I hate it when I have to look up jokes it makes me feel old but at least I learned something about Shazam.

I didn't get it, but it turns out that there's a verse in Paradise City by Guns "N" Roses that goes:

Captain America's been torn apart
Now he's a court jester with a broken heart
He said— Turn me around and take me back to the start
I must be losin' my mind—"Are you blind?"
I've seen it all a million times

I've heard that song probably... 7?... times in my life and never realized Captain America was in it until Wonderella's Twitter made me look it up. I'm pretty sure now Marvel's going to sue. It'd be the biggest comics-related lawsuit since DC Comics stole elements of Shazam/Captain Marvel (which at the time was far more popular than "Superman") and then successfully sued Captain Marvel's parent company until it disintegrated.  (No lie.) Then DC licensed the character and added it to their universe.  LIKE A BOSS.

Also like a boss: This guy playing an awesome cover of Paradise City on piano:

Somehow in my piano lessons we never got around to THAT. I could've been the most metal kid at the recital.

In case that's not quite hardcore enough for you here's Welcome To The Jungle on cello(s):
