10 Best WWE Theme Songs By Famous Artists

What the hell is a Downstait?

Disclaimer: the reason that Christian's "Just Close Your Eyes" and Randy Orton's "Burn in My Light" are not here is because Waterproof Blonde and Mercy Drive aren't famous enough. Sorry, but it's true. Also, songs that were only used once (i.e. Johnny Cash's "Ain't No Grave" for The Undertaker, AC/DC's "Back in Black" for Eric Bischoff, or Metallica's "For Whom the Bell Tolls" for Triple H) will not be featured here. Moving on...

Jim Johnston and CFO$ have written an innumerable number of unforgettable tracks for various WWE superstars over the years. Themes such as Stone Cold Steve Austin's and The Undertaker's have helped to confer immortality upon Johnston, while CFO$ have contributed masterpieces such as Shinsuke Nakamura's theme and Bobby Roode's theme.

But sometimes, a superstar is too big for WWE composers.

As such, WWE has to look to reputable outside sources, ranging from one-hit wonders to firmly-established artists. Of course, given the costly nature of rights, we don't often hear of any well-known artists making contributions to WWE's musical anthology anymore.

Still, there are several musicians who have made iconic additions to WWE's catalog over the years. Let's hear only a few.

(Honorable mentions: "Just Close Your Eyes" by Story of the Year [Christian], "Voices" by Rev Theory [Randy Orton], "I'm Coming" by Silkk The Shocker [MVP], and "Whatever" by Our Lady Peace [Chris Benoit])
