* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The song "Jimmy Olsen's Blues" by the Spin Doctors was a minor hit in TheNineties. It introduces the idea of Jimmy having a crush on ComicBook/LoisLane, an idea that was later revisited in ''ComicBook/SupermanBirthright'' (where Jimmy has a goofy, teenaged crush on Lois). The song is pretty cool to listen to, and is definitely an EarWorm.
** The song features the AlbumTitleDrop "I've got a pocket full of kryptonite."
