*Warning* the following article contains mild spoilers, and so many series related puns that we literally could not handle any more. Enjoy.
Season 9 of the hit TV show starring Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, Supernatural, kicked off last Tuesday with a huge bang. If your Twitter feed wasn't ablaze with notable quotes, and swoon fan-girls melting over Castiel's (Misha Collins) surprisingly impressive figure, then you probably weren't online, or don't follow people cool enough to live tweet the experience.
Whether you've been a long time fan of the series since its conception and followed it all the way down the long road so far, or you're just catching up with everything that's going on (either by actually tracking down the episodes, or reading the seasonal synopses on Wikipedia), you've seen how the music present in the show not only sets the tone, but in all honesty, reflects the overall vibe of each episode.
No doubt, shows and movies without theme music suffer the consequences. Nobody wants to sit through an hour of nothing but forced dialogue and quiet actions (unless you're at a Broadway production or Woody Allen film).
(I mean that's what books are for, right? And even then, we're imagining the theme music in our heads. I'm just saying...)
Thankfully, Supernatural suffers no shortage of awesome throughout its many years of existence. So in the spirit of enjoying another great season, and keeping our fingers crossed that the "assbutts" at the network don't cancel us, we're counting down 5 of our favorite musical moments.

Honorable mentions that did not appear on our list:
"Dream A Little Dream Of Me" music by Fabian Andre and Wilbur Schwandt and lyrics by Gus Kahn
Arguably one of the most noteworthy moments in the entire series. This one goes down in history as a split second that took us all by the heartstrings and pulled until we felt all the things. Illustrating that what Dean really wants deep down is a normal life with a family, but that he's too bold of a man to admit it reminds us all that the characters are still human, and perhaps, brought us a little closer to the series as a result.
And this little diddy...it speaks for itself.
