Scientific visionary, wildly successful entrepreneur, Elon Musk is also a music-lover, savoring artists from Frank Sinatra to Andrea Bocelli. Better still, he often inspires music.
Often compared to the character Tony Stark in Iron Man, Elon Musk is a test-tube, Bunsen-burner guy, but he’s also a rock star of pop culture. His phenomenal success and free spirit have generated a veritable cult following, and some groups have celebrated his iconic personality in song. In 2016, heavy metal’s Raptor Command dedicated its first single to the entrepreneur: “Elon: champion for humanity.” The words echo with praise of SpaceX and Musk’s fascination with Mars: “Rocketing to the stars, on to Mars we fly.” And, “He’ll take the world beyond the stars.”
Rapper Rob Grimes considers the entrepreneur his mentor and composed a song called… “Elon Musk”! “Elon is one of the people in business I look up to, and I wanted to pay homage to one of my mentors,” he affirms in a clip description.
An internaut by the name of Steven Kaminsky wrote a tribute song, cataloguing everything Tesla’s CEO has accomplished, entitled simply, “Elon Musk Song”.
We’re eagerly awaiting a tribute from Future and Young Thug 😉 (If that one sailed over your head, click here for a refresher.)
