This Week’s Theme: Dark Knights of Steel

This week’s mixtape is for one of my new favorite series that just had two issues hit DCUI last week, Dark Knights of Steel! What songs do you think belong on the ultimate playlist for this great DC fantasy series? Let us know your picks, below!

I’ll start things off with this, since the comic definitely reminds me of the show:

Due to the high volume of submissions and the limited number of hours in a day, we’ll be selecting two songs from each member, but feel free to share as many as you like!

:headphones: Curious what Mixtape Monday is? :headphones:
Every week, we’ll post the title of our latest Mixtape, and you post tracks of your choice in the comments below! We’ll follow up next Mixtape Monday with the list of tunes, two from each user, collected from the week before. And if our “What’s the Last Song You Heard?” thread is any indication, you all have superb taste in tunes!

For our hardcore music lovers, we suggest joining Inky’s Mixtape Mob , a group created to bring all music lovers together in one place. Joining Inky’s Mixtape Mob will make sure you get notified of every playlist update, as well as offer you a custom flair and title to show off your maestro-dom!

While lyrics must abide to Forum Guidelines , the songs can be anything, of any genre, as long as it meets each week’s theme!


I was sort of going for that medieval vibe with No Quarter- Led Zeppelin


Hello there G.L., and everyone else. :wave: :clark_hv_4:

On one hand… You have this… :sunglasses: :metal:

On the other hand… Well… This. :rofl:


Seems like a good direction to go.


What could be more Metal than:

O Fortuna/Carmina Burana - Carl Orff

Excalibur is a fantastically Metal movie. I highly recommend it if you can stand violence and some sex.

Conan The Barbarian Main Theme/Anvil Of Crom - Basil Poledouris

Conan The Barbarian is also highly recommended with the same warning above.


“Dragonborn”, by Jeremy Soule

“Battlefield”, by Blind Guardian

I’d raise you this cover @Killing_Joke69

And long time no see @ajm08g ! Good to see you back on MTM!


Okay, Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” is about Vikings, but I think it fits…

For my second song, short of Hawkwind, I don’t think there was ever a more medieval fantasy type band than Manowar…

Anyway, I think this will be another Mixtape Monday dominated by heavy metal…


And this,

Yeah… :metal: :smiling_imp: I thought about Achillies Last Stand and Heaven and Hell but went this way with my other choice.


Can’t really have a medieval playlist without this:

And there’s never a bad time for Iron Maiden…


Hello @Green.Lantern,
Hope you’re doing well, here’s my two pick from one of my favorite animated movie from Warner Brothers ‘Quest For Camelot’ soundtrack, I think it’s a great songs theme for Dark Knight Of Steel. :grinning:


This is shaping up to be a nice list already, which I’m happy about since this is one of my favorite recent series.
Hi @Reaganfan78! I’m good, thanks! I forgot all about that movie, I always wanted to see it and should watch it soon.


A few different versions of the same song:


Since Dinah (Black Canary) is a banshee in this series:

And in keeping with the medieval fantasy theme:


Greetings Mix Mob! :notes: :dancer:t2: :inkys_mixtape_mob2: Great picks, as always! I’ve enjoyed this series, so here’s what I brought! :crossed_swords: :rose: :00_wonder_woman_gold:

Can’t not drop this first piece. It’s epic and beautiful, but also totally the :metal: metal of classical music. :purple_heart: Plz enjoy and have a great week, everybody!

Dance of the Knights- London Symphony Orchestra

In the Night of Wilderness- Blackmill


Good to see you as well LDFM. :clark_hv_4:

There are two deadlines coming up soon at the Daily Planet so it’s good to be back and detox from it here again when I can sneak in. ajm08g looks around to make sure Perry does not see this. :sweat_smile: :eyes:


I’m just throwing this in! :grin:


As far as prophecies of doom go…
