Imagine you walk down the street and find an iPod just lying in the middle of the road. You bend down to pick it up, and find a sticker on it that says “Property of Batman”. You can’t believe your eyes, but you’re very curious to know: is Batman a hopeless romantic or does he like to get “jiggy” with it? So you press play and all of a sudden you can hear exactly what Batman listens to while he’s either fighting crime, or chilling at home…
Batdance – Prince
It should come as no surprise that Batdance is on the top of the playlist. It is, after all, Batman’s theme song. Bruce Wayne is also a huge fan of Prince, so it’s really the best of both worlds coming together to provide the perfect soundtrack for the perfect superhero.
Smooth Criminal – Michael Jackson
Finding out that Smooth Criminal is one of the top songs on Batman’s iPod is perhaps not that surprising. But once you start listening to it, you’ll realise it’s not actually the fact that it’s about crime, but it’s all about the beat. You can imagine that Batman would listen to this as he’s about to fly into the night to deal with some baddies. But Michael Jackson? It does beg the question: Bruce, are you OK?
Hopelessly Devoted To You – Olivia Newton-John
What on earth is this? It’s no secret that Batman has plenty of love interests, some of them broken off due to the fact that the ladies cannot deal with his duality (think Vicki Vale). But we can actually see Batman sitting at home with a bottle of wine, pressing play and singing along: “But now there’s no way to hide, since you pushed your love aside…” Even superheroes get the blues, after all.
Take On Me – a-ha
We can just see Batman driving out of the Batcave in his Batmobile listening to Take on Me, in true Corky Romano style. It‘s the perfect song to get you in the mood to fight crime, and you may just enjoy it – Batman certainly does.

Let’s Get Rocked – Def Leppard
Batman is no stranger to rock music, and we can imagine that he likes to listen to some AC/DC or Def Leppard every now and then. Let’s Get Rocked is a great track to get you in the mood for those nights that you just want to go out and kick ass.
November Rain – Guns N’ Roses
Staying with the rock theme, but taking it a bit slower, we find that November Rain is quite high on the most played songs on Batman’s iPod. Why? Well, since his parents died in the month of October, it was quite a tough month for poor Bruce, and November Rain takes him back to that time, thinking about the death of his parents, and the trauma he had to go through. Sad.
Getting’ Jiggy Wit It – Will Smith
On your mark, ready, set, let’s go! Yes, even Batman likes to rip it up sometimes, and there isn’t a more perfect song than Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It to, well, get down on it.
Saving the World One Song at a Time
It seems as if Batman’s taste in music is pretty diverse, but if that helps him to save the world, who are we to argue. Whether it’s sad, happy or just plain silly, Batman likes to take things slow and speed things up from time to time, but then again… don’t we all?
