Playlist: The Best Superhero Songs

By Haley Shipley ’17

2016 seems to be the year of the comic book superhero. Between watching Captain America and Iron Man battle it out, to seeing Superman and Batman not battle it out, heroes are everywhere. We can also watch Netflix and the CW fight over which company can make the best TV universe. But with Suicide Squad leaving theaters soon, we’re stuck in a dead zone of superhero media until our favorite shows start up in October.

So instead of watching Daredevil on Netflix (again) while you wait for something new to come out, check out some of these superhero inspired tracks!

If you’re really into that last track, then you’re in luck. It’s a part of a Spider-Man rock opera called Spider-Man: Rock Reflections of a Superhero.
