‘The Batman’ Trailer Features Nirvana’s ‘Something in the Way’

The new Batman trailer with Twilight’s Robert Pattinson features a revamped cinematic take on Nirvana’s ‘Something in the Way’, which closed out their ever-classic album Nevermind. Kurt Cobain played this song during his MTV Unplugged performance, but The Batman trailer rendition becomes a massive arrangement with piano, hard percussion, and of course dramatic build.

Sam Kesler of UDiscoverMusic writes, “In the song, he sings, “Underneath the bridge/The tarp has sprung a leak/And the animals I’ve trapped/Have all become my pets.” Composer Michael Giacchino added some piano and strings to better suit the song for a blockbuster release, but maintaining the vocals and some of the original guitar. The dark, moody lyrics complement the edginess of the trailer, and how Bruce Wayne has come to be depicted, as a tortured superhero often at odds with his own demons.”
