Tonight, the Winds of Winter will arrive on HBO’s Game of Thrones for the sixth season finale of George R.R. Martin‘s epic fantasy saga. To mark the occasion. popular YouTube musicians Eric Calderone (a.k.a. Erock) and Jonathan Young have joined forces for a very Game of Thrones inspired cover of the theme song from Team America: World Police. That song might be better known by its official title, “America, F*ck Yeah!”
Fair warning: like the original, this cover is very NSFW and we’ve lost count of the number F-bombs that got dropped in the video. Trust us, it’s a lot! This version of the song also features new GoT inspired lyrics as well as an extended listing of things to go “F*ck Yeah!” about. Young even follows the pattern laid out by South Park co-creator and Team America songwriter Trey Parker by giving the chorus topics which eventually forces them to question what they’re endorsing…at least briefly. Even the secret of Hodor is revisited in this version, so don’t watch this video if you’ve somehow managed to miss the heartbreaking episode where that truth was revealed.
We’ve recently covered Calderone’s heavy metal inspired covers of the themes from the Ducktales video game, Rick and Morty, X-Men: The Animated Series, Captain America: The First Avenger, and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
