THE COMICS' BEAT: Captain America In Guns N' Roses' 'Paradise City'

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 one of the biggest comic beats of all; Captain America in Guns N' Roses' Paradise City. And why wouldn't it be? His girls are always pretty and he's fighting for a world where the grass is always green. It's a perfect match! 

"Captain America's been torn apart. Now he's a court jester with a broken heart"

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


  1. can't believe i never caught that given how much this song has been over played over the past 15 years. i still remember when Appetite for Destruction first came out ( i was in junior high) the Welcome to The Jungle video just blew everybody away that was one of the best rock albums of all time. it's too bad axel rose turned out to be such an asshole.

  2. Thanks guys! When I was young I wanted to rip all my jeans like Axel. When GnR did the Terminator 2 song, I was in fanboy heaven. A Cap reference now Arnie? Nothing was cooler.

    Glad you both liked it.

  3. After decades of loving both Captain America and Paradise City, I have realized that the song mentions Cap! How cool!

    1. Thanks for that John - glad you liked it!
