‘Peter Parker’s Alter Ego’

Unlike some of the other songs in this list, the Temper Trap‘s ‘Peter Parker’s Alter Ego’ — found on the band’s 2006 self-titled EP — may not be as well-known. But we have to give it props for its embodiment of the web-shooting slinger we all know and love.

The band really divulges into the life of Peter Parker in the lyrics, most noticeably in the verse, “I used to want to be a hero / Until I found that even heroes die / I’m Peter Parker’s alter ego / Waiting on the telephone line.” Although these lyrics are up for interpretation, we can’t help but reminisce about Uncle Ben’s death after hearing this line.
