The Game Of Thrones theme song has been given as many renditions as are befitting for one of the biggest television phenomenons of the early 21st Century. However, we think this swampy, NOLA take on the show’s iconic theme tune by the Swamp Donkeys might be the best we’ve heard yet.
The Swamp Donkeys Traditional Jass Band, as they call themselves, recently performed this spicy rendition at the BB King Blues Club & Grill in Times Square, New York City, perfect timing as the show reached the conclusion of its action-packed fourth season on HBO over the past weekend.
Readers can check out the Swamp Donkeys Traditional Jass Band take on the GoT theme below and make your comparisons to the original (also below), the smooth jazz version over here, the spectacular bell tower version here, or Sigur Ros’ cover of The Rains Of Castamere here.
