Yep. You read right. Sigur Rós will be featured in The Simpsons Season Finale this weekend. The band has composed an original score for the episode including their version of The Simpsons theme song! Crazy cool! This is taken from the Sigur Rós site…

“Sigur Rós have scored part of an upcoming episode of The Simpsons. The episode, which will feature new, original music by Sigur Rós, as well as their take on The Simpsons’ theme song, will air on May 19th. In the episode, entitled “The Saga of Carl,” Homer, Moe, Lenny, and Carl team up to buy a winning lottery ticket, but after Carl snags the ticket and flees to his home country of Iceland, the guys head there in hot pursuit. The band’s music scores Homer’s visit to Iceland, marking an unprecedented musical collaboration between the show and a band; with this episode, Sigur Rós have written and performed more original music for The Simpsons than any other outside band in the show’s history.

Simpsons creator Matt Groening said, “I’m a longtime fan of Sigur Rós, and we’re honored to bring their Icelandic, ambient moods to our goofy cartoon show.”
Watch it this Sunday, May 19th on Fox.
