Congrats on that, riven, and good choice, MacGyver. I'm with you on being surprised no one guessed it out of habit sooner from what I've seen of previous S rounds.

I think it speaks to Superman's reknown as the quintessential superhero as he is one of the top (if not the top) character that seems to immediately come to mind- at least in American culture. (Of course, he's also one of, (if not the first) superheroes too.)

Thanks! Awesome song. I had heard of it before but never actually listened to it. I love the line about how Superman was saving the world from Solomon Grundy. (I get the feeling the Crash Test Dummies must have released this song around 1993, when Superman died in the comics saving the world from Doomsday- given the funeral motif in the video. That, and the fact, that I mainly only know of this band from their "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" song, featured in the "Dumb and Dumber" soundtrack- and of course, Weird Al Yankovic's parody of it- "Headline News". Very Happy Cool )
(But never fear- Superman had a resurrection as well and is back to stay!)
