THE COMICS' BEAT: Dr Doom In 13th Floor Elevators' 'Dear Dr Doom'

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 about time after using that intro for so many posts now, I actually spotlighted a song plugging comics greatest dictator; Dr Doom. It's a bit of fried rock, but that never hurt no one, and lead guitarist and singer Roky Erickson's voice definitely sets the era.

"Dear Doctor Doom? I read your recent letter. You left so soon? I hope you're feeling better!"

 What do you think?  Full lyrics are here. Be back here next Monday for another Comic Beat!


  1. ah Doctor Doom...these guys ougta be careful singing a song with him in its lyrics, they may end up in one of his dungeons!

  2. Ha! You have a point Karl. I have way more Dr Doom material than I have songs on Luthor or Joker. Guess that really proves who is #1 huh?
