Peaky Blinders season 5 is out in America on October 4th on Netflix and to celebrate the occasion BBC just dropped a video of Snoop Dogg performing the show’s theme song and as you would expect from Snoop Dogg, it is fantastic.

The song, called Red Right Hand, is a classic from Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds. It was released in 1994 and its dark, foreboding lyrics and melody are a perfect fit for the tone of the Peaky Blinders series and its antihero Thomas Shelby (Cillian Murphy). So perfect in fact that you now can’t listen to the song anymore without thinking of the Shelby family.

It looks like Snoop Dogg is a fan of the show and really, who can blame him, it’s so very good. In this video he covers Red Right Hand and proclaims himself Snoop Shelby. He even has the cap. Watch it. It’s amazing!

 

In Peaky Blinders, Britain is a mixture of despair and hedonism in 1919 in the aftermath of the Great War. Returning soldiers, newly minted revolutions and criminal gangs are fighting for survival in a nation rocked by economic upheaval. One of the most powerful gangs of the time is the Peaky Blinders, run by returning war hero Thomas Shelby and his family. But Thomas has bigger ambitions than just running the streets

You can see all seasons on Netflix and the fifth season begins Friday, October 4th.
