Captain America, Doctor Strange, and C-3PO Rock Out Together
Here's a fun fact: From 1977 to 1979, Marvel Comics published a magazine aimed at young people where they covered movies, music, and pop culture that was hip at the time. You know, stuff like Meatloaf (the singer, not the food) and Grease (the movie, not... grease). The magazine was called Pizzazz, and it only lasted 16 issues before being cancelled and lost to the sands of time. Until now, that is. 

Twitter user @ThatWeissGuy has unearthed an amazing cover from the February 1978 issue of Pizzazz that depicts singer Linda Ronstadt fronting a band that features Captain America on bass, Doctor Strange on guitar, and for some reason, C-3PO on drums. Behold, the greatest band of all time:



Can we just pause for a minute to admire how great this picture is? You've got Cap, who by the looks of his grin couldn't be happier sacrificing his own glory by playing the bass. In other words, typical Steve Rogers. Then there's Stephen Strange, who appears to be playing the guitar with magic, which I'm betting resulted in some pretty sweet licks. Then there's everyone's second favorite Star Wars droid keeping time on the drums, even though he has nothing to do with his superhero bandmates. Maybe the author thought he was Iron Man? And then finally, there's of course Linda Ronstadt, who remarkably doesn't look all that out of place leading this literal band of misfits. 

The '70s seem like they were a crazy time, I only wish I could have been around to hear these guys battle evil with their forceful rendition of Ronstadt's classic, "You're No Good".
