Gintama has some of the best OP's and ED's I've come across. Over 300 episodes and I can't remember the last time I skipped an intro or ending.

Purely song-wise
OP 5 "Donten" by Does
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCq4-r9annU
(I literally have this on my iPod)

Overall
OP 9 "Tougenkyou Alien" by Serial TV Drama
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-B3rpKfva1w
If you want to know what the the series is about this sums it up perfectly (especially when taking into account this is the into the heroes manage to fuck up). The song is badass and gets you pumped too.

ED 2 "Mr. Raindrop" by Amplified
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxWRstvs_pk
The song is a happy little early 2000 sounding pop rock ditty. The animation is Elizabeth skipping in the rain (note: Elizabeth is an alien (man?) in a giant duck costume). It brings joy to the heart.

My favorite non-Gintama
Soul Eater OP 1 "Resonance"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tO2kE16XyuY
Beautiful animation, as always. Pumped up song with a Halloween-esque spice that fits the series so damn well.

Durara's first OP by Theatre Brooke, for sure. It's so hype.


Totally agree on this, it so perfectly encapsulates the feel & mood of the show. I havent come across another OP that is such a precise fit for it's series, and the Durarara OP's after 'Uragiri no Yuuyake' get progressively less evocative & appropriate, which is disappointing after such a great start.
I also fell in love with "Hey! Kids' by The Oral Cigarettes - OP for Noragami Aragoto & often find myself singing that!
A couple of ED's that I think rate a mention are: 'Daisy' by Stereo Dive Foundation - the ED for 'Beyond the Boundary'........Akihiko even struts to the beat of the song in this one!! And secondly: 'Yoru' by vistlip, a beautiful ballad for the first season ED of 'Akatsuki no Yona', of the type that gives you chills when you least expect it!!
There are a few others that I know I have rated well in the past, such as a couple of the Bakemonogatari franchise's character OP songs, which I cant recall atm; but these really stand out!! Of course, some favourites change often, some rarely, and I expect there will be plenty more in the future to take their place!!

This might me an oddball, but the HxH opening song in (chimera ant) is one of my favorites. This might just be my bias towards the serious though.

Lots of great songs already listed, but one ED I adore this season is the one from Konosuba.. The ending theme is "Chīsana Bōken-sha" (ちいさな冒険者?, lit."Little Adventurer") performed by Sora Amamiya, Rie Takahashi, and Ai Kayano

Most of you have listed many of my favorites. So here are a few I enjoy that weren't listed.

For an opening.
Gantz op 1: Super Shooter by Rip Slyme
Mainly for this song. This song got me listening to other Rip Slyme. Its super catchy to me.
https://youtu.be/JJYLBzBh4ZI

For an ending.
Outlaw Star ending 1 - Hiru no Tsuki
This song is just so beautiful and gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. Please look up the full version if you liked this.
https://youtu.be/d5yjcPHEhIk

Just because.
Welcome to the NHK Ending 1
I don't know....I just love watching the ending with this song. Makes me laugh every time.
