Watch Daenerys' "Mad Queen" moment set to Metallica's "For Whom the Bell Tolls"

(SPOILERS AHEAD) During last Sunday’s episode of Game of Thrones, many of the soldiers and citizens of King’s Landing looked up in the sky and saw Daenerys Targaryen and her dragon Drogon raining fire down upon them. So it makes sense that one enterprising YouTube user would set that sequence to the Metallica song “For Whom the Bell Tolls.”
The video starts with the moment the bells of King’s Landing start to ring, mimicking the opening of the 1984 thrash classic. The rest of the song fits eerily well with the whole scene, including when the main riff comes in at about the 1:50 mark, just as Grey Worm throws his spear into the body of a Lannister soldier.
Meanwhile, another YouTube user shared a video of the sequence set to the instrumental version of AC/DC‘s “Hells Bells.”
The series finale of Game of Thrones airs this Sunday, May 19 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
