    Default X-Men: Musical Tastes

    Backstory: I have a phone that's kind of messed up. If I load up music from albums to my phone, sometimes it will scatter them in weird ways. For instance, Weezer's blue album is broken up in two when I look by albums, where every song except the third one is on one album and the third track by itself is in another album.

    WTF?!?

    Anyways, I resorted to putting together playlists for songs that I wanted to listen to, when I got a brilliant idea: I would create playlists of 10-15 songs that I think my favourite X-Men characters would listen to. It would be an exercise in creativity, where I would try to attribute songs from various artists to as many X-Men characters.

    For instance: Cyclops's play list would look like this (IMO)

    I Sat By The Ocean - Queens of the Stone Age
    Way Down We Go - Kaleo
    Them Bones - Alice in Chains
    Getaway - Pearl Jam
    In The Fade - Queens of the Stone Age
    Ruiner - Nine Inch Nails
    Just Like You Imagined - Nine Inch Nails
    Look Around - Blues Traveler
    Wake Up - Rage Against The Machine
    Hold On - Pearl Jam
    The Diamond Sea - Sonic Youth

    This is not even a set list, as I think I will adjust it to make it as "Scott Summers" as i can. I have lists for Cyclops, White Queen, Wolverine, Rogue and Psylocke so far. I will be creating lists for Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Gambit, Beast, Iceman, Archangel, and so many more.

    This is where you come in. I figure there should be a lot of people that have opinions on what they think their favourite characters would listen to. So weigh in or even post about music that characters have said they like or dislike.

    Looking forward to any and all input.

    Warning: I will disregard any examples from Brian Michael Bendis' run.

    I can see X-23 being a Metallica fan because the lyrics of The Unforgiven resonate with her.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    Ah so true! He's also a fan of the Rolling Stones as mentioned by Luke Cage and I think he was also listening to "Life's Been Good" by Joe Walsh during Fraction's Uncanny X-Men run.

    But seriously, it's a damn shame that the meeting between Logan and Freddie Mercury never happened, it would have been the greatest team-up of all time

    I like to think that Logan is also into Johnny Cash

    The song that played at Scott and Jean's wedding was "One Love" from U2, so I guess they are fans.

    You're welcome Despite some "missteps", I think it was a really entertaining and funny series at the time!

    I agree, it would make sense. No wonder they chose one of Cash's song for the Logan trailer

    Polaris' would, appropriately, lean toward metal.

    Nearly all Halestorm songs are ones I think Lorna would listen to. In particular, I think she'd listen to these ones heavily as their themes involve surviving against adversity and breaking out of repressive molds and perceptions to show one's real power and self.

    Daughters of Darkness
    Freak Like Me
    Vicious (which makes me think of Malice, if that history was redone in a good way)
    Mz Hyde
    Reckoning
    I Am The Fire

    And of course, Black Vultures:



    Also songs from bands like In This Moment (e.g. Joan of Arc, Beast Within, Whore), and The Pretty Reckless (Going to Hell)
    I can also be reached on Twitter and WordPress.

    Nightcrawler would have Mozart "Requiem" somewhere in his playlist.


    As for Wolverine, I imagine he's a big fan of musicals since he did like Oklahoma!! (ha ha, make a joke about Hugh Jackman. The comic beat you to it). I imagine he has "Do You Heart the People Sing?" somewhere in his playlist because X-Men.

    Dazzler is a huge Kylie fan. Light Years is the soundtrack to her life.

    Psylocke is a Europop fan. Girls Aloud, The Saturday’s, Deborah Cox’s remixes. Anything with a very female empowerment message.
