The 'Deadwood'-Mothership connection
Is the theme from HBO's Deadwood inspired by Parliament's "Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)"?
For comparison, here's the Parliament song (note where they sing "You've got a real type of thing going down, gettin' down/There's a whole lot of rhythm going 'round"). And here's the Deadwood theme. (By the way, this cocksucker of a show is so compulsively rentable, clerks at my neighborhood DVD store call it "video crack.")
