20 Greatest Ever Superhero TV Themes

3. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

The Power Rangers reboot movie has already significantly changed the character’s suits, but they had better not mess up this theme which was part of the soundtrack to so many of our childhoods. It’s one of several things the film has to include.

 

2. Spider-Man 60s

It’s official – with three entries on this list, Spider-Man is the most musical superhero. Who knew? This one is the tune that set the bar for them all, though. It’s an earworm and it also handily answered any questions viewers might have had about the webhead.

 

1. Batman

They certainly knew how to do superhero theme songs in the sixties. Alongside Spidey’s classic number, Batman got his own timeless tune for this wonderfully campy series. A lesson for all would-be composers here: all you need to make your piece memorable is a lot of ‘na-na-na’s.

  1. Well TMNT and the 90s Batman were my shows as a child and those themes have always stuck with me. I have to say I far prefer the Justice League Unlimited theme those Justice league was rather heroic. I had totally forgot about spectacular spiderman that was such a great theme. This really had been a trip down memory lane for me. It’s a great list and I’m in two minds for 66 batman as number one. It makes sense it’s iconic the world over but other themes mean more and stir more emotion in me. I shan’t argue it’s place for legacy alone but it has me thinking.

    1. Hey Cameron, thanks for reading. I had completely forgotten about the Justice League Unlimited theme – thanks for reminding me of that! Yeah, I put 60s Batman top because, as you say, it is so iconic. Other ones are more personal to me on a nostalgic level.

      1. My pleasure was a great read! I’m still trying to think of shows I’d add but you’ve covered all the greats. I really need to find my copies of earth’s mightiest heroes such a great series and an awesome theme. Why they edited it in the second season is a mystery to me. A good theme sets you up for the adventure, ruing an already great them with a bad edit job and voice over takes you out of the happy moment.
