The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air debuted 25 years ago today, and in addition to introducing network-TV viewers to the Fresh Prince himself, Will Smith, one of the most memorable parts about the show was its catchy theme song.

Over the years, pop stars and country crooners alike have taken a shot at rapping the tune, so we're celebrating the anniversary with some of our favorite covers.

1. One Direction

2. Jimmy Fallon as Neil Young

3. Hunter Hayes, Sara Evans, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan and more

4. Fifth Harmony

5. Ingrid Michaelson

Honorable mention: Jimmy Fallon’s Fresh Prince Cold Open
