    Is he getting nearer
    I feel some heat is on
    My back

    Speedin’ on the freeway
    Gotta get a leadway
    (Speed demon)
    Doin’ it on the highway
    Gotta have it my way
    (Speed demon)
    Mind is like a compass
    I’m stoppin’ at nothin’
    (Speed demon)
    (He say) pull over boy and
    Get your ticket right . . .

    And nothin’ gonna stop me
    Ain’t no stop and go
    I’m speedin’ on the midway
    I gotta really burn this road

    (Speed demon)
    Speedin’ on the freeway
    Gotta get the leadway
    (Speed demon)
    Doin’ it on the highway
    Gotta have it my way
    (Speed demon)
    Mind is like a compass
    I’m stoppin’ at nothin’
    (Speed demon)
    (He say) pull over boy and
    Get your ticket right . . .

    Speed Demon, you’re the
    Very same one
    Who said the future’s in
    Your hands
    The life you save could be
    Your own
    You’re preachin’ ‘bout my
    Life like you’re the law
    Gonna live each day and
    Hour like
    For me there’s no tomorrow

    Go! Go! Go! Aaow!

    (Speed demon)
    Speedin’ on the freeway
    Gotta get a leadway
    (Speed demon)
    Got fire in my pocket
    I just lit a rocket
    (Speed demon)
    Just pull over boy
    And get your ticket right
    (Speed demon)
    Pull over boy and
    Get your ticket right
    (Speed demon)
    Just, pull over boy
    And eat your ticket
    Pull over boy
    Pull over boy
    And get your ticket right
    Ugh!
    Aaow!
    Uhh!

    Sean Finnerty: Oh, oh, did somebody say...

    ..."IRON MAN"!?

    Has he lost his mind?
    Can he see or is he blind?
    Can he walk at all,
    Or if he moves will he fall?
    Is he alive or dead?
    Has he thoughts within his head?
    We'll just pass him there
    why should we even care?

    He was turned to steel
    in the great magnetic field
    When he travelled time
    for the future of mankind

    Nobody wants him
    He just stares at the world
    Planning his vengeance
    that he will soon unfurl

    Now the time is here
    for Iron Man to spread fear
    Vengeance from the grave
    Kills the people he once saved

    Nobody wants him
    They just turn their heads
    Nobody helps him
    Now he has his revenge

    Heavy boots of lead
    fills his victims full of dread
    Running as fast as they can
    Iron Man lives again!

    For some reason I think Black Sabbath's Iron Man suits Kang more.

    Picture yourself in a boat on a river
    With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
    Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
    A girl with kaleidoscope eyes

    Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
    Towering over your head
    Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes
    And she's gone

    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Aaaaahhhhh...

    Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
    Where rocking horse people eat marshmellow pies
    Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers
    That grow so incredibly high

    Newpaper taxis appear on the shore
    Waiting to take you away
    Climb in the back with your head in the clouds
    And you're gone

    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Aaaaahhhhh...

    Picture yourself on a train in a station
    With plasticine porters with looking glass ties
    Suddenly someone is there at the turnstyle
    The girl with the kaleidoscope eyes

    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Aaaaahhhhh...
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Aaaaahhhhh...
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds
    Lucy in the sky with diamonds

    Marvel's Iron Man first appeared in 1963, Black Sabbath's song Iron Man is from their 1971 album Paranoid. The Black Sabbath song is also not based on the comicbook character, but inspired by the british book The Iron Man written by Ted Hughes in 1968. That book is also the basis for the 1999 cartoon, The Iron Giant.

    You could say that in about seventy-five percent of all threads on this site and the saying would still apply.

    just because there are songs named those things doesn't mean the comic chartacters are named after the songs

    I mean, seriously, do you think Holocaust was named after the song, or the event?

    I like a tombstone cause it
    weathers well
    and if it stands or if it crumbles
    only time will tell

    if you carve my name in marble
    you must cut it deep
    there'll be no dancing on the gravestone
    you must let me sleep
    and time is burning burning burning
    it burns away

    I don't need to see the gates of
    famous men
    but I do try to see the kingdom
    every now and then

    if you ask me where it is it's on a
    humble map
    and I know that to enter in the doorway
    show your handicap
    and time is burning burning burning
    it burns away

    When I woke up today I was dizzy in my brain
    It's not that I like to feel this way
    The wagon's shaking and I feel it start to tilt
    And I just go tumbling right back in the whirlwind
    And I find myself again

    I cannot seem to hold on to a ****ing thought
    This whirlwind's got me and I'm racing out the door
    It's alright for a while but when I try to focus
    All my convictions come crashing down around me again
    Sneaking up behind me when I ain't lookin'

    Stare out my window, I smella sour mist come in
    It hovers around this house like some sort of doom and cloud

    I cannot seem to put my thoughts within a line
    The whirlwind breaks it up likedust within a storm
    When it rains it pours until we haven't got no more
    And I just go tumbling right back into the whirlwind again

    It's been a week now, and I haven't seen daylight
    And all my friends are tired of worrying about me
    At my feet the wagon's in a million pieces
    Gotta find the strength to build it back up again

    I cannot seem to put my thoughts within a line
    This whirlwind breaks it up like dust within a storm
    When it rains it pours until we haven't got no more
    And I just go tumbling right back in the whirlwind again

    When I woke up today I was dizzy in my head
    It's not that I like to feel this way
    The wagon's shaking and Ifeel it start to tilt
    And all of my convictionscome crashing down around me again
    And I find myself at the end

    Your eyes are almost dead
    can't get out of bed
    And you can't sleep

    You're sitting down to dress
    and you're a mess
    You look in the mirror

    You look in your eyes
    Then you realize

    Everybody goes
    leaving those
    who fall behind

    Everybody goes
    as far as they can
    They don't just care

    They stood on the stairs
    Laughing at your airs

    Your mother's dead
    She said
    "Don't be afraid"

    Your mother's dead
    You're on your own
    She's in her bed

    Everybody goes
    Leaving those
    Who fall behind

    Everybody goes
    As far as they can
    They don't just care

    You're a wasted face
    you're a sad-eyed lie
    You're a holocaust

    While I was walking down the beach one bright and sunny day
    I saw a great big wooden box a-floatin’ in the bay
    I pulled it in and opened it up and much to my surprise
    Ooh, I discovered a boom-boom-boom, right before my eyes
    Oh, I discovered a boom-boom-boom, right before my eyes

    I picked it up and ran to town as happy as a king
    I took it to a guy I knew who’d buy most any thing
    But this is what he hollered at me as I walked in his shop
    Oh, get outta here with that boom-boom-boom, before I call a cop
    Oh, get outta here with that boom-boom-boom before I call a cop

    I turned around and got right out, a-runnin’ for my life
    And than I took it home with me to give it to my wife
    But this is what she hollered at me as I walked in the door
    Oh, get outta here with that boom-boom-boom, and don’t come back no more
    Oh, get outta here with that boom-boom-boom, and don’t come back no more

    I wandered all around the town until I chanced to meet
    A hobo who was looking for a hand-out on the street
    He said he’d take most any old thing, he was a desperate man
    But when I showed him the boom-boom-boom, he turned around and ran
    Oh, when I showed him the boom-boom-boom, he turned around and ran

    I wandered on for many years, a victim of my fate
    Until one day I came upon St. Peter at the gate
    And when I tried to take it inside, he told me where to go
    Get outta here with that boom-boom-boom and take it down below
    Oh, get outta here with that boom-boom-boom and take it down below

    The moral of this story is if you’re out on the beach
    And you should see a great big box and it’s within your reach
    Don’t ever stop and open it up, that’s my advice to you
    ‘Cause you’ll never get rid of the boom-boom-boom, no matter what you do
    Oh, you’ll never get rid of the boom-boom-boom, no matter what you do

    This song does not have the name of any Marvel Character in it, but every time I hear it I picture Storm singing about T'challa.

    [​IMG]
    I was five and he was six
    We rode on horses made of sticks
    He wore black and I wore white
    He would always win the fight

    Bang bang, he shot me down
    Bang bang, I hit the ground
    Bang bang, that awful sound
    Bang bang, my baby shot me down.

    Seasons came and changed the time
    When I grew up, I called him mine
    He would always laugh and say
    "Remember when we used to play?"

    Bang bang, I shot you down
    Bang bang, you hit the ground
    Bang bang, that awful sound
    Bang bang, I used to shoot you down.

    Music played, and people sang
    Just for me, the church bells rang.

    Now he's gone, I don't know why
    And till this day, sometimes I cry
    He didn't even say goodbye
    He didn't take the time to lie.

    Bang bang, he shot me down
    Bang bang, I hit the ground
    Bang bang, that awful sound
    Bang bang, my baby shot me down...

    Nobody mentioned the song "Wolverine Blues" and yes it is refrencing Wolverine from the X-Men, he's all over the music video for it. It was on Beavis and Butthead.

    Instead of songs that remind you, or share a name with Marvel characters, how about songs that actually mention them by name?

    'X' by X-Zibit: "N*gg*s is weak, I'm concrete like Benjamin Grimm."

    'Mutant X' by Twiztid: "See me for all that I am, and all that I do; the Multiple Man, appearin' in multiples of two." Also note that the singer goes by the alias 'Jamie Madrox'

    Wow,there are so many Marvel references when it comes to hip-hop.

    Biggie from "Let Me Get Down":"Stretchin' n****z like Mr.Fantastic."

    P Diddy from "Let's Get It":"Got y'all Hulkin' like Bruce did."

    Rza from "NYC Everything":"Rhyme star, I write a hundred thousand dollar bar
    My pinstripe comma deletes your power bar
    Dr. Octopus tentacles, same as different song
    Bob Digital instrumental, nothing's indentitcal."

    Members of the Wu-Tang Clan have probably been the most vocal about their love of Marvel comics.Ghostface goes by the alias Tony Stark while Method Man goes by Johnny Blaze.On top of that,they also endorsed Johnny Blaze NY's Marvel clothing collection.
