TV On The Radio covered Game Of Thrones‘ theme music during their gig in Brisbane, Australia this week.
The Brooklyn band began their encore with a 90-second dub version of the HBO show’s theme, which they then segued into ‘Ride’, a track from their fifth and most recent album ‘Seeds’. Watch fan footage of the band’s Game Of Thrones cover below.
Meanwhile, HBO recently recruited trance musician Armin van Buuren to rework Game Of Thrones‘ theme music, which was originally created by composer Ramin Djawadi. Listen to the official remix here.
Metal outfit Mastodon made a cameo appearance on the show in an episode aired in the US last month (May 31). Three-quarters of the Atlanta group, who previously contributed original song ‘White Walker’ to Game Of Thrones mixtape ‘Catch The Throne Vol 2’, were invited by executive producer Dan Weiss to play ‘wildlings’. In the episode they were brutally murdered with knives before being resurrected by White Walkers.
The metal band aren’t the first well-known musicians to pop up in an episode of Game Of Thrones. Snow Patrol’s lead singer Gary Lightbody played a soldier in a Season Three episode; Coldplay’s Guy Berryman made a cameo as a drummer in another episode of Season Three; and Sigur Rós appeared as musicians during an episode of Season Four.
