The Season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones brought quite a few surprises, but one quickly became the most talked about: British musician Ed Sheeran’s cameo. The popular U.K. singer made an appearance in which he interacted with Arya Stark and sang a song for her.
Though many weren’t fans of such a famous modern pop star jarring them out of their beloved fantasy world, this isn’t the first time GoT has featured such a guest. Here are the musical cameos that came before Sheeran’s.
Sheeran wasn’t the only musician in the Season 7 premiere. Drummer Brann Dailor made an appearance as a White Walker, though he was difficult to identify.
Members of this American heavy metal band, which has been around since the turn of the century, just keep coming back to this fantasy world. In Season 5, three-quarters of the band, including Dailor, appeared in an episode as Wildings.
