Bat-Music #24 - Rocky and the Riddlers - Batman

Bat-Music #24 - Rocky and the Riddlers - Batman
Rocky and the Riddlers released their single "Flash & Crash" in 1966, with "Batman" on the b-side.  "Batman" is a irreverent garage rock novelty song, sort of like a low-budget version of "The Monster Mash." 

Sample lyrics: "He wears purple bun-huggers and rides a Batmobile, around Gotham City he's a real big wheel.  When he's not out fighting crime he can always be seen down in the Batcave reading wrestling magazines."

Beyond the Batman novelty track, however, Rocky and the Riddlers were a brutish group of garage rock proto-punks that hit you int the head like a velvet covered brick.
