The Lead Singer Of Fall Out Boy Did A Song For LEGO Batman
If you've ever wished that the hit songs released with Batman movies - such as Seal's 'Kissed by a Rose' and U2's 'Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me', both from Batman Forever - actually revolved around the superhero himself, you're in luck.
With the highly-anticipated release of The Lego Batman Movie quickly approaching, one of the singles on the film's soundtrack has recently debuted.
WaterTower Music unveiled the track, which is appropriately titled 'Who's The (Bat)Man.' You can listen to the song below.
The track is performed by Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump, who - through some pretty handy voice modulating - does a pretty spot-on impression of Will Arnett's Batman.
The song's lyrics are also a particular standout, with lines such as "throw you into the asylum / with Harley Quinn / turned Two-Face / into black and blue faced / I 100% am not Bruce Wayne."
The song also samples the famous "Batman Theme", which served as the opening theme for the 1996 Batman TV series.
Stump and his bandmates have contributed songs to blockbuster franchises before, including Big Hero 6's 'Immortals', and a cover of Ray Parker Jr.'s Ghostbusters theme for the 2016 reboot. Stump also contributed a track to the Incredible Hulk rollercoaster at Universal Islands of Adventure.
The soundtrack's other single is the more upbeat pop track 'Forever', which is performed by 'Cake By The Ocean' group DNCE.
The Lego film franchise is no stranger to catchy songs, with The Lonely Island and Tegan & Sara's 'Everything is Awesome' staying stuck in people's heads long after The Lego Movie's initial release. The Lego Movie featured a Batman-centric song of its own, with the character penning the humorous 'Untitled Self Portrait' for Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks) in the film.
'Who's The (Bat)Man', and the soundtrack's other songs, are sure to tie fans over until The Lego Batman Movie premieres on February 10th, 2017.
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker's hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
Will Arnett reprises his starring role from The LEGO Movie as the voice of LEGO Batman, aka Bruce Wayne. Zach Galifianakis (Hangover films) stars as The Joker; Michael Cera (TV's Arrested Development) as the orphan Dick Grayson; Rosario Dawson (TV's Daredevil) as Barbara Gordon; and Ralph Fiennes (Harry Potter films) as Alfred.
The LEGO Batman Movie is directed by Chris McKay and produced by Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Roy Lee, who worked together on The LEGO Movie. It is written by Seth Grahame-Smith and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers, with additional screenplay material by Jared Stern & John Whittington, based on LEGO Construction Toys. Jill Wilfert, Matthew Ashton and Will Allegra serve as executive producers.
