13 Songs By Pro Wrestlers That Prove They Should Stick To Their Day Jobs

- Page 1

Despite what the Hulkster told us when we were growing up, the wrestling business is only about one thing: making money.

To that end, a lot of our favorite wrestlers have branched out to try their hand at music, and as you'll see they probably should have stuck to what they know best.

1. Hulk Hogan - Hulkster in Heaven

Ringside Intel

With the Wrestling Boot Band backing him up, Hulk's solo album Hulk Rules is a challenge for even the toughest Hulkamaniacs to get through, but this song takes the cake. The enormous blonde hulk channels his soft side, but can't help ending every line like it's a question.

"I wish Hulk's love...could bring you back again?"

2. Junkyard Dog - Grab Them Cakes


If there's one single on this list that has aged badly (and really, they all have) it's the Junkyard Dog's ode to booty grabbing. His idea of a "dance move" is the second most questionable thing about The Wrestling Album. Our biggest wonder: how did this become a certified gold record?!

3. Roddy Piper - I'm Your Man

Daily Mirror

Fans of John Carpenter's They Live know that "Hot Rod" has acting chops to match his wrestling skills. So could he be a triple threat? Sadly, no. The best you can say about this Monkees-soundalike pop tune is it's the most listenable song on this list, but that's damning it with faint praise.

4. 3 Count - Can't Get You Out Of My Heart

The wrestling world has never met a fad it won't capitalize on, and that included 90s boy bands like NSYNC. Future superstars including Shane Helms and Shannon Moore cut their teeth as part of this WCW gimmick, which proves that even boy bands had some talent.

5. Bret Hart - Never Been A Right Time To Say Goodbye

The Hitman probably felt he was channeling Patrick Swayze or Barry White with this sing-talking slow jam, but it comes off closer to William Shatner reading his love poetry over the end credit song from a Super Nintendo game.

6. Randy Savage - Be A Man

Bleacher Report

The title track from Savage's 2003 rap album proves he never really got over his feud with Hulk Hogan. We don't want to speak ill of the dead, but it's hard hearing the Macho Man brag about being a movie star because he was in Spider-Man for five minutes.

'Growing Pains' Stars Reunite To Reveal Their Favorite Memories From The Show We All Loved

Watching Growing Pains was one of the highlights of our week when we were kids. The Seaver family meant a lot to us, and it was such a sad day when it ended. Alan Thicke was the amazing patriarch of the family, but it was the kids that we all cared about. Kirk Cameron's character, Mike, was stealing hearts, Tracy Gold's character, Carol, was inspiring students, and Jeremy Miller's character, Ben, was causing trouble, but we loved him anyway. Recently, the three iconic and original Seaver children got together to share some of their favorite moments, and it makes us


Steve From 'Blue's Clues' Wants The Thinking Chair Back, And He's Willing To Fight For It

Hosting a kid's show is probably pretty fun, but I assume it gets a little bit tedious. I mean, even Sherry Lewis must have gotten annoyed by "The Song That Never Ends" after a while. It's a lot of repetition, and reviewing a lot of really basic skills, but I guess seeing the smiles on all those kids faces makes it all worth it. Blue's Clues was one of the biggest kids shows around, and millions of kids would sing along with the "Mail Time" song multiple times a day (much to their parent's annoyance). The host of the show


Fox Really Wants A 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' Reboot, And Honestly We'd Rather Get Staked

Bad news everyone, the reboot train is still chugging along, picking up unwilling and unwanted passengers along the way. At first the reboots were cute. It was nice to have those little reminders of our past. Sure, tell me what happened to the Tanner sisters, I'll admit I was curious. Or remake my favorite Disney movies with real humans instead of cartoons, because I can very easily ignore those and just watch my old VHS versions a hundred times. I know I shouldn't be too precious with the past, because a lot of things we grew up watching were remakes


There's A New MTV Clothing Line And We Can't Wait To Get Our Hands On It

Hands up if you spent your entire childhood glued to the TV watching all the videos on MTV. Pretty much all of you right? Perfect. Watching MTV was the best. You got to see all of the coolest music videos, which meant that you knew all the best songs, all the newest dance moves, and all the rad styles. As MTV evolved over the years, it kind of lost that magic that made it the go-to location for awesome music, and instead has turned into a reality TV station. Really the only reality show we wanted to watch was The
