Super songs

For some random reason, I woke up this morning thinking Doctor Octopus’ theme song should be “Crazy Arms”.

No, I do not understand how my brain works.

But it started me wondering what other songs would go well with established super-heroes. But pre-coffee, I can’t think of any. Which is where you come in. Are there other songs that go perfectly with a comics character? Let ‘em rip in the comments!

  1. “Thor” by Rebellion, I think, perfectly fits for Thor. Somehow the song “Phantom” by Valeriy Meladze (I’m sure you don’t know him) is associating with Batman. “Kalmageddon” by Lordi goes great for Mordru.

  2. Thor ( The Powerhead ) By Manowar is a good Thor Theme Song

  3. Nick Hentschel

    Superman could use, “Right Through You,” by Alanis Morrisette (“I see right through you…”), for obvious reasons. ;-)

  4. “Eye of the Tiger” for Black Panther

  5. Oh, Oh, I remember one more! “Flight of the warrior” for Shining Knight (DC) and maybe for Superman

  6. Shinedown-45, For Spiderman/ Wolverine, it would work great for both

  7. For Spiderman (and possibly members of Hydra), ‘I don’t Like Spiders and Snakes’.

  8. Faster Kill Pussycat by Paul Oakenfold ft. Brittany Murphy for Black Cat. Or Catwoman. They’re almost the same character anyway.

  9. The Doomed Pixel

    “How You Like me Now” by the Heavy for The Punisher, perhaps?

  10. I’ll have more time tomorrow to post. I have thousands of songs. And I am taking requests. I can think of songs but no superheroes or villains!

    Did I also mention I hate YouTubes “memory leaks” that cause the video to play all choppy.

    Couple of songs written specifically about Judge Dredd:
    I am the Law by Anthrax

    Mega-City 1 by The Screaming Blue Messiahs (One of my favorite bands of all time)

    Nightcrawler:
    Ziga Zaga Polka by the Kallender Band
    http://new.music.yahoo.com/kallender-band/tracks/ziga-zaga-polka–179711239

    Gambit:
    Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man by The Bob Seger System

    The Baroness (G.I.Joe):
    Küss Mich by In Extremo

    Thor (or even the Asgardians):
    Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin

    The Atomic Punk:
    The Atomic Punk by Van Halen!

  11. I’m gonna go with the painfully obvious that are already
    based on Comic Characters.

    SUPERMAN:

    R.E.M = I am Superman
    Crash Test Dummies = Superman Song
    3 doors down = kryptonite

    Others:

    GHOST RIDER – Henry Rollins Band – Ghostrider
    SILVER SURFER – Joe Satriani = Surfin with the Alien

    That’s just off the top of my head, I’m sure there are more………….

  12. this requires a little thought but Batman “Carry on my Wayward Son” by good ol’ Kansas

  13. Eryke (10) – Working on that note:

    IRON MAN – Black Sabbath – Iron Man
    HUMAN TORCH – Prodigy – Fire Starter

  14. Myro (12): Actually that was going the painfully obvious route. Songs based on actual comic book characters, however, you could throw in Powerman 5000’s song “Son of X-51″ for Machine Man.

  15. You might have already but you guys should listen to kansas and see exactly what im talking about.

  16. Do you mean Ghost Riders In the Sky?

  17. @ Eryke #10- I forgot about CTD! One of my favorite bands too.

  18. @ Wade #15- they did use that dong in the Nick Cage movie, I wish I could remember the name of the group who did it.

  19. For Catwoman (and Black Cat and Hellcat and Tigra)-
    Year of the Cat
    Killer Queen (the line “Faithful as a pussycat” comes to mind)
    Cat Scratch Fever

    For Medusa
    Hair

    For Storm
    It’s Raining Men
    The Thunder Rolls

  20. Phatchick #17 – It’s Spiderbait (Ghost Riders in the sky). Not sure if I spelled this correctly, though. Maybe it was Spiderbite.

  21. Ooh, one more! “Lament for a toy factory” by Dr. Steel goes perfectly for Toyman!

  22. Not sure about Spidey…definitely something pop punk…

    And definitely “Game On” by Disciple for Wolverine. Or Hulk, take your pick.

  23. William A. Peterson

    Wade, that one might go well for the original (pre-Motorcycle, Old West) Ghost Rider…
    Me, every time I hear “Time after Time”, I think of Lois and Clark… {“If you fall, I will catch, I’ll be there waiting…”}

  24. Hopefully the next Judge Dredd movie soundtrack will feature “I Am the Law” by Anthrax (huge Dredd fans, btw)

  25. Squirrel Girl:
    Passion by Jewelry

    Supergirl:
    Bulletproof by La Roux

    Dr. Who:
    Do It Again by The Kinks

    Sandman:
    Atmosphere by Joy Division

    Beast Boy:
    Where’s Your Head At by Basement Jaxx

    Nick Fury:
    Old Hippie by The Bellamy Brothers

    Demon (Etrigan):
    The Ghost in You by Psychedelic Furs

    Lobo:
    Concrete Jungle by Black Label Society

    * Awesome video, too

    Booster Gold:
    Glamour Boys by Living Coulour

    * Burnin’ Vernon!

    Harley Quinn:
    Crazy Chick by Charlotte Church

    The Clone Troopers:
    March of Cambreadth by Heather Alexander

    * Yes, this video features Clone Troopers

    Mr. Freeze:
    Coldshot by Stevie Ray Vaughan

    General Zod:
    When the Generals Talk by Midnight Oil

  26. Actually, Stevie Ray’s “Coldshot” would be more apt for Captain Cold. My bad.

  27. Tarzan, Black Panther, Catman, all of the talking apes, Animal Man, Beastboy, Cheeta and Vixen. “In the jungle”

  28. Nick Hentschel

    If you want to give Catwoman a soundtrack, the choice is obvious: “Stray Cat Strut.”

  29. Nick Hentschel

    Oh, yes, and “Octopus’s Garden” for Aquaman. ;-)
