Terrible People write another song about Bill Murray. Watch the music video. Features comedian as zombie.

Bill Murray has another song about him. How many comedians have multiple songs named for them, anyhow? I suppose I could look into that.

But first, here's the most recent "Bill Murray" track to get recorded, and Terrible People have done it. Terrible People, of course, is a rock band from Phoenix, Ariz. And they made a music video for their ode to Murray, casting comedian Jim Tavare in the lead role as a zombie (referencing Zombieland) as the band sings lyrics referencing several of Murray's other cinematic roles.

Roll the clip!

Of course, you may recall that Gorillaz had a track called "Bill Murray" on their album, D-Sides. But they're not the only ones to put their love of the comedic actor on record.

The official Gorillaz video for Murray isn't much to look out unless you're already zoned-out by ambient light and music, so here's a fan-made video of that Gorillaz track.

One thought on “Terrible People write another song about Bill Murray. Watch the music video. Features comedian as zombie.

  1. The nod to Bill Murray in the song of the same name by Terrible People pays homage to many of Murray’s roles such as Groundhog Day and Lost in Translation just to name a few with Zombieland the most obvious. This video illustrates through Tavare’s performance the “dead” existence of American society in the collapse of today’s socioeconomic state. Jim Tavare brings to life a tragic clown whose death is applicable to every man with brains attempting to stay alive.
