Sigur Ros and Their Game of Thrones Song

Remember when members Coldplay quietly showed up to provide some music at the infamous Red Wedding? We all know how that ended, right?  Well, King Joffrey had a Purple Wedding (that’s what we’ll call it) and this time Sigur Ros masqueraded as the live entertainment.

If we’re to learn anything from this, it would be :  (a) don’t name your wedding after a colour if you ever expect to see the next morning; and (b) if you’re going to be cast as a wedding band on GoT, you won’t be back for a second episode. Ever.  That’s all I’m saying. (Then again, the books have been out for a long time, so it’s not like what happened was a TOTAL surprise…)
