What song would you use in the comeback video package for a wrestler? We've had U2's Beautiful Day for Triple H and Coldplay's Clocks for Kurt Angle.

I'm thinking along the lines of Edge's return and what song should be used to hype him up in those video packages.

Also, if they were to do a new set of those Desire videos, what would be a good song to use? Speaking of that, I wish they'd show that Chris Jericho one again where he totally heels it the whole way through with his comments.

Probably not what you had in mind, but I think for a short layoff, when a face was put out of action by a ginormous heel (ie, Lesnar), that "Monster" by Abandoned Pools would work well. Too bad it's not INTENSE and ANGRY-SOUNDING, because if it was, WWE woulda already used it.

I always wondered about WWE's use of the U2 and Coldplay music....did they have to get permission from the artists for that, since I find it hard to believe that either of those bands would sign their music off to pro wrestling.

"When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, 1997

I've wondered about this too. For the past few years, I've pegged everything music-related to WWE as them now being linked to Viacom-MTV. I'm sure those same bands aren't exactly throwing a party when their music is playing as the Road Rules motorhome is storming down the road, full of many fun diseases.

Anyway, I'm sure somebody else can provide more information... somebody.

In most cases, no, they do not need to get permission from the artists.

They need to get permission from the record companies, who generally hold the copyrights to the recordings. Often the artist maintains rights over lyrics and sheet music, but not always.

For an Edge return I'm thinking maybe Red Hot Chili Peppers "Scartissue"

As for a new set of Desire video's, I say we go OLD school and go to Survivor's "Eye of the tiger" :p

The Survivor song would be cool to use in a video to hype Hogan's comeback for WM XX (which you know has to happen).

That was my main problem with Kane. He selfishly worked that program and buried poor old Pete, knowing damn well that Rose would never be able to get his “heat” back.
