THE COMICS' BEAT: V For Vendetta In Pop Will Eat Itself's 'Can U Dig It?'

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 Pop Will Eat Itself's Can U Dig It? A song that not only sings about liking both Marvel and DC, Optimus Prime not Galvatron, Bruce Wayne and writer Alan Moore, but also a song that name drops the latter's political thriller, V For Vendetta.

"Spinderella and Bruce Lee, "The Bad and the Ugly",
"V for Vendetta" and "Into the Groovy"."

The video even features comics classics like Batman: The Killing Joke and Watchmen, just hit play and see;

  1. I dig that! I honestly can't believe I've never heard that before. It's right up my alley. Thanks Dan-o. Between this and that comics a-z Dave was sending out my day is geek music heavy today.

  2. Ouch that loud noise! Its my birthday today [the 30th Sept] and my poor ears are still ringing from the din of listening to it[!] V For Vendetta? Yep I feel like a vendetta, no problem!

  3. Thanks Random - that vid Dave found is really clever isn't it! He sent it to me by email and it's being playing in my head all night!

    Karl - it's already October here, but happy birthday mate! Hope you are having a great day! Sorry the song wasn't to your liking but this mornings post is based on the DC news the Wonder Woman of the 31st century is leading the new Legion series on their quest for piece. Their first opponent - four cosmic ray powered people from our time - it sounds like a series just for you! :)

  4. I didn't notice "music" or "Alan Moore" in your labels cloud below, so I don't know if you've already mentioned this here, but "V For Vendetta" has had a full-length EP devoted to it back in the 80's with Moore and Lloyd's participation. The notes from the 2006 CD issue are here:

  5. Thanks PBL - there sure are a few V inspired acts out there. And why shouldn't there be, it's a great book. cheers for the comments mate!
