THE COMICS' BEAT: The DC Universe In Art Brut's 'DC Comics and Chocolate Milkshake'

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 DC. More specifically, a song written about a 28 year-old with Peter Pan syndrome, who doesn't care if he can get a credit card, as long as he can afford DC Comics and a chocolate milkshake. No, it's not my autobiography. Here's the chorus:

DC comics and chocolate milkshake, some things will always be great.
DC comics and chocolate milkshake, even though I'm 28.
DC comics and chocolate milkshake, I guess I'm just developing late.
DC comics and chocolate milkshake, I never got over that amazing taste.

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


  1. I've personally never combined those two, but hell of a title for a song. Now that's a fan.
    Funny find Dan.

  2. Thanks Dale - glad you liked - I've never combined them either - think of the stain :)

  3. Ha! The big brown stain maybe;)
