From The Soundtracks: U2-"Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me"

Batman movies have had an interesting relationship with popular music over the years. Prior to Chris Nolan's entrance in to Gotham City, Batman soundtracks have had a mix of some of the best and most bizarre musical selections for any films, let alone films featuring The Dark Knight.

Over the years, I've collected every single soundtrack for a Batman film, and this week's edition stands out as one of my favorites. From the same era that brought you Zoo TV, U2 put their mark on Gotham City with a strong lead song from Batman Forever

The video is visually striking, dark, and conveys the tone of a good Batman movie. It's just an unfortunate coincidence that the film wasn't that great.. but the soundtrack was, at least!

So, pick up the song or the soundtrack if you don't already have it.
