Patti Smith Sings 'Aqua Teen Hunger Force' Elegy: Listen
Patti Smith: punk legend, Hall of Famer and singer of "Aqua Teen" songs. All of these things are true.
Smith, whose 1975 album release Horses inspired the New York punk scene and is considered one of the finest in recorded music history, has performed a song for the upcoming finale of Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
The Adult Swim cable network has shared the piano-and-vocals track "Aqua Teen Dream," which it describes as a “haunting elegy for the dearly departed.”
Sings Smith, “I never dreamed, I’d be an Aqua Teen. Thirteen seasons, what did it mean? A Master Shake, Meatwad, a floating head. And now you’re dead. And it’s the end, of ‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force.'”
The dark dirge will appear at the end of the animated cult series’ final episode which premieres this Sunday (Aug. 23).
Weird, surreal, bizarre…punk. Take your pick and listen below.
