    Some of my personal favorites:

    "The Ballad of Barry Allen," by Jim's Big Ego

    (So, the Flash is fun and goofy and not tragic in any way, right?)

    and

    "Ring Capacity," by Kirby Krackle

    I know, I know, Green Lantern gets a lot of hate these days for a lot of reasons, but it's hard to care, or even remember, that while listening to this.

    Franz Nicolay (ex-WORLD/INFERNO FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY and ex-THE HOLD STEADY) wrote a song about Watchmen.



    (Edited to add an "ex-" prefix to THE HOLD STEADY.)

    Well, howzabout MUTANTS IN MEGA-CITY ONE by the Fink Brothers (aka Suggsy and Chas Smash of Madness):


    (Still have the EP and its lovely Brian Bolland jacket, but it's long been warped into unplayability.)

    Four Colour Love Story by The Metasciences.

    Oh, and I just remembered, Eddie Argos of Art Brut fronted a fun side project - Spoiler Alert! - which did songs about Batman, Booster Gold and Blue Beetle. Can't find playable links to any of those though.

    Oh and, and, and, Adam WarRock, who did a whole effing mixtape based on the West Coast Avengers.

    "Face It, Tiger (You Just Hit the Jackpot)" by my old band, the Roland High Life. I wrote this one about a girl I dated freshman year of college, and I still attest that it's the only song to quote Stan Lee, Shakespeare, and Lord Byron. Booyah.
