Hear the Mountain Goats’ ‘Star Wars’ Song, For Which, Sadly, The World Was Not Ready


OK, maybe it’s not entirely serious: the song, which started as a joke between John Darnielle and Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, is now a real thing.

Clearly, a song that includes the line “The dust of Jedi bones piled up like parsnips on his plate/ Specifically just the bones/ The soft parts you can keep” should be the official goddamn Star Wars theme, but in our imperfect world, it’s been relegated to the oubliette of Soundcloud.
