Post -- who helped create the theme songs for Law & Order, The A-Team, The Rockford Files, NYPD Blue, Quantum Leap and Hill Street Blues -- remembered Bochco pitching him on the 1990 ABC singing cops series. "Don't" do it, Post recalls telling Bochco. "'No, Steven, I’m telling you this is too hard. This is too f*cking hard!' I said to him, 'America is not ready for the cops singing. They’re not ready for that.'" Reflecting on his work on Cop Rock, Post says: "It was a ballbuster, but in weird ways I was proud of it. People either loved it or hated it."
