Wiki

The show usually opens with the theme song, "In the Street", by Alex Chilton and Chris Bell of the band Big Star. It was initially sung by Todd Griffin, but beginning with the second season, the song was performed by the band Cheap Trick, whose version is referred to as "That '70s Song (In the Street)". Cheap Trick ends the song in a very '70s, "Cheap Trick" fashion that is reminiscent of their hit song "Surrender" (1978). "Surrender" ends with the band repeating "We're all all right", same as the theme song. In a Rolling Stone magazine article in 2000, Chilton thought it was ironic that he is paid $70 in royalties each time the show is aired.[6]

According to theThat '70s Show website, during the first season, at the end of the opening song, Danny Masterson (Steven Hyde) yells "Hello Wisconsin!". From the second season onward, Robin Zander (lead singer for Cheap Trick) took over this job.[citation needed] Alternate holiday versions of the theme song were arranged for Halloween, Christmas and musical specials, using organ music and bells, respectively.
