Thanks to a fluke of iTunes, today I discovered that there was once an opportunity for enterprising "musicians" to release albums that were nothing but covers of popular wrestling themes. Most of these seem to date back to the Attitude Era - I found THREE different covers of the ICP song for The Oddities.

Let me tell you, there are some treasures here. If you're bored and you want to experience sadness and joy at the same time, search iTunes for:
- Pop Masters: The Best of Wrestling Cover-Versions
- Wrestling Fegeration Wars
- Wrestling Themes, Vol. 1
- Wrestling Themes, Vol. 2
- Wrestling Anthems

As a result of these, I had to explain concepts such as "Mr. Ass" to my wife and you know, that's a challenging thing to do.

As awful as these are, the version of Shawn Michael's theme on Volume 2 is oddly amusing.

Like a parody of some broken down 1970's country singer trying for a comeback or something.

I remember there being a bunch of rhose albums during the time in late 90s when best buy had a "wrestling soundtracks" section in their cds.

At one point I had pretty much every one of these epic covers, I proudly & sadly admit it.
