of the song appeared on the Quincy Jones 1971 album Smackwater Jack. The Ironside theme song has been sampled well over a hundred times in songs across many genres of music from hip-hop to reggae to electronic. The notorious siren sample from Ironside was also prominently used in Quentin Tarentino's American martial arts film Kill Bill, in both volume 1 and 2, from 1993 and 1994.
