Ok so I wanted to make a post to celebrate the new season of The Weeds which will be airing tonight. Being that I have never watched the show, it makes it hard for me to make a tribute to it. I really want to though because the show is supposed to be good and it’s named Weeds. How can you go wrong with a name like that?
So today I asked about the show on twitter and found out that they used to change the singer of the intro song for every episode. That is such a great idea. The Wire used to do that but it was season to season, not every episode. According to my boy @DeadLand on twitter, they stopped tho.
@Hail_Mary_Jane yeah they stopped all that last season? after they moved out of suburbia
That sucks but this post will bring all of that back. Here is a compilation of most of the singers from the Weeds intros of seasons 2 and 3. (Note: All of Season 1 used the original version by Malvina Reynolds)
