The Mountain Goats have announced a new album dedicated to professional wrestling. The album is called Beat The Champ and is out on April 7th in North America.
Scott, Thought this would be some fun discussion for you and the blog. Which theme song you liked best for each wrestler:
Austin Clearly the classic is the best. When you hear the glass, it’s your ass. Eddie Guerrero I’m partial to the “Lie/Cheat/Steal” theme myself, but they were all pretty close. Rey Mysterio The one that goes “Booyaka” took me a while, but I think it’s the best one now. The energy just matches him so well. Randy Orton Has he had anything other than “Voices”? I honestly don’t remember. HHH OUR TIME. Trish Stratus The classic one. I’m not a fan of whatever she’s been using in her various comeback appearances. CM Punk I HATE that screamo bullshit, so Cult of Personality is the only choice for me. The Rock Really, he’s had a million different mixes of the same basic thing, but the one he was using by 2000 is the best combination of factors for me. Once they nailed down the “If you SMELLLLL” at the beginning, the rest was easy. Christian The operatic one with the curtain of pyro. Edge Hasn’t he really only had two? “You Think You Know Me” and “Metallingus”? Given I was a fan of the band, I’ll go with the latter.
