Help me find Game of Thrones theme song parodies
May 2, 2014 5:58 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a good collection of parodies/novelty versions of the Game of Thrones theme song. I've googled around, but am afraid to click on random ones because I don't want the story spoiled beyond what's been portrayed on the TV show so far. I've found the brilliant Game of Phones and the, uh, inimitable Peter Dinklage. I've also suffered through the smooth jazz cover. What else is there?

Obviously, I can google, but there's lots of noise...have you found any that are particularly good (or "good")?

The version with lyrics always cracks me up. (NSFW language.)

Oh hell im on my mobile device and can't link but if you go to the daily beast and lookfor the best viral videos of the week there's one done with the screaming goats. The screaming goats always leave me helpless with laughter anyway and here they're screaming in harmony from time to time. Madness.

Not a parody (I've never seen the show, but nothing parody-like seems to happen), but Lindsey Stirling and Peter Hollens did a cover of the theme.

The Stark Kids did a really cute rendition of the opening on the DVD commentary.

(Not to thread-sit, but interesting covers are welcome, too!)

A musician at the University of Wisconsin figured out how to play the Game of Thrones theme in the University's Bell Tower.

I'm partial to Game of Hodor.

If you accept filks as "interesting covers",
Damn It Feels Good to be a Lannister
Write Like The Wind (by Paul and Storm, and which has an epilogue of sorts)

I'm not sure about good, or even "good", but there's a south park version with some interesting lyrics

There are numerous accordion covers I actually like. I'm on a phone, but a simple YouTube search should pull them all up.

The South Park version mentioned by quaking fajita is a stunningly accurate description of the HBO series.

I'm a sucker for vids where people perform all of the parts and edit themselves together, so here's a brilliant violin cover by Jason Yang doing all of the parts.

Someone recently posted a version made with wine glasses, a water jug, etc..
