Episode 60 (ED)
Dadada (だだだ, Dadada), performed by Group Tamashi, is the first opening theme and the sixth ending theme for the anime Beelzebub. Dadada is Group Tamashi's seventh single. It was used from episode 1 through episode 10 as the opening theme, and as the ending theme for episode 60, the final episode.
The original span was to be from episode 1 to episode 12 (now episode 10), but following the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, two episodes have skipped airing, while all other releases, including the release of the next two episodes and the new opening, remained on schedule. Hence, episode 10 is the last episode to feature this opening theme.

Characters in order of appearanceEdit
Modifications following the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunamiEdit
Following the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, the opening sequence for the series was modified for Episode 10 to remove all references of earthquakes, flooding and mass graves. These modifications include the following:
- The pre-opening sequence where Oga spots Alaindelon floating down the river and opening himself up to release Beelzebub was precluded. Instead, Beelzebub is simply seen rising out of the bottom of the screen to latch onto Oga.
- Just before the title screen appears in the opening sequence, a demonic volcano is normally seen erupting and shaking the ground as Beelzebub flies out of it. This scene has been replaced with various close-up shots of Beelzebub from past episodes.
- After the scene where Oga fights a large crowd of teenagers alongside Beelzebub dancing, the two would normally be seen standing triumphantly on the pile of teenagers Oga just fought, all lying on the ground among them. These teenagers (and parts of Oga's and Beelzebub's legs) had been covered over by an alternating light and dark background rotating across the bottom half of the screen.
