* ConceptAlbum: Although, sadly, almost forgotten today, ''Jan & Dean Meet Batman'' was one of rock's earliest examples. Half the record is music inspired by the comic books and the [[Series/{{Batman}} TV show]], including a cover of the latter's theme; some lyrics of the songs are taken directly from ''Detective Comics'' #27. The other half details the adventures of "Captain Jan & Dean the Boy Blunder," an AffectionateParody both of TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks and also of the just-passed [[RadioDrama Golden Age of Radio]]. The cuts alternate between type, and as an added bonus, the comedy is funny and the music is catchy.

Their full names were '''William Jan Berry''' (19412004) and '''Dean [[EmbarrassingMiddleName Ormsby]] Torrence''' 1940 ). Berry's first hit was 1958's "Jennie Lee", recorded with Arnie Ginsberg as "Jan and Arnie" due to Torrance getting drafted into the U.S. Army Reserve. Berry and Torrance scored their first hit as a duo with "BabyTalk" in 1959, and kept singing while going through college at UCLA (unlike the Beach Boys) until Jan was badly injured wrecking his Corvette in 1966, suffering brain damage but retaining his genius-level intelligence, but had a comeback in the early 1970s. Berry died in 2004, but Torrence continues to tour and give interviews. Note: Discography covers only the pre-accident years.
