Top 5 greatest WrestleMania theme songs
WrestleMania is less than a week away and it is time to get excited. Along with the grandeur and spectacle of WWE's premier event, the sounds play a big part in making WrestleMania a memorable affair. The soundtrack of a particular show could shape its fortunes in a few ways. A well-chosen song would have a positive effect on the build-up to the show, playing a part in video packages or live performances in the stadium itself.
Some songs are a great representative of the product that WWE is putting on at the time, demonstrating the issues between various superstars in seamless finesse. They also lead the fans' memories of a particular WrestleMania and their experiences of it. The theme song of WrestleMania must be a beacon of excitement for the entire WWE universe, in anticipation for a big match, or the entire show as a whole.
Here are the five greatest theme songs in WrestleMania history. But first, here are a couple of honorable mentions.
- "Superstar" by Saliva (WrestleMania 18)
- "I Dare You" by Shinedown (WrestleMania 22)
- "Light It Up" by Rev Theory (WrestleMania 24)
#5. "Monster" by Imagine Dragons (WrestleMania 30)
Imagine Dragons have provided the occasional soundtrack for certain WWE events and documentaries, but the best contributions they made were for WrestleMania 30.
For months, fans followed the story of Daniel Bryan, chanting "YES" at every show across the country, which forced WWE's hand to alter their WrestleMania main event plans to include Bryan in the WWE World Heavyweight title picture.
His quest for gold was the main story heading into the show and it was excellently demonstrated in the above video package, which tells the story in a way that not only brought it into perspective but added an emotional edge as well.
The lyrics to the song also fit in perfectly to the story, especially with Daniel Bryan and his Yes Movement becoming a bigger "monster" than it had any right to be. And despite the fact that the main theme song was actually "Celebrate" by Kid Rock, this song is the one that is most synonymous to WrestleMania 30. This video package was genuinely one of the best that WWE has ever produced, with "Monster" being a huge reason why it worked so well.
