In celebration of the release of “Game of Thrones” Season 6 on digital platforms (and the U.S. presidential election), fans of the HBO fantasy drama were invited last month to vote for which character they believe should sit on the Iron Throne of Westeros.
Although the results were close, Jon Snow and his running mate Lyanna Mormont emerged as the winners with 35 percent of the vote, edging out Daenerys Targaryen and Tyrion Lannister, who garnered 32 percent. Littlefinger and Sansa Stark followed at a close third with 31 percent. (It’s probably best not to mention Cersei Lannister and Qyburn’s measly 2 percent.)
To commemorate the Bastard of Winterfell’s victory, the comedy rock band Tenacious D — Kyle Gass, John Konesky and John Spiker — has released the track “Ode to Jon Snow (A Campaign Trail Song)” under the name Valyrian Steel.
The instrumental even comes with an appropriately epic introduction: “From deep within the rich musical subculture of King’s Landing, flute powered Valyrian Steel has stepped forward to gift a valiant battle cry dedicated to the official GOT Party nominee and running mate — an Ode to Snow.”
The seventh, and penultimate, season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” will air next summer.
