Here's the article I'm talking about... brings back a few memories for some of the old-schoolers, I'm sure. Since I only really started watching wrestling in '97, and the WWF in '99, a lot of those memories come from watching old tapes.

Still... when I read the lyrics to Honky Tonk Man's theme song, I couldn't help but smile. I'm just a honky tonk man, I'm cool, I'm cocky, I'm bad. Wait, don't turn around... WHAM! with the guitar by Kane! Ha!

Not to turn this into a "Hey, let's list everyone who sang their own theme" thread, I will say this:

NO ONE had better and worse at the same time self-done music than the three songs Jacques Rougeau was a part of.

End of non-list

It's funny because I just mentioned this to Denny (the column's author) not ten minutes ago before I read this thread here...

HE LEFT OFF WCW SLAM JAM!!!

Come on -- Don't Step To Ron; Ricky Steamboat, Family Man; Mr. Bang Bang; Big, Bad, Barry Windham; They Call Him The Natural... they were all "classics" in their own right.

That said, it was an excellent column. Brought back a lot of good (and not so good) memories.

No, no, no, it wasn't "FUBU", it was "BOFF"!

The Rougeau Brothers "All American Boys" was the best song ever. I loved that team so much, La Resistance (any of the 3 versions) can't hold a candle next to the Rougeau's (in ring and out)... Carrying around miniature American flags. "We love the USA, seriously" just pure greatness. Probably the most underrated WWF/E team in history.

Along those lines, my favorite Rougeaus promo at the time was the one that started:

Raymond: "Hi, I'm Jacques, and this is my brother Raymond."
Jacques: "I'M Jacques!"
Raymond: "Oh, right...."

Don't know why, but that STILL cracks me up some 10-plus years after the fact.

Let's not forget "Boogie Woogie Dance Hall", which was pimped on Worldwide for weeks prior to it's debut and sucked to no end... *shiver*

Honky's original music still tops my list for self-performed, followed closely by Badstreet USA.
