    The Queen's Guard has treated onlookers to a rendition of the "Game of Thrones" theme song outside of the Buckingham Palace. Travelers gather from throughout world to see the changing of the guards every morning. No doubt "Game of Thrones" fanatics were doubly pleased. 

    This isn't the first time the Queen has shown her fandom. Last month, the reigning queen of the House of Windsor visited the show's set and saw the Iron Throne, which is the center of the mythical Westeros, with the show's creators, David Benioff and Dan Weiss. For the Brits' sake, we hope the Queen isn't getting her reigning tips from the Lannisters.
    The catchy theme song has been subjected to several remakes, including this jazzy lick from the Swamp Donkeys.

    Funny man Wil Wheaton did his own rendition of the entire opening scene with a genius hybrid of the HBO series and the "Brady Bunch".

    DJ-turned-actor Kristian Nairn will likely showcase his own version of the theme song during his new tour, "Rave of Thrones." Best known for his role as "Hodor," a man of very few words, Nairin will start a six-show DJ tour in Australia at the end of August. The set will showcase "the deepest house from all seven kingdoms," according to a release. With a "Game of Thrones" mandatory dress code, Australia might be briefly plagued with countless Khaleesis, Tyrions, Snows and maybe a White Walker or two.

    "Game of Thrones" has had tremendous success, confirmed when it was announced the most popular HBO series of all time, beating out "The Sopranos" for that title. The show earned 19 noms for the upcoming Emmy Awards, including best drama series.

    After an explosive season four finale — Tyrion finally obtained revenge on his father, Arya is off on her own and Jon Snow betrayed the wildlings for good — fans await a lively fifth season, which will premiere in spring 2015.
