So much shit from MF DOOM


"im in love with Mary Jane, shes my main thing, pulled her right from that Webhead, what a lame brain"


Monster Magnet-Melt "I was thinking how the world should have cried. On the day Jack Kirby died. Wonder if I'm ill."
Monster Magnet-Baby Gotterdammerung has some lyrics about MODOK.
Rancid-Sidekick mentions Tim and a lesser know character. Tim Drake-Robin III?

Well, Three Doors Down did "Kryptonite" and it mentioned Superman repeatedly, but fuck if I know what that song is really about....

50 Cent - Patiently Waiting - "swing swords like Conan"

Conan isn't originally a comic character but nowadays he's only a comic character so he counts.

Spiderman, X-men, Penguin, Wonderwoman, etc. 

Funkdoobiest - "Super Hoes"

you got it all wrong. Sidekick by Rancid mentions Wolverine. Tim is the lead singer Tim Armstrong.

"I had a dream I was a vigilant sidekick. My name is Tim. I'm a lesser known character."

Superman's Dead - Our Lady Peace Phone Post

Shit, I swear I was about to do this thread!

Okay...

Psychotron, by Megadeth, is about Deathlok.

But that doesn't really stand for much. Any metal fan will tell you, however, that Holy Wars/The Punishment Due has two sections, and the punishment part is about...

Well, guess who.

Matchbox 20 - Real World

lyrics from there:
I wonder what it's like to be a super hero
I wonder where I'd go if I could fly around downtown
From some other planet, I get this funky high on yellow Sun

Ethan Crane - IN THE GARAGE--Weezer



HAPPY TIME--Daniel Johnston

 Are these Superman also?

 Superman has the most so far, I guess that's not surprising.  Kind of odd you see almost none about Batman, and only a few about Spider-Man.



I like the references to more obscure characters like MODOK and Dethlok.

Wolverine Blues - Entombed

"Bruce Wayne of the game..." - Jay-Z

 Past my shades- B.o.B ft lupe fiasco..

"...and not wonders, Scott Summers/ so don't make me take off my stunners..."

 

Stunners {stun-nas}; Noun; Popular term for sunglasses.

Hell, Ghostface uses the alias Tony Starks, so that's gotta produce something, somewhere.

Guns N Roses Welcome to Jungle-Captain America.
Anthrax I am the Law is about Judge Dredd
