The Hold Steady’s “Game of Thrones” Drinking Song

If you watched this week’s episode all the way to the end, you may have caught this track called “The Bear and Maiden Fair.”  “Bawdy and sloppy” is how the producers wanted it–and that’s what they got.  

The track will be available as a 7-inch single on Record Store Day this Saturday.

    Good tune but it didn't necessarily fit the vibe of the show, I found.
