Your San Diego Comic Con 2013 Playlist

Songs to psych you up and soundtrack your SDCC.

  • California Waiting by Kings of Leon – the theme song for those of us who travel from out of state to SDCC.
  • Let’s Go by Matt & Kim – this song will get your early SDCC mornings off to a great start.  It’s better than coffee.
  • Radioactive by Imagine Dragons – You can’t escape this song, it has been used in numerous video games, TV, and movie trailers.
  • Megalithic Symphony by AWOLNATION – this has video game soundtrack written all over it.
  • What I’ve Done by Linkin Park – what’s summer and SDCC without a blockbuster action movie song?
  • Done All Wrong by Black Rebel Motorcycle – one of my favorite bands and a song from the Twilight Saga soundtracks.
  • Don’t Stand So Close To Me by The Police – because at some point someone is gonna invade your personal space during SDCC.
  • Lead Me Home by Jamie N Common – amazing song from The Walking Dead soundtrack.
  • All These Girls by Atlas Genius – because nerdy girls are not the same as other girls and you should own it!
  • This Is Not An Exit by Beecake – you might recognize the lead singer of Beecake – Billy Boyd aka Pippin (my favorite hobbit) from The Lord of the Rings.
  • Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me by U2 -- from the Batman Forever soundtrack (not the best movie in the franchise, but the song makes up for it).
  • Moving Clocks Run Slow by We We’re Promised Jetpacks – after a couple hours in line at SDCC you start thinking the clock and the line is never going to move.
  • Dancing On TV by Bad Veins – great song and the intro to the video has a fun tribute to the video games of our youth.
  • Beast by Nico Vega – two words: Bioshock Infinte.

Such a great idea! I love creating epic playlist--it's a lost art, really. :)
Here are some songs that come to mind:

Mr. Sandman - The Chordettes (homage to Neil Gaiman as well as Back to the Future)

The Kill - The Dresden Dolls (homage to Neil Gaiman's wife, Amanda Effin Palmer)

Never Too Much - Luther Vandross (homage to RDJ's brilliant entrance to the IM3 panel last year)

Still Alive - GLaDOS (homage to science and great cake)

White & Nerdy - Weird Al (naturally)

Hey! Ho! Let's Go and anything else by The Ramones (because...yes!)

The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room) - Flight of the Conchords (because Nerdy Girlies are beautiful! Own that! *snap snap*)

Diamond Thrones by The White Panda is a must have for any GoT fans.

"In the Garage," Weezer because any song that talks about 12 sided die and Kitty Pryde is SDCC enough for me
