This week, a song that is both bitter and sweet. Rancid get three thumbs up for cutting a track 'sung' from the perspective of third Robin, Tim Drake. Perhaps even half a thumb more for the line below pointing out he's lesser known. Only they stumble at the hurdle by using Wolverine as Tim's partner and not Batman. Now I know no continuity rules apply in songs, but hey, there's always room for Batman right? Or at least Grayson.
"I had a dream I was a vigilante sidekick
My name is Tim, I'm a lesser known character
I had a dream I was a vigilante sidekick
Fighting crime in the streets together!"
