Tenacious D Spin-Off Band Valyrian Steel Pens Ode to 'Game of Thrones' Hero Jon Snow's Election Victory: Listen
If you're sick of the mud-slinging and character assassination of the real presidential election, and you're a Game of Thrones fan, chances are you voted in HBO's recent side contest for the "GOT Party." After a fierce competition pitting family, rivals and friends against each other, candidates Jon Snow and running mate Lyanna Mormont (35%) won a squeaker vote over Daenerys Targaryen and Tyrion Lannister (32%), Petyr Baelish and Sansa Stark (31%) and Cersei Lanniser and Qyburn (2%) thanks to more than 1.6 million votes.
As a tribute to their hard-fought victory, Tenacious D's Kyle Gass teamed up with some musical compatriots (D guitarist John Konesky and bassist John Spiker) as Valyrian Steel to pen a lute- and flute-tastic song championing Snow's triumph called "Ode to Snow (A Campaign Trail Song)."
