Lynyrd Skynyrd Records 'Squidbillies' Theme

LynyrdSkynyrd 061810

Lynyrd Skynyrd have recorded a version of the theme song to the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim program Squidbillies.

The Southern rockers aren't the only band to redo the title music, with Billy Joe Shaver, George Jones, Widespread Panic, Drive-By Truckers, 38 Special and Trampled by Turtles doing the same in the past.

Ultimate Classic Rock, however, notes that Skynyrd's rendition may be the most well suited:

"Skynyrd's involvement is particularly apropos, given that the squid known as Early Cuyler is an avid fan of the band who's been known to randomly spout off song titles."

The AV Club also had high praise for the rendition, saying the boys gave the track "a thoroughly honky-tonk-slathered treatment worthy of the Skynyrd name."

The theme tune is currently available at the AV Club's website.
