The Wire and M.I.A.

Check out the gorgeousness of cool covers and smash-ups.

M.I.A. has done a cover of HBO's The Wire's opening theme song.

The opening theme is "Way Down in the Hole", a gospel-blues inspired song originally written by Tom Waits for his 1987 album Franks Wild Years. Each season uses a different recording of it against a different opening sequence. Read more here.
