Danny Elfman Net Worth: Danny Elfman is an American composer, record producer and actor who has a net worth of $75 million dollars. Danny Elfman was born May 29, 1953 in Amarillo, Texas. He is best known as the lead singer and songwriter for the rock band Oingo Boingo (1976-95) and later for scoring music for television and film and composing the theme song for the animated hit show The Simpsons, as well as the 1989 Batman movie theme. He is also well-known for his work in collaboration with director Tim Burton, for whom Danny Elfman composed one of the most distinctive bodies of work in contemporary film music, bringing his talents to a dark fantasy world populated by superheroes, monsters and freaks. The son of novelist Blossom Elfman, he was raised in Los Angeles, California and later relocated to France in 1971 with his brother Richard, where Danny joined a theatrical group. Elfman subsequently moved to Africa, later returning to the U.S. where he was reunited with brother Richard, who had by then directed the 1980 film The Forbidden Zone and asked Danny to compose the score. Assembling a band dubbed the Mystic Knights of Oingo Boingo, Elfman recorded the movie's soundtrack. The band's name was later abbreviated to simply Oingo Boingo and later earned a significant cult following during the New Wave era. It was in 1985 that Elfman met then-fledgling filmmaker Tim Burton. After collaborating on the score to the hit Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, Burton and Elfman reunited frequently in years to come, with Elfman composing the music to later Burton projects including Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Mars Attacks! and the Grammy-winning Batman. In 1993, Elfman also scored the Burton-produced Nightmare Before Christmas, dubbing the vocals of the animated musical's lead character Jack Skellington. Elfman also scored a number of other features, most of them strange fables such as Darkman, Dick Tracy, Army of Darkness and The Frighteners. In 1997, he composed the music for summer blockbuster Men in Black.
