Or is it just that he hates the theme tune?!!

No, he hates that he's not getting paid for the use of the song title.

Maybe, just maybe... there's nothing to read into and he actually means what he's saying.

Nice reference to Stone Cold Crazy at the end.

He's entitled to be annoyed and I understand the desire to officially distance himself because he's right: a good number of people probably will assume they've got something to do with it. Now if it was called "Stairway to Heaven" instead, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant would not have the same problem. Know what I'm sayin'? ;)

Does a programme have to get permission to use a particular song as its theme?

LOL - outstanding.

Note that the words "on a show that has a" were not in the above quote.

Using the song is a different story then using the name for your show.
