Bruce is smart enough to know this. But, even more importantly:

* [[/index]]''Music/JanAndDean Meet Batman'': At the height of their fame, the SurfRock duo of Jan Berry and Dean Torrence approached National Periodical Publications (as DC was then known) about doing a licensed (i.e. copyright-compliant) album based both on the comic books and the TV show, which was also at the height of its popularity. NPP gave its blessing, and this strong contender for the title of "Weirdest ConceptAlbum Ever" was born. Half the record is music inspired by the comic books and the show, including a cover of the latter's theme. The other half details the adventures of "Captain Jan & Dean the Boy Blunder," an AffectionateParody both of UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks -- or, from their perspective, the current time -- and also of the just-passed [[RadioDrama Golden Age of Radio]]. The cuts alternate between type, and the comedy pieces are as goofy as you'd expect; besides ribbing many of the tropes listed here, our heroes have abilities like [[SuperBreath Power Breath]] and "Instant Distance Mental Powers" that, [[TeleporterAccident when their intended destination is the Surf City Circus, land them in the Jersey City Surplus Store]] via a literal WrongTurnAtAlbuquerque. However, the Bat-music cuts are played almost completely straight, or at least as straight as the era allowed; some lyrics are taken directly from ''Detective Comics'' #27.
