    In my head is a picture of Kevin Bacon running through an empty warehouse, doing gymnastics, working out his frustration against the evil tyranny of John Lithgow's pulpit.

    Dammit - I hadn't made that connection until you brought it up. Now I can't get that awful "hero" song from Spiderman out of my head!

    I can't stand Chad Kruger!

    1974. "Billy Don't Be a Hero". What a sappy song!

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    As I read this thread...

    I was listening to "Hero" by the Foo Fighters, off the Varsity Blues soundtrack...

    Perhaps a "cool tune" category is in order?

    That song is such crap! On the 1200 mile drive to AZ stations overplayed that song and "It's getting hot in here"- I cannot think of those songs and not feel car sick-
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    I was trying to figure out the meaning of this thread for the past hour when I just realized that all you weirdos call them "hero or submarine sandwiches."

    Don't you know they're called Hoagies?? The name comes from "Hog Island" an island in the Delaware River between Philly and Camden, NJ. It used to be used for some industrial use in 1800s, and the workers brought their lunchmeat sandwiches on long rolls from the bakery on the Philly side.

    Well, I was always told "hero sandwich" comes from the greek "gyro", when the greek immigrants in NYC used to make sandwiches to sell on the street or out of stands.

    Okay... here's some cheese...

    How about the theme song to Greatest American Hero? Ewwww... now that's something you won't want stuck in your head all day.



    But I would agree Foo Fighters is at least the cool choice. Living here in Alberta, I've heard waaaaaay too much Nickelback (although I did see their concert for free last year and it wasn't too bad).

    Wasn't there a song about a hero that was by Earth, Wind, and Fire?

    It needs to be something suitably rock-ballad-ish, y'know, get out the lighters and wave. *starts humming the enterprise wetter-than-a-wet-lettuce them tune*


    Does anyone actually know why people do that?

    Ever see that 1992/1993 flick starring Dustin Hoffman & Geena Davis called "Hero"?

    Ugh.

    But back on topic!

    Look at what's happened to me-,
    I can't believe it myself.
    Suddenly I'm up on top of the world,
    It should've been somebody else.

    Believe it or not,
    I'm walking on air.
    I never thought I could feel so free-.
    Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
    Who could it be?
    Believe it or not it's just me.

    It's like a light of a new day-,
    It came from out of the blue.
    Breaking me out of the spell I was in,
    Making all of my wishes come true-.

    Believe it or not,
    I'm walking on air.
    I never thought I could feel so free-.
    Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
    Who could it be?
    Believe it or not it's just me.
    Who could it be?
    Believe it or not it's just me



    Ain't the internet a wonderful thing?

    BTW did you know:

    The Greatest American Hero was also given the distinct honor of being alluded to on Seinfeld. George re-wrote the words to the Mike Post/Stephen Geyer theme song, using “Believe it or not George isn’t at home” for his answering machine’s outgoing message. A superhero and a pop culture reference point... http://www.yesterdayland.com/popoped...ime/pt1201.php
