I don’t listen to music while reading that makes about as much sense as reading while talking to your wife or watching a movie

I think DC universe online should ad background music to the read comics function.

Basically any of the modern DCEU soundtracks work for the Rebirth stuff but I’m not really interested in using a soundtrack to soundtrack my reading =)

MCR: Danger Days - Batman: No Man’s Land

The Glitch Mob: Drink the Sea - New Gods

Anamanaguchi: Endless Fantasy - Batman Beyond

Anyone else have some good pairings of music and comic books?

I listen to classical music most of the time when I read comics, with some other stuff thrown in for good measure. Ride of the Valkyries pairs well with large scale action sequences.

Powerman 5000 pairs well when Red Hood is crackin’ skulls too.

Powerman 5000 + Red Hood

That’s going to have to happen now. Awesome pair @Vroom!

I actually had the unfortunate circumstance of reading basically the entirety of AvX while listening to Asking Alexandria, years ago. My manager’s son had the album on a loop. Now, I can’t read that comic without hearing AA in my head or hear any song from that album without having AvX flashbacks lol

You’re welcome. Hope you enjoy it.

PM5K’S “When Worlds Collide” would probably go well with RHaTO #25 and the scuffle between RH and Batman. Haven’t tried it yet but it sounds good in theory.

I enjoy reading older issues and will generally queue up music from the year the title came out. It puts me in the shoes of what someone experiencing the comic at the time it came out would have been experiencing and relates the cultural zeitgeist of the works.

Actually as a musician I prefer to have silence when I read, isn’t that curious?

The soundtrack idea is interesting. My son , in his 30s, is a big fan of soundtracks along with whatever modern music. He’s a huge movie buff, I assume that’s where the soundtrack love comes from.

I know you said no soundtracks but two of the best movie scores of all time are on my comic book Playlist - Danny Elfmans “Batman Returns” and of course John Williams’ “Superman”

I listen to my Harley playlist I had my fans put together on my page on Facebook. I have like 133,000+ fans and they have all given songs to me to add to it on Spotify when I read Harley stuff. My personal playlist for everything is a mix of Slipknot(I’m from Des Moines, IA :heart: ), Butcher Babies, Modest Mouse, Placebo, Dashboard Confessional and Hole. I can’t read and not listen to loud headphones. I’ve been like that since I was a kid!
