The Music Of DC Comics Vol. 2 Coming July 15th


The Music Of DC Comics Vol. 2 will be a varied sampling of DC’s most memorable music from it’s movie and TV properties

I’ll admit, I had no idea that Music of DC Comics: 75th Anniversary Collection was even a thing. So imagine my surprise when I saw news today that there would be a follow-up, titled The Music Of DC Comics Vol. 2!

While the first album was sort of a sampler of everything from DC comics properties from years past such as cartoons, TV shows and movies, The Music Of DC Comics Vol. 2 is a mix of past and present DC media, namely it’s various TV Shows like Flash & Gotham as well as Batman v Superman, but also things like Batman: The Brave And The Bold and even some really weird stuff like the theme from The Adventures of Superpup. Get a load of the track list for The Music Of DC Comics Vol. 2 below:

This certainly seems like an extremely varied sampling of DC music from the past seven decades or so, and obviously it’s nice that DC is even acknowledging weird stuff  and modern things along with the classics, I really imagine only the die-hardiest of DC fans will be that interested in The Music Of DC Comics Vol. 2 partially because it’s such a hodgepodge of pure randomness. If that is you though, The Music Of DC Comics Vol. 2 will be out for both digital download and CD on July 15th.
