You can vote for Superhero as TeamRock/Metal Hammer track of the week. Here is what they say: “It seemed appropriate that this song popped up on marvel.com, where bassist Bill Gould waxed lyrical about the band’s comic book influences: “We kind of make movie scenes for movies that don’t exist,” he explains. “Superhero was one of those, where it was definitely a superhero comic”. The propulsive Superhero stomps along with a blunt metal crunch bringing to mind Surprise! You’re Dead!, building to a flamboyant descending gothic piano section with a windswept guitar solo and infectious ‘leader of men’ mantra.”
A bit late to this one but reminded of it by a post from Rod Patton on the Mike Patton and Faith No More Facebook page. The video is from who else but fnm4ever and show’s Faith No More as an answer to a question on the Chilean version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire? and the contestant’s candid admission of her Patton dreams.
And it would be remiss not to include Mike Bordin’s Who Wants to be a Millionaire? appearance.
The rest of the bill for Faith No More’s only north American festival show to date was announced yesterday. Here’s the poster:
