Top of the Pops (TOTP) was a BBC music show broadcast from 1964 to 2006. Each show featured the top bands of the week and ran down the music of the charts. While the show no longer exists as a weekly program, a special broadcast on Christmas Day and a weekly show airs performances from the BBC archives of the 1970s and 1980s.

A sample from Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love was used as the TOTP theme music for much of the 1970s, and from May 1998 to November 2003 a cover version was used.
