 The National cover Bobs Burgers Thanksgiving Song

Not much exists in the way of Thanksgiving Day songs (Iron Maiden’s “The Trooper” comes close maybe?) but the Fox show Bob’s Burgers is trying to right this wrong and add a Song of Thanks to the musical canon.

On this Sunday’s episode, Linda Belcher, the mom on the show, sings an little ditty about Thanksgiving, and the folks behind Bob’s Burgers decided that they should also have a more dour and dramatic version to compliment it. So of course they enlisted The National, and now we have a dreary Thanksgiving Day dirge to celebrate this, our most delicious national holiday.

Listen to both the Bob’s Burgers’ version, and The National’s version below (via Vulture).

This is neat to see a band that I
like play a holiday song on a show that I love. There have been a lot of
awesome moments like this on Bob’s Burgers throughout the seasons, so I started
saving this season to my DISH Hopper, because I have a 2TB hard drive and the
show is great for re-watching to wind down a night. With so many shows on my
lineup, I live for my sweatpants and DVR days, then usually have more than
enough TV gossip to talk about with DISH coworkers the next week. Now I hope that
they have more bands for other holiday shows.

Have The National gone mental?
