The evolution of Batman music epically recreated with a piano and cello

The Piano Guys made this epic video that traces the 50 year history of music in Batman using a piano and a cello. Oh and of course three different Batmobiles. What's awesome is how much each era they go through musically looks like the Batman movie of its time.


The shot at the end with all the Batmobiles together made me swoon. The Piano Guys write:

Holy hemiola, Batman! 50 years of music and film all rolled together in front of the cars that have become icons of super hero history. This is one of those projects we've wanted to do from the very beginning of The Piano Guys. We love super heroes, the dramatic music that has brought them to life, and the vivid films that have made them legends. We used piano, cello, handheld cameras, a radio controlled helicopter, and some scrappy special effect techniques in the most creative ways possible to emulate the three epic eras of one of the greatest super heroes ever created: BATMAN!

Lot of iconic music here but Danny Elfman's Batman ('89) score will always be the definitive Batman theme for me.
