“Carry on my wayward son. There’ll be peace when you are done. Lay your weary head to rest. Don’t you cry no more…”

Legendary classic rock band KANSAS made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con: International San Diego introducing Supernatural’s packed Hall H panel on Sunday with an epic performance of their legendary single “Carry On Wayward Son,” which serves as the de facto theme song for the Winchester Brothers and Supernatural fans worldwide.

  • Supernatural’s annual Comic-Con panel in Hall H started with a custom video recorded by stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as their characters, Sam and Dean Winchester. The humorous tribute to Supernatural fans was immediately followed by a surprise live performance by KANSAS, accompanied by a 12-season video retrospective of the hit show projected on giant, high-resolution screens surrounding the perimeter of the massive hall. Once the band finished their iconic song, panel moderators (and recurring fan-favorite Supernatural guest stars) Rob Benedict and Richard Speight Jr. took the stage to introduce series stars Ackles, Padalecki and Misha Collins, along with executive producers Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb.
  • First used by Supernatural in the opening montage of the season one finale in 2006, “Carry On Wayward Son” has since been used in every season finale episode that depicts “The Road So Far” (i.e. the Winchesters’ wayward journey). The song was also used as the centerpiece of the series’ 200th episode (in which an all-girls high school performs “Supernatural: The Musical!”).
  • A vintage live concert performance of the band’s 1976 song can be found here: http://vevo.ly/SmBjRU
