This Week’s Theme: The Spectre

Our season of scary mixtapes continues this week with one of the most frightening figures in all the Multiverse, the Spectre! What songs do you think would be his favorite, assuming he cares about anything other than enacting God’s justice? Share your picks with us, below!

I’ll start things off with two excellent versions of this song that seems like it could’ve been written specifically for the Spectre:

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:

Hey @Green.Lantern, I’d pick a James Bond song opening from the movie ‘Spectre.’ :slightly_smiling_face:


2 very different songs…


“God is Gonna Cut You Down” may be the perfect song for The Spectre!

My first song is “This Dying Soul” by Dream Theatre, which kind of sums up the tragic side of Jim Corrigan for me.

And I think the attitude in this song kind of sums up The Spectre. “You’ve Got Another Thing Coming” by Judas Priest


How about this one, an oldie but a goodie?


The first one is this song. Which describes those who destroy peoples lives and themselves with their transgressions. Read the lyrics carefully. It also describes the evilness inside of people. “I see their (eyeless) smile.”

And the second is about another spirit of vengeance, the Shadow.



Gods gonna cut you down is perfect but I think this one works as well


I think it’s safe to say this will probably be one of the angrier mixtapes. :smiley:


I switched out “Trouble” for “Highway to Hell”. Definitely a better fit!


This is a character I have NO clue about, I kinda did some quick research on him and came up with this? So probably just one from me this week:

“The Time Bender”, by Becoming The Archetype


i’m going to have to think about this but off the top of my head (behind Johnny Cash :laughing:)


Would love to see this as a series or a full length feature film.

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Spectre knows!


Well hello there G.L. and everyone else. :wave: :sunglasses:

Ah, The Spectre. Perhaps these tunes might be some The Spectre listens to before seeking out vengeance. :ghost:


If we’re going with Hal’s take on The Spectre. . .

Hurt by Johnny Cash
Personality Crisis by The New York Dolls

idk this one is hard


Still remember when Undertaker came with his Johnny Cash entrance.:fire::smiling_imp::headstone:



Absolutely love that, as:

  • DC published The Shadow comics long ago.

  • The Shadow is a wonderful movie.


Hopefully self-explanatory lol… :point_up_2:

Such an amazing song & perfect for The Spectre & Halloween :jack_o_lantern:….


Ok so I can’t quote it for some reason, but “Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story” is absolutely perfect for this!!! Nicely chosen @NinjaSupes!
