The Dark Knight gets a special soundtrack from Rdio for Batman Day

Today is not only the unofficial start of the SDCC (it’s preview night), it’s also ‘Batman Day’. And what’s a superhero without some heroic tunes to back him up?

Batman Day, of course, is the marker for the 75th anniversary for a character that’s not only become one of the best known in DC Comics’ stable, but in all of comics. To help celebrate this momentous occasion, digital music service Rdio has a very cool little playlist all planned out and ready to be listened to.

Together with American record label WaterTower Music, Rdio has assembled a massive list of music from across the Dark Knight’s appearances in movies, video games, and television. Basically, there are a few tracks on here that you’ll more than likely dig no matter which era or version of the Bat-Man you’re into.

Have a listen via the applet right here and get your Batman Day started off right. The full track list is below the players embed, should you like to see what’s on tap, and you can check out Rdio directly by clicking here.
