“REMEMBER BANE”: A DARK KNIGHT RISES-THEMED PARODY OF GUNS N’ ROSES
Not gonna lie: as a Guns N’ Roses nerd, a Batman nerd, and a Chris Nolan nerd, I got unreasonably excited when I heard about “Remember Bane,” Overthinking It‘s Dark Knight Rises-themed parody of “November Rain.” Alas, it’s not really all that funny. I guess, in all fairness, what the hell can you do with a Dark Knight Rises-themed parody of “November Rain?” Well… maybe they should have asked themselves that question before they made this!
The video is below, with the lyrics after the jump, on the off-chance you can’t understand what Fauxl is singing. And if you haven’t done so already, you check out the excellent piece on the hard rock and metal soundtrack/superhero movie connection that D.X. Ferris wrote for us last week.
When I look into his muzzle, I can see a man deranged
But Nolan, when I see him, I have to ask, hey, what’s his name, oh yeah
I know he’s not the Joker, Mr. Freeze, or Hugo Strange
And it’s hard to fear for Batman, when I don’t remember Bane.
We’ve been through this such a long long time
Just tryin’ to kill the pain (of Batman and Robin)
But Riddler or the Penguin, Poison Ivy, Catman
Harley Quinn or Two-Face could have been okay, o-kay
If you had the time to render CGI, Health Ledger hologram
Would have blown my mind…Make me rewind…
So if you make a sequel, then Nolan don’t refrain
(But) For now I’m disappointed, ’cause I don’t care much for Bane
Could you pick someone better-known?
Maybe Catwoman, on her own
I wish that you had picked someone, better known
Oooooh, even King Tut from the Adam West showww
I know it’s hard to keep an open mind
When even fanboys want to harm you
But even if I had an open mind
I still can’t understand his di-a-loooooogue
And when my fears subside I watch the trailer again, oh yeah
I still can’t understand him and my speakers aren’t to blame
So never mind my nitpicks, in the end I’ll still complain
Disappointment is forever, I can’t understand the Bane.
Don’t you think that he needs subtitles?
Don’t you think he should be redubbed?
Nobody understands him!
I’m not the only one!
I’m not the only one!
