While everyone's opinion is valid, I just can't understand how one note for eight minutes can be listenable. Seriously, "Why So Serious?" is noise. No melody. If I could put a siren on for the exact amount of time, maybe that would have been my credentials to score The Dark Knight. Christopher Nolan just doesn't give a crap about music in film. But, of course, if you found it enjoyable, that means it does appeal to a certain audience.
