    Musical Joe references

    Along the lines of "spot GI Joe in a movie" lists or "TV/Movies with Joe names", how about:

    list any songs that make references to GI Joe. Hip hop, in particular, is rife with them.

    For example, much as I hate him:

    Black Rob - "Like Woah"
    (the line: Play y'allself - I get the G.I. Joe)

    or

    Busta Rhymes "WooHah (Got you all in check)"
    (the line: "Blast your --- hit you with my direct blow
    Bo!! Coming through like G.I. Joe")


    But my favourite all time:

    Leaders of the New School, "Time Will Tell"
    (the line: "Hostile, most wild, stomp - I'll rise. Timber in the land of my man Snake Eyes! Shallow as a shadow in the shade of the night!")

    I got a few more, but can't recall them just now...

    so she told me to come over and I took that trip
    and then she pulled out my mushroom tip
    and when it came out it went drip drip drip
    I didn’t know she had that GI Joe kung-fu grip

    chorus: (repeat)
    and it went uuh caress me down
    uhh and that’s the lovin’ sound

    dunt, dunt, dunt dunt...ala Sublime

    "Well the crowd started cheering the party was slamming
    The thundercats and pokemon they was break dancing
    The transformers hopped in and started pop locking
    With g.i. joe and johnny bravo chilling and just watching "

    Awesome!

    Another:
    Canibus: "Javelin Fangs"

    "Can't let the circumstance stop me
    G.I. Joe, O.G., Desert E's, Desert fatigues
    Dry weather gear for the desert breeze
    140° degrees, I can barely breathe
    Toast bread and fry eggs on the roof of my Jeep"


    And another:

    Nas: "Sly Fox"

    "The eye in the sky
    Number five on the dial
    secret agenda frequency antenna
    Doctor Mindbender -remote control
    soul controller, your brain holder"

    Artist: Ben Folds Five
    Song: One Angry Dwarf And 200 Solemn Faces Lyrics
    Album: Whatever & Ever Amen
    Lyric:
    September '75 I was 47 inches high
    Mom said by Christmas I would have
    A badass mother G.I. Joe
    For your little minds to blow
    I still got beat up after class.

    Exclamation Best Joe Song!

    I think the best JOE reference I have EVER heard in any kind of MEDIA was in a song called RED EYE TO MIAMI! The piece is by a real cool band called "ROPER". The song chronicles various "commando adventures" and makes references to several JOE TRADEMARKS.

    Here is a link to the song on youtube..

    What do you think? Pretty good right?

    The group is called No Motiv and the song is Nostalgia

    Yesterday I found something in my room
    It was a G.I. Joe comic book that I had
    And suddenly a feeling overcame my gloom
    And I realized how things were back in the past
    and I'll never feel the same
    and I'll always feel the pain
    of nostalgia
    Ouch! Watch the face
