Maybe a stretch but the album "Downward is Heavenward" by Hum is full of kooky scifi fantastical lyrics like "put this benzine ring around your finger and sail through the astroid belt" or something that makes me think of Infinity Gauntlet or 90s X-Men

Here's why Huk is lame:

Lame vs. Lazy?

(no one's called me Huk in years! take me back.)

it seemed disrespectful to call a doctor lame

You wouldn't say that if I was Dr. Aquaman.

I recently bought the greatest hits album by Earlene Bentley, who was a disco/ni-NRG diva in the 80s, and one particular song on it was a bit of surprise to me:

Listen to the lyrics, especially starting from 1.22. Wtf?

The Guardians spread the message far and wide, my friend.

nine years pass...

So, apparently that song was co-written by Ian Levine, who's not only a big Doctor Who fan but also a DC fan... So I guess he snuck in that reference to "Caught in the Act"?

(Reposting the song since the link above seems to be dead, the relevant bit starts at 0:50.)

who's not only a big Doctor Who fan but also a DC fan

not any more! he sold off his complete collection of every single DC publication ever after (iirc) The New 52, and has been throwing his toys out of the pram over there now being a lady Dr Who for three years. (he still likes old Who though.)

was worth reposting - the song's a lot less terrible than other examples of his musical output I've heard.
