It's hard to remember the last time an instrumental theme to a television show or movie drilled itself as deeply into the collective consciousness as Game of Thrones. Something that's both instantly recognizable (even to non-show-watchers) and easily singable, even though there are no lyrics. Was it Star Wars? Maybe Raiders of the Lost Ark? Does the Seinfeld bass slap count?

At any rate, Ramin Djawadi's masterful main title theme has inspired more tributes and variations than can be collected here without melting our servers, so here's just a few of the most ingenius and most interesting:

The Smooth Jazz Version


The Queen's Guard Version


The Tesla Coil Version


The Spaghetti Western Version


The Bossa Nova Version


The 1980s Synth Version


The Dixieland Version


The 8 Bit Version


The Samba Version


The Floppy Drive Version


The Dubstep Version


The Bell Tower Version


The Jazz Fusion Version

The Ska Version


The Industrial EDM Version
