Avengers Week Post #6: Music And Ironman
Ironman loves rocking out to great music, so it is only fitting that he have some songs to honor his heroism. Below is a list of songs I have found that mention or are themed after him. If there are any others, please comment below.
Ironman (by Black Sabbath): Although this wasn’t written about the character, fans around the world constantly mention this song in referring to Ironman. Then suddenly, it was featured in the first Ironman movie. Now it is a staple. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LjbMVXj0F8
Prelude 970519 (by Pete Townshend): The album itself is called “Iron Man.” Kind of a wierd one, but I love Townshend’s stuff, so here it is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9P6X_eeGEE
Who’s The One (By Winger): Wow, this band takes me back. There is only one line in here that mentions him, but the name is capitalized in the print version, meaning it is talking about an Ironman. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jPsU4DkjSs
Ironman (by Ghostface Killa): This is the title of his debut solo album, and while it may seem at first that this has nothing to do with the character, the rapper voiced a villain in the Ironman animated series. This album was done in tribute to Tony Stark and his alter ego. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2iTkwxh5xcY
Theme Song From Ironman short (in The Marvel SuperHeroes): This animated hour consisted of many different characters, and Ironman got his own few episodes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-Lx9eEox2A
Ironman Theme Song (From Marvel Action Hour): This was a great cartoon in the 1990s. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=go3PEcZKLI4
Ironman Armored Adventures Theme Song: A CGI animated series in the 2000’s. It was a fresh take on the character and portrayed him as a teenager. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxzDTt0RT7U
Ironman Anime Theme Song: Even Japan did their Ironman story in animation, and it is probably one of my favorite Ironman incarnations. Check out the series if you get a chance. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzOmdkqYO9w
The Invincible Ironman Theme Song: I have no idea how Lionsgate films didn’t have them take this down, but the entire animated movie is up on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-GCB5pLhfk
There you have it folks. There were a few other mentions I found during searches, but they didn’t seem relevant enough to include. Ironman (Tony Stark) is played by Robert Downey Jr in The Avengers movie.
