You can find every song from “Fargo Season 5” on FX here. As new episodes are released, we will ensure that this list is updated.

Fargo 5×01 “The Tragedy Of The Commons” Songs

“I’ve Seen All Good People” by Yes
“Gloryland” by Ralph Stanley
“Hey Joe” by Charlotte Gainsbourg

Yes song “I’ve Seen All Good People” This prog rock song plays over Fargo’s season 5 opener titles and scenes. Dot is arrested for unintentionally taking a police officer during a municipal fall festival organizing committee skirmish.

“I’ve Seen All Good People” was written by frontman Jon Anderson and bassist Chris Squire for Yes’ third studio album, The Yes Album (1971). The roughly 7-minute song has two parts. “Your Move” was released as a single in 1971 and reached at number 40 in the US, helping the group gain momentum. Part 2 is “All Good People.”

Ralph Stanley, “Gloryland”: This song plays while Dot is arrested and held in a cell. The show’s representation of America as a lawless wasteland where a small-town autumn festival organizing committee can turn violent is paradoxical because the songs present America as a nation of hope and glory.

American bluegrass singer and banjo player Ralph Edmund Stanley (February 25, 1927 – June 23, 2016) had a unique talent. Stanley began performing in 1946 with his older brother Carter Stanley as The Stanley Brothers and later as The Clinch Mountain Boys’ leader. After Carter’s death, Ralph performed as a solo act from 1967 until his 2016 death. The last Clinch Mountain Boys’ lead singer and band leader was his grandson Nathan Stanley.

Charlotte Gainsbourg‘s cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Hey Joe” plays as Dot dreams of Sheriff Tillman. The lyrics describe a man who plots to murder an unfaithful girlfriend. Dot is affiliated with Sheriff Tillman, who wants to find her for betraying him.

French-British actress and singer Charlotte Lucy Gainsbourg was born on July 21, 1971. Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg are her parents. At 12, she made her musical debut with her father on “Lemon Incest” and recorded an album with him at 15.

Fargo Season 5, Episode 2 “Trials And Tribulations” Songs

“Working Man” by Rush
Grand Funk Railroad, “Paranoid”
“This is Halloween” by Marilyn Manson

Rush, “Working Man While Sheriff Tillman smokes and bathes in a large barrel outside, this rock ‘n’ roll classic plays. This song depicts Tillman as an honest, blue-collar working stiff (but he’s actually an iron-fisted tyrant).

Canadian rock band Rush‘s self-titled debut album includes “Working Man”. The Rolling Stone YouTube channel interviewed bassist and lead vocalist Geddy Lee, who revealed that “Working Man” is his favorite song to play live. Rush fans loved “Working Man” and Guitar World picked it for its 100 Greatest Guitar Solos.

Grand Funk Railroad, “Paranoid:” This song plays while Dot and Scotty glue broken glass to a door doorknob and hang a sledgehammer over the front door to create Home Alone-style booby traps. The funny juxtaposition of horrific deathtraps and loving mother-child bonding is enhanced by the groovy soundtrack.

Grand Funk Railroad was founded in 1969 in Flint, Michigan, by Mark Farner (vocals, guitar, keyboards, harmonica), Don Brewer (drums, vocals), and Mel Schacher (bass). The band’s top hits in the 1970s included “We’re an American Band”, “I’m Your Captain (Closer to Home)”, “Some Kind of Wonderful” (a Soul Brothers Six cover), “Walk Like a Man”, and “The Loco-Motion” (a Little Eva cover).

Marilyn Manson, “This is Halloween”: Gator comes into the petrol station where Dot fought Ole Munch as Marilyn Manson covers this eerie Halloween song from The Nightmare Before Christmas. This song reflects Gator’s fearmongering to maintain order. The horror-like scene of Gator finding his companion slain is also built up.

Danny Elfman wrote “This Is Halloween” for The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993). In the film, residents of “Halloween Town” sing it to introduce the town’s Halloween-themed lifestyle.  Lead singer Marilyn Manson and guitarist Daisy Berkowitz founded Marilyn Manson in 1989 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Their dramatic live performances earned them a cult following in South Florida in the early 1990s as Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids.

Unfortunately, the band was erroneously blamed for encouraging the Columbine High School shooting perpetrators in 1999. Band members used to wear outrageous costumes and act shockingly onstage and off. Their lyrics were often criticized for being anti-religious and referencing sex, violence, and drugs, and their live performances were often filthy. At least three US states banned the group from performing at state-owned venues after protests and petitions.
