    As a kid, how many of you ran around with a fake cape singing the Adam West-era Batman theme tune or pretended to fly while humming the theme from Superman? Quite a few, I bet.

    Well, now you can all run around your apartment with the your favorite superhero theme blaring from your iPod dock, as DC Comics has announced plans to release some well-known and some not-so-well-known theme songs in a 31-track compilation album called DC’s The Music Of DC Comics: 75th Anniversary Collection (via Onion AV Club).

    The album goes as far back as 1941 to “Superman March”, and most of the DC properties you’d expect are featured here from Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman to Aquaman, Swamp Thing, and the Teen Titans. While not the definitive theme tune collection, this album gets pretty close, and many of the tracks included have not been available previously. The album is due for release on September 28th.
