Welcome back to Mixtape Monday, where we bring you soundtracks inspired by your favorite comic book characters.
This Week’s Theme: Static Shock
Hello, music lovers and superhero aficionados! It’s time to kick-start a brand-new week with Mixtape Monday, supercharged and electrified. Today, we’re zooming in on the youthful energy and magnetic charisma of one of the coolest heroes from the DC Universe, Virgil Hawkins aka Static Shock. Let’s spark the rhythm with this charged-up playlist that embodies Static’s vibe.
Just to make many of you feel old as well as post an appropriate song for the playlist:
Struck By Lightning - Stray Cats
I saw this and immediately thought we were making a playlist specifically for @staticshocks the moderator
And it’s because of that I’m dropping this track off to the most Kenough mod in the community.
This is for you @staticshocks
It was tempting to post another “electricity” themed song, but something tells me Static is a Gorillaz fan.
Static Shock is one of my favorite superheroes who’s not a Legionnaire
Having watched the Static Shock TV series, I really liked how the show dealt with mature themes once in a while. I found the song “Heroes” by Superchick to be one fitting example. And thanks to one internetter, there just so happens to be this:
Of course, we can’t celebrate Static Shock without an honorable mention to the Static Shock theme song, but it has two versions and I don’t want to post just one.
Hey @Stoic_Jester, love this week theme music, @staticshocks, this is for you, hope you enjoy my two song pick for Static Shock.
I. LOVE IT.
Now this gives me an idea …
As a huge Gorillaz fan myself (got 3 albums hanging right above my desk here), that’s a solid headcanon for him that I totally approve of.
Great stuff!! Thanks for the tag! Something to start my morning off right to~
Also great Beastie Boys pick @raider_dave66 ! THAT album is above MY desk!
