15 Music Tracks for YouTube Intros and Outros

Are you on the hunt for compelling intro music for your YouTube series? It can be hard to find that one perfect song, especially after all the work you’ve put into cultivating your channel, which is why we’ve some of our favorite royalty-free music tracks from the highest-rated files in our library.

Well-suited theme music is essential for branding your YouTube series and for setting the tone. A fitting intro serves as the perfect hook for your viewers while also creating the right mood. Using the same music—or very similar music—for your outro can also round out your show and give your viewers closure until your next episode.

To pick the right music first, ask yourself what your objectives are. Are you covering dramatic news and current events or delivering industry hacks and pro-tips for a tutorial series? The track you choose will depend on this question.

No matter what mood you’re going for, there’s one guideline for choosing intro music that you should always have in mind: Keep it uptempo. Intro music primes your viewers for your show, which means that your music should keep their attention and get them excited for what they’re about to see next. Downbeat—or downtempo—music, while often emotionally resonant or soothing, will do the opposite of exciting your audience.

Without further ado, here are the top 15 music tracks in our library for YouTube intros and outros.
