List Rules Vote up your favorite soundtracks from superhero movies.

What's a movie without a soundtrack? Even films that have all the eye candy and visual splendor of a superhero movie would lack heart without a great soundtrack to score every tender moment and awesome stunt.

Whether it's a series of songs that perfectly fit the tone of the film (The Crow), a haunting and iconic score (The Dark Knight), or a mix of classic songs that fit in with the story and adds comedy and nostalgia (Guardians of the Galaxy), no matter what, you need that perfect blend to bring your ears into the movie as much as your eyes.

Some superhero movie soundtracks have really knocked it out of the park, and the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack even became the first soundtrack from a superhero movie to hit number one album on all Billboard charts! So let's take a look back at the best superhero movie soundtracks of all time. Make sure to vote up your favorite soundtrack from these superhero flicks.

Hans Zimmers powerhouse Joker theme (and the score during any of his appearances) are especially unique in their chaos and strength (as they should be with a character like that.) Try and listen to Why So Serious without getting chills.
