Listen to the Hold Steady Song That Played Over the ‘Game of Thrones’ Credits Last Night
I'm talking, of course, about the song that played over the end credits. What'd you think I was talking about?
Who could have seen a Hold Steady song—sounding like it was ripped straight from the jukebox of the best dive bar you've ever been to—playing over the end credits of a swords-and-castles fantasy? The lyrics were written by George R.R. Martin and the composition came from show composer Ramin Djawadi, but it was unmistakably the Hold Steady's. Listen to “The Bear & The Maiden Fair” again above.
