Alan Ball, the creator of the show, […] he is an i-Tunes junkie and he happened to download that song on a whim and he really liked it and so when they started putting together the show he brought that song into Digital Kitchen and said do a montage to this for the opening credits […] everybody just wound up falling in love with it and they didn’t even bother looking for anything else […]”

Now, Bad Things has become synonymous with all the good things of True Blood!
