THE COMICS' BEAT: Ghost Rider In Suicide's 'Ghost Rider'
Mondays. They are worse than Dr Doom and after a heavy one, it can be a little hard to get the drum pumping again for the week ahead. As a former DJ, each Monday I dig into my collection, and chuck up a hit nodding to comics' best.
This week, it's Suicide with Ghost Rider. Vocalist Alan Vega's favourite comic, the band name is even taken from a G.R. tale entitled 'Satan Suicide'. This song itself was also later covered by both the Rollins Band and R.E.M.
"Ghost Rider motorcycle hero, Bebebebebebebe he's a-screaming the truth, America, America is killing its youth."
