In the genre of Music Categories the Super-Hero song is not as prolific as most. But there are a surprising number of bands who do them, some well, others not so much.

Not surprisingly, Superman is the focus of many of these recordings including:

REM - Superman - Which is actually a cover of The Clique - Superman
Flaming Lips - Waiting for Superman
Crash Test Dummies - Superman's Song
The Kinks - (Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman

among some odd ones are this tribute to Superman's Pal:
The Spin Doctors - Jimmy Olsenโ€™s Blues
and this obscure gem: Ides Of March - Superman
Kara Zor-El isn't left out: XTC - That's Really Super, Supergirl
and this banned tune that I figure y'all can handle: Donovan- Superlungs My Supergirl

Then there's this freaking awesome effort by the Odd One: Weird Al's Ode to a Superhero
and the Godfathers of Punk (R.I.P.) take on the Web-Head: The Ramones - Spiderman
While we're on Spidey, if you have never heard this you simply must click on the link. You're welcome. Wesley Willis - I Whipped Spiderman's Ass

This is a classic tribute to Batman's archenemy: The Ventures - Joker´s Wild

No one is safe, even Ghost Rider has gotten into the groove with these two songs by: Rollins Band - Ghost Rider [Full Version] (there is a shorter version but this one is too bad-@$$ to not put on here). Which is ostensibly a cover of: Suicide - Ghost Rider

This is a bizarre one that I had never heard of until I began researching this topic: Paul McCartney and Wings - Magneto And Titanium Man

Someone not from the Big 2 - Flash Gordon: Flash - Queen

This tune is somewhat controversial: The Kinks - Plastic Man - HeHe, they said "bum"!

Heck, Joe Satriani did this: Joe Satriani - Surfing With The Alien 1987 (FULL ALBUM) - John Byrne says he never received any royalties for his artwork being used but somehow I think he will be alright.

Here's further proof that the Hulk is just misunderstood: The Traits - Nobody Loves The Hulk

Another non-major super dude: Link Ray - Green Hornet

Holy Melody, Batman - It's the Orchestra Gang!

I know that this is only the tip of the iceberg and I have barely scratched the surface. Please add to this compendium of Super Hero Theme Songs!

Just a fantastic cover by this Rock and Roll Guitar Legend

Link Wray - Batman

And. Oh My God I can't believe I forgot - Black Sabbath - Iron Man - Yes, I know that technically this isn't about Tony Stark's alter ego but c'mon, this definitely deserves to be here.

Coolio -Im In Love With Mary Jane
The lyrics are somewhat hazy but I am about 420% sure that this song is written from the perspective of Peter Parker and it is about one Mary Jane Watson-Parker. Straight Face
