Batman Theme", the title song of the 1966 Batman TV series, was composed by Neal Hefti. This song is built around a guitar hook reminiscent of spy film scores and surf music. It has a twelve bar blues progression, using only three chords until the coda. The eleven cries of "Batman!" are sung by a chorus of four tenors and four sopranos (performed by The Ron Hicklin Singers). A long-held myth purports that the chorus is actually a group of horns.

Over the course of its history, the Batman franchise has generated a wide variety of music produced in connection with both live-action and animated television series, and with the many Batman films. Music associated with the Batman franchise includes: "Batman Theme," theme song of the 1960s American television series Batman. Batman (score), album of Danny Elfman's score for the 1989 film.

(A-side Theme appears to be the actual TV show intro music. B-side is original song by Toronto, CA group. According to an interview with John Finley, the lead singer for the Checkmates and later the vocalist for Rhinoceros, this record was recorded in Dec. 1965 at the Peppermint Lounge in New York - at the request of Leo Pillott, director of public relations for ABC TV – intended as part of a live album soundtrack for the Batman TV series, but never used.) (Members of this group later went on to form Elektra and Rhinoceros)
