Hear Grey Worm From Game Of Thrones Sing On Sounwave-Produced Track

There are plenty of unconventional routes to rap or R&B stardom, but up until now, “playing a castrated super-soldier on a fantasy TV show” has not been one of them. But perhaps Raleigh Ritchie will break that glass ceiling. Ritchie is a singer and rapper from Bristol, and he plays Grey Worm, leader of Daenery… More »

Mastodon Were Wildlings On Game Of Thrones Last Night

For the most part, Game Of Thrones has done a remarkable job maintaining the consistency of its fictional universe, avoiding things like cameos from real-life celebrities, the sort of things that can rip you right out of the story. There are exceptions, though. During the moments before the show’s bigger events, it’ll sometimes work i… More »

Watch Coldplay’s Game Of Thrones: The Musical In Full

The members of Coldplay are human beings alive in 2015, so like the rest of us, they’re all big Game Of Thrones fans; drummer Will Champions even played one of the musicians during the show’s Red Wedding season. And as part of the fundraising comedy marathon Red Nose Day, they’ve been working on a musical… More »

Watch A Teaser For Coldplay & Peter Dinklage’s Game Of Thrones Musical

Game Of Thrones isn’t what anyone would really call a funny show. (Especially after last week’s ending. Yee.) But it does have funny moments, and most of those moments come from Peter Dinklage’s portrayal of Tyrion Lannister. And now Dinklage will get to do some A-list self-deprecation. As part of the money-raising comedy marathon RedMore »

Game Theory Of Thrones: Watch The Roots Recap Last Season In Under Two Minutes

The next season of Game Of Thrones will be upon us in a little over a week’s time, but it’s admittedly kind of hard to keep track of everything that happened last year. Thankfully, the Roots have us covered. Following an audience suggestion on Jimmy Fallon, Tariq Trotter (aka Black Thought) launched into a rundow… More »

Download Game Of Thrones Mixtape Catch The Throne: The Mixtape Volume II

Last year, someone at HBO had the frankly absurd idea to put together Catch The Throne, a mixtape compilation built around Game Of Thrones. This year, they’ve made another one, and they’ve gone ahead and made it even weirder. Suffice to say: You will probably not hear Mushroomhead and Talib Kweli on a compilation agai… More »

Mastodon – “White Walker”

It didn’t make any sense last year when HBO released a mixtape of rappers referencing Game Of Thrones, and it doesn’t make any more sense this year. But it’s happening again anyway! And the forthcoming Catch The Throne Vol. 2 won’t just feature rappers and R&B singers like Ty Dolla $ign, Talib Kweli, Snoop Dogg,… More »

The Best Soundtrack Moments Of January 2015: Game Of Thrones, The Americans, A Most Violent Year, & More

January is a tricky month for this column. Of course, it’s when all the bad movies come out. A bunch of great TV shows returned last month, but a lot of them — Parks And Recreation, Archer, Justified — haven’t historically made use of a ton of pop songs. And then you’ve got Girls, perennially… More »

10 Cover Songs By Chvrches, Ranked

It was just over two years ago that Glasgow trio Chvrches first tapped their synth keys into our hearts with their dark, romantic pop. Aside from their Recover EP and full-length debut The Bones Of What You Believe, the band has given us a lot of listening material, covering songs by many other artists at… More »

Rave Of Thrones: A Night With DJ Hodor At House B.B. King

There are few things that would convince me it’s a good idea to go to Times Square on a Friday night. Let alone the Friday preceding what is, for some people, a long weekend; the area seemed extra clogged with drunken tourists this past Friday. And, hey, that’s good for them, it’s just not where… More »

Watch Weird Al Make Up TV Theme Song Lyrics On The Emmys

We were kind of close when we speculated last week that Weird Al would perform at an awards show. We thought it would be the VMAs because, you know, music, but it turns out that he was preparing for a surprise appearance at tonight’s Emmy Awards. He performed in a segment where he made u… More »

Grimes Realizes Game Of Thrones Life Goals At Comic-Con, Defends Socks With Sandals

If you follow Grimes on Twitter, you’d know that she’s a borderline obsessive fan of Game Of Thrones. For a while, her Twitter name was Grimes Of Tarth, a reference to a character named Brienne. This weekend, all her dreams came true at Comic-Con when she got to shake hands with author George R. R. More »

Hodor Announces “Rave Of Thrones” DJ Tour

When we’re watching Game Of Thrones and Hodor, the gentle dimbulb giant who can only say his own name, comes onscreen, we all obviously think the same thing: I want to watch that guy spin house music. In reality, Kristian Nairn, the towering Northern Irish actor who plays Hodor, is also a fixture on Belfast’… More »

Game Of Thrones Offered Lily Allen A Role Entailing Real Life Incest

Lily Allen’s younger brother plays Theon Greyjoy, the sniveling and scheming and now deeply traumatized onetime heir to the Iron Islands, on Game Of Thrones. On the show, there was a scene two seasons ago where Greyjoy relentlessly hit on his younger sister, the warrior princess Yara, before realizing who she was. (There also appeared… More »

The Best Soundtrack Moments Of April 2014: Fargo, Mad Men, Game Of Thrones, & More

Chances are you’ve read some TV writer or another analyzing just how different this time of year is than it used to be. April used to be when everything was winding down, and now you have heavy-hitters returning and newcomers popping up alongside each other, accompanied by previews for what’s yet to come in the… More »

Watch Sigur Rós’s Game Of Thrones Cameo

Last night’s episode of Game Of Thrones ended with Sigur Rós’s version of “The Rains Of Castamere,” a song that tends to play on the show when some serious shit is either about to go down or just did go down. If you ever find yourself in Westeros and the opening strains of “The Rai… More »

Sigur Rós – “The Rains Of Castamere” (Game Of Thrones Cover)

Tonight’s Game Of Thrones is a must-watch, not only because of some huge events that take place but also because Sigur Rós will be scoring some of said events. Their version of traditional Westeros folk song “The Rains Of Castamere” (which was previously… More »

The Best Soundtrack Moments Of March 2014: Game Of Thrones, Archer, The Americans, & More

This column has started to take me to unforeseen territory: like a luxury theater in Naples, FL, the odd-man out amongst elderly retirees and pre-teen spring breakers killing a rainy afternoon at a showing of Divergent. The reason I wound up at Divergent is that it’s yet another YA franchise that has gone about curating… More »

London Grammar – “Devil Inside” (INXS Cover)

If we were the sort of website that posted more than just music, we would be absolutely all over every single trailer for the forthcoming Game Of Thrones season. As it is, we now have a reason to post about the show. The new trailer for the show’s fourth season features a new song: British… More »
