Viral Radar: Born This Way Gets Parodied X-Men Style

"It doesn’t matter if you love men or X-M-E-N…Just put your claws up, ‘cause baby you were born this way!" So begins the latest parody of Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’, the X-Men version.

“It doesn’t matter if you love men or X-M-E-N…Just put your claws up, ‘cause baby you were born this way!”  So begins the latest parody of Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’, the X-Men version.  Ryan from The Warp Zone sings, in an awesome Juggernaut-esque helmet, about all the joys and sorrows of being an X-Man.

Ryan said that he was inspired to write the song after seeing X-Men First Class over the weekend.  In the description, ‘The Warp Zone’ write, “It’s rough at the moment but if it gets a good response we’ll try to make a full version of the song!”  The video has 165,500 views so far, since it’s upload on June 6, and I’ve got a feeling it’s going to continue climbing the charts.  Fingers crossed that The Warp Zone will make a full music video of the song, because seriously…how awesome would that be?

I really like how they managed to give a shout out to tons of X-Men in the song, from Iceman to Banshee, Wolverine, Havok, Magneto, Pyro, and more, and even allude to Beast, Mystique, Emma Frost and others with the line, “red, blue, steel, or hairy chest…scaly pores or diamond breasts”.  If they do a new version, I’d like to see them include even more!

Check out the video below and let us know what you think in the comments.  Are you an X-Men fan?  How much would you like to see a full music video of ‘X-Men Born This Way’?
