Musical Heroes: A New York Comic-Con Playlist
Nacho Picasso loves a good Marvel comic.
If things seem a little more heroic around you than usual, it's because today marks the start of the 2012 New York Comic-Con. The NYCC is one of the nation's biggest comic conventions, attracting fans, artists, industry types and celebrities from all over the entertainment world. The lines waiting for autographs and seminars are going to be long, so we've done you the solid of coming with a Super Hero themed playlist to help make the wait a tad easier.
Method Man - "The Riddler" 1995
Thanks to Seal's "Kiss From a Rose," the Batman Forever soundtrack is most likely a part of you or a loved one's music collection. Also on it is a shining piece of mid-90s RZA-produced Wu-Tang greatness, "The Riddler" by Method Man.
Jurassic 5 - "It's Clobberin' Time" 2005
While not making the cut for the official Fantastic Four motion picture soundtrack, neo-old school rap outfit Jurassic 5's "It's Clobberin' Time" found itself a home on the film's officially licensed video game. For more Fantastic Four rap-endeavors, we would like to draw your attention to The Thing's own attempt at rapping from the team's mid-90s cartoon show.
The Flaming Lips - "The Supreme Being Teaches Spider-Man How to Love" 2007
People love to hate the third entry in the Sam Raimi directed Spider-Man franchise, but if one thing can legitimize its existence, it's The Flaming Lips' "The Supreme Being Teaches Spider-Man How to Love." The highlight of the film's soundtrack, it chronicles Muhammad Ali teaching everybody's favorite web-head how to truly love by boxing him. With Spider-Man first debuting in 1962, it's amazing it took this long for such a song to be written.
