This is not the first time the popular music world has crossed over into Westeros though. In 2012, The National recorded The Rains of Castamere for the HBO epic drama. Then two years later, the Catch the Throne hip-hop mixtape came out with songs by Big Boi, Daddy Yankee, Common, and others, followed by a second volume featuring Mastodon, Estelle, Method Man, and more. In addition, popular singers or bands like Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, and Sigur Rós have made a cameo in the HBO series.
