This Week’s Theme: Darkseid

This week, we’re creating a playlist for one of the most powerful and evil beings in all the Multiverse-Darkseid! What songs do you think we would listen to, assuming he listens to anything other than the screams of his subjects on Apokolips? Share your picks with us, below!

I’ll start things off with an earworm that I guarantee Darkseid would embed the the Anti-Life Equation in:

And another more serious song that I do think fits him very well:

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!

I usually think of Scarecrow from Batman Begins, but I think this song is perfect for Darkseid as well. :slightly_smiling_face:

This song would probably be one that would signal what a world ruled over by Darkseid would be like:

well i have to start with Darkseid’s favorite song, which inspired “Darkseid is.”

and Darkseid sounds like industrial in my head

darkseidwhyyou

if profanity wasn’t a problem:

Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums by A Perfect Circle

Crowd Control by Excision (Excision basically IS Darkseid)

I mean … it’s campy, but on point.

And while I completely agree with @biff_pow that Darkseid is always industrial AF bootstomping, I’ve got to include some Soft Boys…

And a few more for good measure:

No one’s suggested this yet? On the Dark Side by Eddie and the Cruisers.

and for some reason O fortuna from Carmina Burana by Orff seems appropriate to me. I remember all the movie trailers around 1990 with the song to build tension.

This is shaping up to be a great playlist! I’m a little disappointed in myself that Dark Side of the Moon didn’t even cross my mind. :stuck_out_tongue:

Perhaps “Viva La Vida” by Coldplay could fit him?
