The Revengers: Batman & Other Super Men (1966, Songs Inspired By Batman)

"Mystery band The Revengers cut this album of spy and superhero themes in '66. Full of zany comic book energy (and its fair share of vinyl pops), it's sure to please mod go-go dancers from Gotham to MI6."

Much like The Beatles, the Batman TV series has virtually become synonymous with the 1960’s. With its sparkling use of color and odd camera angles, the series defined ‘60’s pop art, and as a result became an amazing cultural phenomenon – not only in 1966 but (to a lesser extent) in 2006 as well.

In 1966, it was a regular occurrence for a rock or pop star to make a guest appearance on the popular (and even forgotten) television series’ of the day (check out our Cameos section for further proof). Batman was no exception, and through the course of its three-year run, the program featured such disparate musical acts as Liberace, Leslie Gore, Chad & Jeremy, Johnny & The Greenmen, and the great Paul Revere & The Raiders. On the contrary, the popular (and even forgotten!) musical acts of the day tried to capitalize on the show’s meteoric success by recording songs inspired by the program, whether they be parodies, tributes, or ditties aimed at a young audience.

Mary Shelley Overdrive has a new EP available for FREE download. It's a collection of cover songs recorded during practice sessions, rehearsals, etc. during the recording of our (as yet untitled) LP.

Included on the album are covers of songs by Blue Oyster Cult, Antiseen, Black Flag, Devo, Bo Diddley, The White Stripes and The Vaselines, as well as an interpretation of the '60s Batman theme. No money should change hands for this album. Feel free to post it on your blog or share it however you choose.
