The Milk Carton Kids are now among artists who have covered the Squidbillies theme from Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. Watch the video above.

The original theme song is a medium tempo honky-tonk by Billy Joe Shaver. This version is softer with gentle vocals. However, The Milk Carton Kids keep the country tone with a slide guitar. Although there are only four lines in the song, many musicians have taken it to outrageous places. Compared to other renditions, this one may seem tame, but a sweet sounding folk duet being played in a warped show like Squidbillies creates a comedic disjointedness. Catch new episodes of Squidbillies every Sunday on Adult Swim at 11:45 PM.

Another version of this track by King Khan and The Shrines can be found right here on Zumic.
