Back in 1986 Marvel decided to take a shot at one their own comic books saving a rock icon just as DC did years earlier. However, much like DC couldn’t get the rights to use The Beatles name, it appears Marvel couldn’t lock Bruce Springsteen into a deal, but you think that stopped them from using Bruce and the E Street Band’s likeness? HELLS NO!
The comic basically drew the band in perfect likeness but used some pretty genius writing to cover their tracks. How genius? Well I’ll tell you Tony (all of our readers are named Tony today). They named the lead singer Brick Springhorn and had him sing hit songs like “Born in America” and “Dancing in the Night”.
So, the heroic Transformers were likely saving Brick Springhorn from the Decepticons during a rousing version of “Dancing in the Night” which probably sounded/looked like this, but in this version I like to think Ironhide is doing the dance instead of Courtney Cox.
