  • Apparently the epic battle between Marvel and D.C. heroes takes place in a junior high gymnasium.

Superfun Yeah Yeah Rocketship will be performing on Free Comic Book Day, as we reported yesterday.

The electro spazz released an appropriate new video for the occasion a few weeks ago, for the song "I Like Marvel, You Like DC."

A time-honored conflict in the vein of mods v. rockers, the fun clip features plenty of superheroes, geek-outs and playful references. Enjoy.

Here are the lyrics:

You're so great and you're so neat you're the greatest girl that I ever did meet I liked your (0:36)???? and your profile song then everything went so wrooong I asked to watch the X-Men come together you said you'd rather watch Batman Forever (oh-nooo) oh no, this can't be, she loves DC What a stupid bitch!

(Chorus) I like Marvel and you like DC you like Batman and I love Wolverine I've never been in this situation before it's not an infinite price, this is a secret war

you say you prefer the Green Lantern (gore?) (1:22) but I'm more of a fan of the Fantastic 4 so go hang out with your Super Friends and I'll stay at home and read my X-Men I'm sorry babe, we can't co-exist cause (1:37)?????? that was some stupid shit

I'm Peter Parker an you're Mary Jane I'm not Clark Kent, YOU'RE NOT LOIS LANE YOU'RE NOT! YOU'RE A BITCH!

(Chorus) I like Marvel and you like DC you like Batman, I love Wolverine I've never been in this situation before and I don't think I wanna be in that anymore cause I like Marvel an you like DC you like Batman, I love Wolverine I've never been in this situation before it's not a daily crisis it's a civil war
