The Mountain Goats – “The Ultimate Jedi Who Wastes All The Other Jedi And Eats Their Bones”

Twitter has been responsible a number of unexpected yet excellent musical collaborations, typically born out of artists tweeting admiration for one another from across the Internet (see: the forthcoming Car Seat Headrest/Smash Mouth split EP), and today the social media site has to its credit yet another gem. Over the weekend Rian Johnson, who is helming the forthcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi, egged on John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats to actually write a song for his joke subtitle for the new movie “The Ultimate Jedi Who Wastes All The Other Jedi And Eats Their Bones.” Of course, given a request by the director of Breaking Bad’s critically acclaimed “Ozymandias” episode, Darnielle complied and sent over the following acoustic tune.
