The start of the final season of 'True Blood' snuck up on me, and I am not sure how. After all, I had been watching some of the earlier season marathons this week. After all, how can I miss a chance to see Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgård, Ryan Kwanten, Sam Trammell, and Joe Manganiello in various states of undress? But with the start of every episode, I am reminded what a good song it has for a theme song. "Bad Things", as performed by Country singer Jace Everett, is a perfect match for the show, with a sexy and Southern edge.
"Bad Things" was written and first recorded by the band The Radiacs, a group that blends Psychedelia with Rockabilly for a unique sound. But the show picked up a cover by Jace Everett, whose rich tone gives an added weight to the song, especially the bad things in the title. And his southern twang helps to relate the recording to the Louisiana base of the show. This is the music video for Jace Everett's "Bad Things".
