The Walking Dead Meets Clutch?

Article by FisterRoboto of

I was almost cheering tonight when the opening notes began. It was such a painful and somber moment to watch the group light the funeral pyre. The vibe of The Regulator was the absolute perfect song choice. I’m curious who the Clutch fan on the show is. You just don’t get a classic Clutch song on your show. I was thrilled to see my love of music and horror come face to face.

The Regulator from the Clutch album Blast Tyrant

I see that lantern trimmed low burning in our home.
And though I feel like crying, I swear tonight, I’ll cry no more.

And how many times have I prayed
That I would get lost along the way?

Dream with the feathers of angels stuffed beneath your head.
The regulator’s swinging pendulum.

Come with me and walk the longest mile.

Is his wallet leather? Is his wallet fat?
For not a year later it’s got you lying on your back.
You should have closed your windows and got another dog.
You should have chained up all the doors and switched up all the locks.

And how many times have I prayed
The angels would speed me away.

Dream with the feathers of angels stuffed beneath your head.
The regulator’s swinging pendulum.

Come with me and walk the longest mile.

  1. That was epic, Clutch is my favorite band out there, I knew a few days in advance because I get text updates for Clutch. They texted me saying regulator would play on my favorite tv series (walking dead), I actually forgot about it while I was watching but right at the end when it started I jumped up and got goosebumps haha.

    • Seriously! Clutch are king. I saw them last year in this tiny club and they destroyed the place. They made for a very appropriate Walking Dead tune.

      Thanks for the comment, Dan! \m/

    Whooly agreed , I felt a strange connection to Walking Dead before hand. Id been listening to Clutch, years before. When I heard the first few notes of The Regulator, ” my pants were around my freekin ankles “. When the Apoc happens, I hope our satelites run autonomously from a solar based power source, so that my rhapsody music will continue to pump Clutch on into the afterlife. I rather have zombies, I dont wanna hafta ride my elephant across a mushroom cloud. Peace, and smoke one for me.
