Daredevil: The Album is a soundtrack album released on February 4, 2003, by Wind-up Records for the movie Daredevil, starring Ben Affleck.[2] All songs were previously unreleased, and some songs appeared on later releases. Unlike later soundtrack releases, many songs from Daredevil: The Album notably appeared in the film.

The album was one of the first collaborations between Marvel Comics and Wind-up Records, which would continue with the releases of The Punisher, Fantastic Four and the Daredevil sequel/spin-off Elektra. Three singles were released from the album: Fuel's "Won't Back Down", the Calling's "For You", and Evanescence's "Bring Me to Life". Music videos were also made for the 3 singles plus 3 other tracks from the album "Fade Out/In" by Paloalto, "Caught in the Rain" by Revis and "My Immortal" by Evanescence

One of the singles from the movie, "Bring Me to Life" by Evanescence featuring Paul McCoy, won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance at the 46th Grammy Awards.[3][4][5] The song was nominated in the category for Best Rock Song at the same event but lost to "Seven Nation Army" by The White Stripes. "Bring Me to Life" won an award for Choice Music Rock Track at the Teen Choice Awards in 2004.[6] At the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards the band was nominated in the category for Best New Artist for "Bring Me to Life".[7] The song was nominated at the 2003 MTV Europe Music Awards for Best Song.[8][9] At the 14th annual Billboard Music Awards, it won the award for Soundtrack Single of the Year.[10] The song ranked number 69 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 2000s.[11]

Three songs were omitted from release on the album: N.E.R.D.'s "Lapdance", Dara Shindler's "Faraway", and House of Pain's "Top o' the Morning to Ya".
