Indie rock band The National predict the end of 'Game of Thrones'



"Game of Thrones" has a long history of featuring great bands.

From pop singer Ed Sheeran as a Lannister soldier to metal band Mastadon playing White Walkers, the HBO epic loves throwing in some unexpected, and sometimes unnoticeable cameos.

But Ohio rockers The National made their stamp on GOT history by recording a version of “The Rains of Castamere” which played over the credits at the end of the infamous season 2 episode “Blackwater”.

We caught up with The National at the iHeart ALTer EGO concert in Los Angeles to ask if, like all true fans, they had a prediction for how they think the upcoming final season will end.

The band's frontman, Matt Beringer, gave seemingly the most unexpected answer:

I think everybody’s gonna be ok, pretty much. I’m an optimist, I think everyone’s gonna be alright … Well that guy died, the holding the door guy, Hodor. That would've been a good king.

One of band's guitarists, Aaron Dessner, is taking a more reasonable approach though:

I like Kit Harington. I'm betting on him.

While the other guitarist Scott Devendorf gives the most obvious answer:

A dragon.

Winter may be here, but we're still over a year away from finding out who will take the Iron Throne once and for all.
