Teardrop is used as the opening theme music for each episode of the popular medical drama "House" in North America. The producer of the show, Bryan Singer, explicitly wanted Teardrop to be used as the theme tune.
However due to licensing issues, outside of the North American market, the Teardrop theme music is replaced by a generic piece of music composed by the show's in-house composers. This is the music which is usually heard in all broadcast versions in all regions outside of North America. This other generic piece of theme music was composed to sound very similar to Teardrop without actually being it as the producers could'nt get the rights to the song outside of North America, which has led to some confusion and arguments between fans of the show in North America and internationally.
To further complicate the matter, the DVD releases of House outside of North America have begun, from the second season of the show onwards to include the Teardrop theme music intact in the opening, as it was always meant to be.
