Superhero Songs – A Long-Lost Episode

Superhero movies can not only introduce audiences and fans to whole new worlds and characters, they can sometimes be an introduction to new music as well. Many superhero movies have utilized popular music as part of their soundtracks. In some cases songs have been produced specifically for the movie itself (‘89 Batman), while other films use more of the mix tape approach (Guardians of the Galaxy). Both methods can provide the secret ingredient for making a scene or moment pop in these films. 

Today we are happy to bring you this BRAND NEW (long lost) episode where we review and discuss many of our favorite songs that have appeared in Superhero movies and explore what exactly makes them work.
