Alice Cooper "He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask)" (1986)

Honestly, this easily could've been a crossover hit.  8)

Interestingly enough the theme of "The Jetsons" was released as a single in the mid 1980's, which was featured in a compilation album featuring theme songs titled "TeeVee Toons Television's Greatest Hits." A music video was made, which featured clips of the show (including the revival that lasted from 1985 to 1987)

The single, which featured an extended version from the original composrt Hoyt Curtain and a remix featuring sound bytes from themes from various tv shows from the 1950's and '60's titled "Jane Get Me Off This Crazy Thing". It entered the dance/club charts in 1986.



Though wasn't a big  hit, it did appeared on Los Angeles college rock station
KROQ's year end countdown several years earlier (1981) at the very bottom for some reason. (the programmer might've been a fan of the show)

The popular song "Eep Opp Ork Ah-Ah" have been covered by The Dickies and Violent Femmes.

On a given day, the 1962 tune might play between Twisted Sister and Genesis on any one of several rock 'n' roll radio stations in Los Angeles. George and the family have an animated video on MTV. And "The Jetsons" theme, re-recorded in stereo, recently reached No. 9 on Billboard magazine's retail sales charts.

The song's popularity comes at a time when there is a mania among youth for the fashion and music of the '60s. Tony clothing stores are filled with the bright colors and styles of the era. Bands like the Monkees and Herman's Hermits have reunited and are touring the country. One trendy Valley salon offers a Jane Jetson haircut.
