KAPOW! Here’s Eddie Vedder and daughter Harper, age 7, covering the classic Batman theme. It’s a straight-ahead, surf-guitar rendition of Neal Hefti’s catchy intro from the ’60s TV show starring Adam West, and it’s quite darling.

The cover was first heard on a SiriusXM Pearl Jam Radio segment featuring an interview with writer and Pete Townshend biographer Mark Wilkerson. It’s not Harper’s first credit: She and her dad also recorded “The Traveler,” a short song heard at the end of Cameron Crowe’s 2015 film Aloha. Look out, Harper: before you know it, your dad will be breaking these out in front of your high-school friends.
