Background and release
Scrubs proved to be successful and "Superman" was later issued on the first show soundtrack and as a promotional single. Around the same time, in September 2002, the song was released on Lazlo Bane's second studio album All the Time in the World.
Versions and structure
The soundtrack version of "Superman", both Scrubs' and The Tao of Steve, has duration 3:38 and omits the intro count-in which is present on the album All the Time in the World, making the duration of the latter 3:43.
The single version of the song also doesn’t have the count-in, but it is 5 seconds shorter than the soundtrack version due to slightly faster speed.
Zach Braff directed the song's music video. It shows behind-the-scenes footage from the Scrubs set and features several of the show's cast members, including Zach Braff, Sarah Chalke and Ken Jenkins. The video was filmed at the abandoned North Hollywood Medical Center, which doubles as the show's location Sacred Heart Hospital.
A small video productions company, Clay Cow Productions, made their own music video for the song, which was praised by Chad Fischer. The video illustrates the lyrics of the song with plasticine characters and set.
Superman was ranked #2 at the 2004 Just Plain Folks Music Awards in the category College Rock Song.
The song was covered by The Blanks, who played members of Ted's Band, The Worthless Peons, on Scrubs, and was released as the opening track of the band's debut album Riding the Wave in 2004. Their version was also featured as the outro to the final episode of the Scrubs' eighth season, "My Finale", during the run of the blooper reel.
