THE COMICS' BEAT: Human Torch In The Dead Milkmen's "If You Love Somebody, Set Them on Fire"

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. In The Comics' Beat, I chuck up a musical hit saluting comics' best.

This week, because having no monthly Fantastic Four comic is a pretty harsh cardinal sin, so I wanted to track down a number starring the team's resident hothead, Johnny Storm.

For the album Metaphysical Graffiti, the Dead Milkmen offer such a ditty with  the aptly named If You Love Somebody, Set Them on Fire.   
"Your dad called me the Human Torch"


  1. Hell yeah! Now there's something I can get behind. "If you love someone, set them on fire." Damn if that isn't one the best lines I've heard yet. Thanks for posting one of my new favorite lines of 2016. Right the fuck on!

  2. Thanks Dale - all I could find going through the archive were Bat or Super related - thankfully though the FF saved the day - as all good FF's do!
