Heroism in Music: Captain America heads for Paradise City

 Since Axl Rose has finally deemed the time worthy to release CHINESE DEMOCRACY, it seems only fair to mention the lyrics to "Paradise City" (and not just because APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION is a MUCH better album than the new, Axl?).  "Paradise City", while written in the 80's, seems much more relevant today:

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 losing my mind
"Are you blind?!"
I've seen it all a mllion times
