Holy Musical B@man! is a Batman parody musical by StarKid Productions. It was written by Matt Lang and Nick Lang; music and lyrics by Nick Gage and Scott Lamps. It was performed March 22-25, 2012, at the Hoover-Leppen Theatre in Chicago, IL, and released to YouTube on April 13, 2012.
The show runs approximately 108 minutes in 13 videos and features 9 original songs. As the title implies, it is mostly about Batman and Robin, though it includes superheroes and villains from the entire DC Comics universe, including Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and Captain Marvel (as well as one rogue Marvel character, Spider-Man). Its main antagonist is an original villain named Sweet Tooth.

Just after the video was released, StarKid attended and presented a panel at C2E2 in-character as their Holy Musical B@man! roles. Dylan Saunders, who played Scarecrow, could not make it, so his place was filled in by Sean Astin.
Mashable columnist Proma Khosla (a previous StarKid member and fan) wrote a glowing review for the show in 2017 which suggested that Holy Musical B@man was the precursor to The Lego Batman Movie, citing that the Lego movie "had been done before - by actual humans."
