Madness, The Human League and Anthrax have all done songs inspired by 2000AD, Buster Bloodvessel and Lemmy are also fans, Russell T Davis is also a fan as there were various homages during his producreship of Doctor Who, any others we know of?

This has been discussed in the past on this forum.

Don't know about "are fans". As for "were and might still be fans":

Phil Oakey, The Human League (already mentioned):

(From Phil Oakey & Giorgio Moroder 'Together in Electric Dreams' video)

Peter Hook, New Order:


Ride:


And not forgetting another bunch of oldies, Shriekback with 'Nemesis':

The Manic Street Preachers.

Richey Edwards said he was never into the macho guns and sci-fi crap, but loved Nemesis and thought Kano was one of the most beautiful characters ever created. "A cross between Kurtz and the Virgin Mary". Their song from the 1995 Dredd soundtrack was the last thing he worked on (although he never played on anything) before he went missing.

We should make 2000ad - the album as a downloadable playlist. Featuring all the songs, and songs by bands, that are inspired by 2000ad.

Clever bugger Douglas Wolk beat you to it, James. His spotify playlist can be found here.

I don't know for certain that they're fans, but Takman and Subzee D namecheck the judge in song titles. There's a cottage industry in dubstep collages of the 2012 film on Youtube.
