One of the most powerful X-Men superheroes, Wolverine possesses three retractable claws in both his hands, plus animal-keen senses, regenerative and healing capabilities, and enhanced strength. He’s a bit of an anti-hero, who spends a lot of time brooding, however, when he does spring into action, it’s with laser-like focus and little hesitation in the use of deadly force.
While we’d love to think Wolverine would have something totally unexpected on his iPod, like Britney Spears or Spice Girls, we just can’t imagine this particular superhero would be interested in any kind of bubble-gum pop. Yes, we reckon he’s a bit of an alternative rocker – we also think he’d enjoy some slow-burn ballads with lots of aching lyrics, on account of his brooding nature. But enough chit-chat, let’s dive into Wolverine’s Top 5 songs.
The First Cut is the Deepest by Sheryl Crow
Yes, we think that Wolverine and anyone who comes up against him would agree – the first cut is indeed the deepest. With his retractable claws and incredible strength, Wolverine can inflict deadly damage on any of his foes. On a more emotional level, Wolverine’s also had a bit of a tumultuous and tragic love life, so we reckon he can definitely relate to this song. We’ve also decided that while this song has been covered by several artists, the version he likes the most is by Sheryl Crow.
Highway to Hell by AC/DC
Named after the wolverine, a solitary animal with a spitfire personality and a reputation for strength and ferocity, there’s no doubt in our minds that any track by enduring metal rockers AC/DC would be high on Wolverine’s playlist. But because of his love for the open road and penchant for destructive behaviour, we estimate that Highway to Hell is the one most likely to make it into his Top 5.
Cry Wolf by a-ha
In the wild, the wolf is the wolverine’s natural enemy, and we know Wolverine likes to keep his friends close, and his enemies even closer. This hit song by the popular Norwegian pop group, a-ha, has lyrics and music that evoke a wild and uncertain world full of darkness, betrayal and longing – a world that Wolverine can most certainly relate to.

Hurts So Good by John Mellencamp
It’s not all doom and gloom in Wolverine’s playlist, as this musically upbeat track suggests. Of course, it wouldn’t be Wolverine if the lyrics of the song weren’t a little on the broody and obsessive side. After all, he did enjoy a rather destructive relationship with telepath Jean Grey, while she was dating Cyclops, so he can definitely relate to the words and get his angst on, while busting out a couple of awkward dance moves in the process.
Hurt by Nine Inch Nails & Johnny Cash
Suffice it to say, any group with a name like Nine Inch Nails is going to pique Wolverine’s interest. The fact that they also produce incredibly dark and deep songs like Hurt is another reason. Wolverine’s violent past has made him someone who, while capable of feeling intense compassion and love for others, is also prone to intense and destructive behaviour. This song perfectly encapsulates that. In fact Wolverine loves this song so much, he also has the transcendent version by Johnny Cash on his playlist too.
