We all know that metalheads love the widely-popular TV series Game of Thrones. Back in 2015, Mastodon did a cameo in the show and they were also included in the second volume of the show’s mixtape “Catch the Throne” alongside Mushroomhead and Anthrax. Now, we wouldn’t be surprised if in the next mixtape a System of a Down song gets included, because Serj Tankian just covered the song “The Rains of Castamere” live during the “Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience.” Check out the performance below:

The song’s lyrics are from the novel, but the studio version of the song was originally recorded by alternative rock band The National. Listen to their version below: 

The song has also been recorded by experimental rock band Sigur Ros. Check out their version below:
