Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na theme song!
With Batman getting a major update for a new generation in a blocky, brooding way for The LEGO Batman Movie on Feb. 10, it was only natural that the character’s hardcore upgrade would be accompanied by an equally metal (well, plastic) new theme song.
Fresh off the brand-new soundtrack out now, take a listen to Batman’s new theme, “Who’s The Bat(Man),” written and sung by — surprise! — Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump, whose voice pulls off a shockingly convincing dark knight, played in the film by Will Arnett.
The action-heavy tune kicks off both the movie and the track list, which also includes new songs from DNCE, Alex Aiono, Kirsten Arian, and Oh, Hush. But while “Who’s The (Bat)Man” seems to be a strong contender for the film’s album break-out, there’s also a strong possibility that Oh, Hush’s end-credits song “Friends Are Family” may spell the infectious downfall of the family van speaker system. No one can forget the sheer play count of The LEGO Movie‘s “Everything Is Awesome,” after all, and the happy post-film tune seems to be the heir apparent. Get ready to hear it everywhere.
Listen to that earworm here:
The soundtrack from the film, featuring a score by Grammy winner Lorne Balfe, is out now from WaterTower Music, a week ahead of the film’s release (where it’s expected to break the box office, if that tiny indie The LEGO Movie was any indication).
