The Walking Dead: The Series, a new episodic series from AMC Networks, premieres on Friday, Oct. 9 at 9 p.m.
ET/PT on AMC.
If you’re new to The Walking: The Complete Series, here’s our guide to the series so far.
Read on for our picks for our favorite songs and the lyrics of the first episode of each episode.1.
“We Are The Walking” (Ace of Spades) by Frank OceanThe album’s opening track “We are the Walking” opens the episode with an upbeat instrumental that makes for a nice backdrop for the rest of the show.
In “We’re Going Home,” Frank sings of the apocalypse and how people will eventually have to face it.
“I hope you’re happy,” he sings.
“It will be the greatest day of your life.”2.
“Frozen” by Frank Lloyd WrightFrank Lloyd Wright’s “Friedrich,” which was featured on the soundtrack to the first season of The Walking and is also featured on The Walking-themed Disney film Frozen, is a classic, but it’s also one of the only songs that references Frank’s own life.
In the song, Frank sings about how his father was killed by Nazis and that his mother was raped and murdered by a mentally disabled man.
“She tried to give me a second chance, but I just kept dying,” he says, adding that the last thing he remembers is seeing his mother and father lying on the ground.3.
“Tiger Song” by The WhoA song by The Beatles, which featured on their iconic song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” is the only one of Frank’s songs that’s actually in the first song.
Frank sings, “I was a kid in a garage, listening to the radio / I thought I was in love with a girl,” but that’s not the case at all.
In fact, he only really knows the song is about the Beatles when his mom tells him she’s going to marry him.4.
“Gimme Shelter” by BeyoncéFrankly, it’s not that unusual for a song to be the first thing you hear on a new show.
But Beyoncé’s “Gimmie Shelter,” which features Frank singing a verse about the love of his life, is just so great.
It was the first track Frank sang on The CW series The 100 and has since become an integral part of his own album.5.
“Maggie” by the PixiesFrank Lloyd Wood’s “Molly and the Chocolate Factory,” which featured Frank on the title track on The Pinkerton show, is the first of many song lyrics that reference Frank’s childhood.
It’s one of those songs that makes you wonder, “Was it real?”
Frank says he once got a “good laugh” from it.6.
“Papa Roach” by Jay-Z, Jay-Co and Lil WayneThe rapper’s first song “Papo Roach,” which he sang in a video for the song “Baby Don’t Cry,” is also a great song for Frank’s songwriting.
Frank was on the show for a short time as a contestant, but he also wrote the music for Lil Wayne’s album, “Black Album,” and Jay-Sos debut album.
Frank is also one half of a duo called “Papa Roach and the J.B. and Diddy Show.”7.
“Wish You Were Here” by ColdplayFrankly speaking, the first few songs on the first installment of The 100 are pretty standard.
“Somewhere,” the title of Frank Lloyd Woods first track, is “a nice song to have in your car, but you don’t want to drive too far away from your friends.”
“The Big Sleep” is about going to sleep and waking up in a new town and then going to find your friends.
“The Last Time” is “I’m not in love,” Frank says, as he sings about a girl he met on a bus.8.
“Love Shack” by Michael BubléThe rapper and singer’s debut album, My Life in Ruins, was a big hit for the label and it was one of his first big hits.
He was one half in the rap duo, “Bublé,” and the other was his wife, the singer-songwriter, “Missy.”
The album peaked at number four on Billboard’s 200 chart and featured songs by Kendrick Lamar, Kendrick Lamar and Migos.9.
“Walk This Way” by Big SeanThe Drake-assisted song “Walk this Way” is the most popular song on the series, and it has become one of Drake’s signature tracks.
In it, Drake says he’s going for a walk, which he does by walking through a town and asking people to slow down.
He says the only person who will stop is the person who
