- Captain America leads the way with the most streamed English language song to feature an Avenger (Paradise City by Guns N’ Roses)
30th April, 2019: To celebrate Avengers: Endgame smashing box office records when it crashed into cinema screens last week, global music streaming service Deezer has teamed up with LyricFind, the world’s leading lyric database, to assemble the Avengers characters who have been mentioned most frequently in song lyrics. Deezer also reveals the top streamed songs that feature Avengers across the globe.
According to LyricFind, the Hulk
is the Avenger that is featured the most in song lyrics from around the world
with a colossal 182 global song mentions. Iron Man blasts into second place
with 67 song mentions, while relative big screen newcomer Black Panther pounces
into the third spot with 44 mentions.
Top mentioned Avengers characters:
Hulk – 182
Man – 67
Panther – 44
America – 21
Strange – 6
But when it comes to streaming, Deezer reveals that Captain America leads the way with the most streamed song in English mentioning an Avenger, due to his cameo in Paradise City by Guns N’ Roses. Black Panther comes in second, thanks to rap artists 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar, Saudi, and Schoolboy Q including him in their song X, while Eminem’s reference to The Hulk in hit My Name Is has earned the green giant third place.
The Hulk returns in the top most
streamed Spanish language song, Héroe
Favorito by Romeo Santos. In Germany, Iron Man’s mention in Auf Die Guten Alten Zeiten by Dame takes
the number one spot. When it comes to French songs, Black Panther’s biggest
streamed hit is Pas Le Choix by
Sofiane ft. Lartiste & Kaaris.
Nigel Harding, VP Artist Marketing at Deezer said: “The Avengers
are having one of the biggest moments in pop culture right now, with the
release of their new film, and their popularity is also evident in music. The
Hulk may be the global favorite as the most mentioned Avenger in song lyrics,
but looking at our streaming data, we can see that this varies depending on
where Avengers music fans are based.”
