EDITORS’ NOTES

It isn’t just Joe and Jane Average curled up on the couch binge-watching Game of Thrones in comfy sweats; it’s also your favorite artists, cradling a bowl of snacks, streaming away on the tour bus. As this compilation of Thrones-inspired songs makes clear, their fascination with the fabled HBO drama runs deep. On “Too Many Gods,” A$AP Rocky and Joey Bada$$ mull over false prophets while dropping in a GoT reference (“Playing with fire but I’m no Targaryen”). Singer-songwriters like Jacob Banks, Lennon Stella, Chloe x Halle, and ROSALÍA imbue their tributes with stern keys and an existential dread that's so familiar to the show's fans. And it’s especially fun to hear a pop singer like Ellie Goulding tap into a sinister ruthlessness on “Hollow Crown”: “Making a noose out of your hollow crown/I hold a match up to your paper castle/And watch it all burn down, down, down.”

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Why does this exist?

Just what we need an album full of brain dead, mouth breathing pop “stars” and equally talentless “rappers” performing songs about GoT. This show screams metal, not this garbage. It makes about as much sense as Cannibal Corpse doing songs inspired by Driving Miss Daisy.

Perfect soundtrack for the seven kingdoms finality

Exhibits every emotion endured throughout the 8 seasons.

Loved all of it

I don’t know what other commentators are complaining about; I think every song is awesome. Each one has lyrics in it that remind any GoT fan of different characters, episodes, or even whole seasons. It’s a lovely tribute from talented artists who are GoT fans and who pay homage to a fantastic show. Wolf At Your Door is my favorite.
