Okay, trivia buffs, listen up! Hereâ€™s an obscure track that makes reference to an even more obscure comic book character. Can you tell me where â€œheâ€ first appeared? The song is called â€œEgo, the Living Planetâ€ and itâ€™s by a drug-rock heavy-metal band called Monster Magnet.
Leave your answers in the comments section and the first one with the correct title and issue number wins a crummy prize of some kind.
(Of course you can see EXACTLY where Ego first appeared simply by looking at the comic book cover above. Not a very challenging trivia contest, was it?)
On a personal note, I had the privilege of working with Dave Wyndorf, the singer and founding member of Monster Magnet, when he was too young to drive and a member of seminal punk group Shrapnel. So now you know.
