His older brother is director Richard Elfman.
Did not return to provide the musical score for Spider-Man 3 (2007), citing creative differences with director Sam Raimi over the previous film. He instead, provided the score for Charlotte's Web (2006), which ironically is about a spider who uses her talents to do good.

He and Howard Shore have both formed hit bands (Oingo Boingo and The Blues Brothers), both scored films for Peter Jackson (The Frighteners (1996) and The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) and others), both scored films for Tim Burton (Elfman has scored everything but Ed Wood (1994), which Shore scored), and both scored a Hannibal Lecter film (Red Dragon (2002) and The Silence of the Lambs (1991)).
