The Donation Drive rolls on, with a preview of one of the tracks you can get from my all-new, exclusive album for all donors. Do you ever feel like Cap? The older we get, the references keep on keeping on. It’s weird, writing songs like this. Because in some ways, it’s about the fact that it has a lot of meta-pop-cultural references. And on the other hand, the references flow together into some kind of actual statement. It’s a weird meta-exercise to think about it like that. Maybe you don’t think of it like that. Maybe you just say “hey dope rapz.” I dunno.

In any case, the Donation Drive rolls on. Thanks to everyone who’s supported so far. The goal this year is 750 donors; after that, I’ll be donating the proceeds to an indie artist of the audience’s nomination. So let’s get crackin!

I’ll be performing in Greensboro this weekend at a special storytellers show.

More music tomorrow!!!

“Hulkbuster” & DONATION DRIVE 2015 BEGINS!

It’s that time of year again. Time to Donate! Donations help this site run, and keep producing free music for you all year long. Any amount gets all rewards! Click on the button above, or click here to donate!


It’s weird to me that Iron Man has had all the moments in trailers where I was like “OOOOOOOOOH!!!!” whether it was from the briefcase armor, or the Hulkbuster, or whatever. Felt like I had to make a little song about it.

I got tons of free music for everyone this week, as well as previews from the rewards package donors get and some other surprises. Thanks for five years of full-time music!

Don’t forget, I’ll be performing in Greensboro this weekend

It’s that time of year again. The one time a year I open up the donation jar, and ask people to donate to support the tons of free content that this website creates, now for five-plus years and running. June 6 through 18, tons of free content, and all donors who give ANY amount of money will get the following rewards:

1. Exclusive Donation Drive mixtape
An all-new, all original mixtape album of exclusive music. I save some of the best tracks for this album every year. It will include the preview song above, “W.W.W.W.D.”

2. Exclusive Mikal kHill Remix album
An album remixing some of the more popular free tracks I’ve released on this website, by collaborator and fellow nerd emcee, Mikal kHill.

3. BOOM! Studios Digital Comics Sampler
Very excited to offer all donors a BOOM! Studios digital comics sampler, featuring digital issues of some of the best comics that the great BOOM! Studios has to offer. Check out their lineup!

4. Donation Drive Goal: Support to Another Indie Artist
Additionally, this year, if I surpass my previous best of 750 donors, all proceeds raised past that point will be donated to an indie artist of the audience’s choosing. Submit any suggestions to adamwarrockmixtape(at), and if we can hit the goal, I’ll drop a nice donation into their kickstarter/patreon/paypal/whatever, and spread the love in the hopes that more artists can keep making great web content for you.

I’ll speak more about this as we get closer, but I hope you’ll consider donating and supporting this site. It’s how I make my living, and I pay for everything myself. Travel to cons and tours, merch production, album production, keeping this website running (and updating the server since it broke earlier this year). Help keep running another year.

“Howard (The Duck)” [free tunes]


Adam WarRock “Howard (The Duck)” (Download MP3)
Beat used: Matoma “That Old Thing”


I’m back! Making comic songs. Big shoutout to Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones (one of my fave artists) for their new Howard the Duck title, which you should go purchase and read now (link).

So this song took a weird turn, bc I basically wrote it all out to this super hardcore beat, kinda angry and salty (much like Howard) and it just wasn’t working. So I basically plugged this beat, and its weird 80s-ish vibe worked well, and the timing of the lyrics all fit. So basically the whole tone of the song flipped 180. I’m pretty happy with it.

I never had a huge connection to Howard the Duck, though I did get to read all the back issues of it thanks to my friend Curt who basically forced me to borrow it at one point. And while he basically kept saying “You’re never going to read this” (because I am infamous for borrowing things and then forgetting to read or watch them) – I did! So take that Curt! In your FACE! Anyway, you should grab the NEW comic. I know I’ll be reading it and keeping up with it. Whatever Chip does and Joe draws, I mean, I’m kind of already in.

I’m currently busting my hump to finish my Donation Drive stuff, which will be happening in early June. Rewards, rewards, rewards! For all who donate to help keep this site feeding you free music. It only happens once a year. So prepare.

Also, I have a show on Free Comic Book Day! I’ll be at Super-Fly Comics in Yellow Springs, OH this Saturday performing in the evening. Come by and say hi! (more info)

Remastered Collection Mixtape


Download the mixtape here

Sometime last year, I got new mastering software, and started professionally mastering all my songs. You can really hear a difference, if you listen to songs from like a year or two ago, and ones that I made in the past year. I think it sounds a lot better. Anyway, I went back and took some of my favorite songs from the site and other mixtapes and remastered them, along with a couple of new songs, like this one!

So here’s a very convenient album (with cover artwork by the awesome Jamie Noguchi) for you to listen to a bunch of WarRock stuff LIKE YOU’VE NEVER HEARD IT BEFORE. Hope you enjoy it.

1. D&DD (new track)
2. 100 Bars
3. Longshot (from Donation Drive Album)
4. Lex Luthor
5. Old Man River (Remix)
6. Hard Times
7. Nemo (off Laptop Fundraiser)
8. Borderlands (Remixed by Vince Vandal)
9. Active Squad (from Mass Effect 3 Mixtape)
10. Revenge (Adult Style) (From Kill Bill Mixtape)
11. Old Man Logan
12. Stumptown (Remix) (From Oni Press Mixtape)
13. The Hanging Gardens (From Bastion Mixtape)
14. All Day Breakfast (From Donation Drive Album)
15. Destroyer of Worlds (Prod. Vince Vandal)
16.  Ta-Nehisi
17. T.O.Y. (From West Coast Avengers Mixtape)
18. Sinking Ship (Prod. by Joules)

Most songs link to their respective homes, where you can find full credits. Track 5 features C. Schoonover. Track 9 features Mikal kHill, Beefy, Kabuto the Python. Track 13 originally by Darren Korb. All songs are for promotional use only, because it’s a mixtape dummy.
