Hear Alison Krauss & The Union Station Cover ‘The Simpsons’ Theme For The Show’s 500th Episode

    Last night was the 500th episode of The Simpsons, which HOLY SHIT! 500 episodes is absurd, and about 150 of the last ones have been weak, but still: whenever you think U.S. popular culture stinks, remember it’s a place where a show like The Simpsons gets to 500 episodes. 

    To celebrate, the show had Alison Krauss and Union Station cover the main theme on last night’s episode, and it’s below for you. They turn it mad twangy, which is to be expected. Congrats to The Simpsons.
