The True Story of the Hero of Canton is here!!

Every good Browncoat knows that classic folk song, The Hero of Canton. But as we learned in the Jaynestown episode, the song didn't quite tell the full story of what happened to Jayne Cobb and his partner Stitch on that fateful day in Canton. So we figured it was time you heard both sides of the story!  

Our goal with The True Story of the Hero of Canton was to do justice to Ben Edlund's original version while also weaving in new lyrics to tell the darker truth of the situation. This really shines through towards the end of the video when the fight between Jayne and Stitch is intercut with flashbacks to Jayne's heroic homecoming. Sometimes being a big damn hero isn't all it's cracked up to be.

We've been looking forward to sharing this song with you for a long time, so we hope you enjoy it!
