Any songs that you associate with a specific DC character?

Whenever I hear Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes I can’t help but think of John Constantine throughout the entire piece. Do you associate any songs with any DC characters?

Rob Zombie’s Dragula is remniscent of Lobo. It comes to mind when I see montages of him being The Main Man in various books.

Creature Lives by Mastodon always made me think of the Swamp Thing.
Brann Dailor even wrote the Red Death for the Dark Nights Metal soundtrack.

Long Cool Woman In a Black Dress by The Hollies always makes me think of Selina. There’s even a line “I saw her headin’ to the table, well, a tall walking big black cat…”
Also Gogol Bordello’s Start Wearing Purple (though noted by others) DEFINITELY sounds like theme for the Joker. The chorus includes the line “Well your sanity and wits they will all vanish, I promise. It’s just a matter of time!”

I have a playlist I created long ago with a song for nearly every DC villain (more than just Batman rogues) and now I feel the need to pull it up again!

Probably because of it being used for a trailer for Arkham City, but Short Change Hero by The Heavy is a fit for Batman and Gotham in general.

Also, Angel by Massive Attack is a perfect fit for Selina Kyle.
