‘Pawn Stars’ gets new theme song from Lynyrd Skynyrd

It’s not quite “Free Bird,” but History’s “Pawn Stars” is getting a new theme song courtesy of Lynyrd Skynyrd.

When new episodes resume May 30, the reality series about a downtown Las Vegas pawnshop will start off with a 30-second theme by the Southern rock band known for 1970s classics such as “Call Me the Breeze” and “Sweet Home Alabama.”

Previously, “Pawn Stars” used a guitar-driven instrumental rock track. But this song, titled “Winning Isn’t Everything,” has lyrics.


“I was born under a bad sign/wrong place, right time,” the singer croons. “I’m here for a good time/got the devil inside.” Sounds like the perfect tune for one of Chumlee’s misadventures.

You can listen to the new theme below.
