"Galactus" is a song written by Rivers Cuomo in 1991.



"Galactus" was recorded by Rivers Cuomo to 8-track in the summer of 1991 while living at 2914 Urban Ave. in West Los Angeles.[1] Cuomo purportedly later destroyed the master. The song's title is, presumably, inspired by the Marvel Comics character of the same name. Cuomo uploaded a scan of his original handwritten lyrics to his personal website in the early 2000s. A 17-second partial clip from Cuomo's demo tape, The Yeastmaster, was released in 2020 as part of the demo compilation Alone V: Before Weezer.

Lyrics for "Galactus"

Honey-o-bunny-o-mommy-o what's the ride?
Funny-o-baby-o-daddy-o what's the ride?
I've run to Babylonia
I've crossed a million streams
I've loved a zillion mountains
And I've drank up all the seas
My name is Galactus
My name is Galactus
I'm as bad as bad can be
Kitty-o-tittie-o-video watcha' gonna do for me?
Open the box -- hear the boom! Watcha' got in store for me?
Betcha' better know my name
If you don't it's all the same
Cuz' I'm gonna tell you now
Momma said tell you now
My name is Galactus
I'm as bad as bad can be
Young man went down to the river
Looked me up and said to me, yeah
