Sigur Ros' Cover of 'The Rains of Castamere' for Game of Thrones Revealed
Earlier this month, Sigur Ros gave us a sneak peek of their cover of "The Rains of Castamere" for "Game of Thrones." Now, the full version of the traditional Westeros folk song has finally been unveiled. The Icelandic outfit's haunting and foreboding take is streaming below and is available for sale over at Amazon. It's definitely not the "Game of Thrones"' hip-hop mixtape.

To coincide with the song's premiere, Sigur Ros appeared on tonight's episode, "The Lion and the Rose." The trio served as the official wedding band. Stay tuned for video.

"The Rains of Castamere" was originally written by George R. R. Martin and famously soundtracked last season's "Red Wedding" episode. The National previously offered up their own rendition for an episode in the series' second season.
