Do you all remember the (horrid) theme songs that WCW made for their wrestlers in the early 90's... I can recall "Steinerline" a song about two brothers named Rick and Scott... "The Man Called Sting"... and I think Johnny B Badd had one as well.

Do you all have any pleasant (painful)memories about any of the songs from that period.

I guess that the creation of those songs were to match the spifftacular theme of the Big Boss Man's Hard-time.

Anyhows... I'm sorry if this thread sucks... I was just really curious about this junk for some (very) odd reason.

Four words: "Don't Step To Ron."

Since Michael Hayes was behind most of those themes (I think) one would expect them to be better than they were. I mean, this is the same guy who gave us one of the all-time greats, "Badstreet USA"

Dude, I hope you're not dissing Big Boss Man's old theme, cause that theme was SICK. It ranks up there with Jive Soul Bro and the Million Dollar Man's as greatest themes with lyrics.

I actually didn't like any WCW themes outside of Kidman's, Eddie's old theme, and Goldberg's.

I'm pretty sure a lot of people give WCW theme music from Slam Jam in 1992 negative heat, but, for what it's worth, I liked quite a few themes from that time period.

Case in point? Even though Ricky Steamboat's theme from Slam Jam was more like a country ballad than anything, for some reason, it just rocked out to me. That's because there was a point in time on Denver's airwaves where WCW was completely absent. In fact, WCW was off TV here in the Mile High City for nearly a year before Worldwide got picked up again in early 1992. In addition to that, my household didn't get cable until the middle of '92. At any rate, for some reason, Steamboat's 'Family Man' (don't know if that was the song's name) ring entrance tune will, for me, always have a nostalgic goodness to it.

And, in addition to that, on an early mid-90's tip, I totally dug Stars and Stripes' music from September 1994 (Bagwell and The Patriot when they beat Pretty Wonderful-- Orndorff and Roma-- for the WCW World Tag Team Title).

And, in response to Enojado's reply, the Clash of the Champions event when Ron Simmons came out to "Don't Step To Ron" theme with Too Cold Scorpio is a fond memory of mine, inextricable from all my awesome memories of WCW when it was AWESOME.

"Chop Chop BAM! To the left right left to the kick to da' pin to the 123 And it's over with!"

(At least that's how I think it went!)
EDIT: How could I forget Rick Rude's "Simply Ravishing" from Slam Jam!?!? That song was sicker than a yak with jaundice! One of my all time favorite WCW entrance themes!

I remember during the whole Corporation angle, they teased a Bossman face turn after he failed Vince. He came out to confront them on the next RAW...to "Hard Time". I marked out like a FREAK~! I was so pissed when it was all a swerve...

    Speaking of themes with lyrics, wasn't there one that Sensational Sheri Martel sang on, but it wasn't for her - was it for Savage?

There was only one good thing to come out of WCW Slam Jam, and that was the AWESOME Rick Rude theme, "Simply Ravishing". That song just kicks about 10 different kinds of ass, and I encourage each and every person who is reading this to try and find that song and download it RIGHT NOW!!!!!!

But yeah, the rest sucked.

In retrospect, this one is my favourite for nothing more than the surreal opening line that claims that they "don't use drugs".

I had a hard time buying into the claim even in the early 90's, before Scott started mainlining Icopro.

HA Omega, I am actually guilty of having the Rick Rude theme on my PC, it was great, generic and 90's as it could be, but great.

I always loved the 2 Cold Scorpio music video featuring his theme song from the Slam Jam album. The corny video where he told the kids "we gonna STEP to school" was probably the greatest thing that i have ever seen.

There's no shame in having one of the greatest theme songs of all time. That and the old Demolition theme are what pro-wrestling theme-songs are all about.

And I'd be remiss not to mention that, yes, Badstreet USA was AWESOME. I totally marked out when I heard it played at WrestleMania x-seven.

The worst had to be "The Natural" Dustin Rhodes.

Well they call him the NATURALLLL (naturallll)
Natural as can be!
Well they call him the NATURALLLL (naturallll)
Yeah, that's his name!


Rick Rude's theme was pretty swank, though.

Barry Windham's old theme was pretty lame as well. It sounded like the illegitimate son of a Hank Williams Jr. tune.

Stings theme, when he was the black and white sting, between the nWo red and black and the colourful facepaint.

That was awesome music.

All Raw guys because HHH probably is going to win the belt, and the next Title feud probably will be on Raw. So far, they've switched from Raw to Smackdown and back for all the title feuds since the split. So who would they feud with champ HHH? RVD?...
