Joan Jett & The Blackhearts’ single “Season of The Witch” is the theme song for a Netflix series
Joan Jett & The Blackhearts have scored the theme song for the Netflix series The Sons of Sam: A Descent Into Darkness with their single “Season of The Witch.”
Screen Rant states the following in part about the choice of Jett‘s single as the theme song for the Netflix series:
“Netflix‘s The Sons of Sam: A Descent Into Darkness features the perfect theme song for its dark material. The true-crime limited series focuses on the infamous “Son of Sam” shootings that shook New York City in the late 1970s. Netflix‘s documentary Sons of Sam offers a fresh angle on the genre by focusing not on the killer (or even the murders), but journalist Maury Terry and the conspiracy that he fought — largely in vain — to expose.
In 1977, serial killer David Berkowitz was arrested for the murder of six people and attempted murder of several more; however, journalist Maury Terry sought to prove that Berkowitz hadn’t acted alone. As the series demonstrates, there is ample evidence to suggest Berkowitz had accomplices. Terry wrote a book on the subject, The Ultimate Evil, in which he argued Berkowitz belonged to a Satanic cult — and that his fellow cultists were accomplices to the crimes.
Sons of Sam uses the iconic song “Season of the Witch” for its theme, but with the added punk energy of the Joan Jett cover. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts recorded “Season of the Witch” for the 2004 album Naked. It’s an aggressive, edgy, and downright captivating version — which perfectly summarizes the tone and content of the Netflix true-crime series.”
