As is the summer Sunday night custom in this house, once the kids are in bed on comes the HBO TV series True Blood. Once the dark and moody opening theme “Bad Things” kicks in you know you are in for a supernatural ride. On September 6th, True Blood Soundtrack Volume 3 will be released, featuring the theme by Jace Everett and many other tracks from the third season (including that “She’s Not There” cover by Nick Cave and Neko Case).
Included in the four track bonus Digital Deluxe version is a cover of “Bad Things” by garage rock revival band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. In addition to bringing a bit of grunge to the theme, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club also has their song “Shuffle Your Feet” featured in an upcoming episode this season. (via Entertainment Weekly)
