TV shows that used thematically remixed/covered versions of their theme songs for particular episodes.

The first two seasons of Sons of Anarchy used this pretty terrible song
in the intro sequence. For part of the third season, which takes place in Ireland, they used this
remixed version with bodhrans and flutes and shit, as if to say, Hey, look, now we're in Ireland! What other shows have done this?
I know The Wire, for example, had a different musician cover the theme song for each season, and Weeds had a different cover every (?) episode (I've only seen a couple of them) but I'm not aware of any thematic significance to those versions.
