Probably the worst thing to happen to The Walking Dead aside from this season’s opener, is the repeated use of the song Easy Street by The Collapsable Hearts Club (the typo just extends how annoying this group actually is) in the third episode of Season 7. The song, which you’ve likely been unable to get out of your head, was that annoying – or addictive, that it’s entered the UK’s Official Music Chart as one of the top singles.
Yep, the song, which was used in an effort to drive hard man, Daryl Dixon, insane, has clearly done one over on the UK as this week Easy Street found its place in the ninety-second place in the top 100 singles chart.
This, in part, is thanks to the song being available on Spotify which, a few days after its launch, managed to rack up over 100,000 listens. Of course chances of these being actual genuine plays and not plays just to annoy friends, remains to be seen.
It just goes to show that even a band with a typo in its name can some how make it in the world, even if it’s from a program where the song was used as a form of torture.
If you’re yet to hear this earworm, you can do so in the video below, where it’s on loop for 10 straight hours. Also, I’m surprised no one has started a petition to get this song as this year’s Christmas Number One.
