Breaking Bad: Funeral Songs for Walt and His Family

Categories: Film and TV

Walt Jr.
Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son"

"Like I don't have enough on my plate, Dad. Not only am I handicapped, but I also have to find out my dad is a liar and a killer and a bad guy. I bet those pancakes you made for me weren't even made from scratch. You probably made them from a mix. You can't buy my forgiveness. Not me, I ain't your fortunate son."

Walter White
They Might Be Giants' "Boss of Me"

Yes, the lyrics apply well to Walter's sensitivity toward any slights intended or perceived. But this song also fits nicely with the theory that Breaking Bad is just a prequel for the show with which actor Bryan Cranston originally found fame, Malcolm in the Middle. After getting away with murder and surviving cancer, Walter starts a new identity in suburbia, where he stays on the straight and narrow and leaves the trouble to Malcolm.
