Top 10 Best WWE Theme Songs

A killer entrance theme song is way more than just background music - it's the soundtrack that amps up the crowd and lets everyone know their favorite Superstar is about to throw down.

Think about it: the second you hear those first few notes, you know exactly who's coming. The sinister sounds that signal The Undertaker. The glass shattering for Stone Cold. Maybe it's even the triumphant blast of trumpets for John Cena.

Some of these songs just get stuck in your head, becoming as iconic as the wrestlers themselves. So, out of all those legendary theme songs, which ones make you want to jump to your feet?
The Top Ten
1 Randy Orton - Voices

Someone says the Undertaker's song gives chills. What, are you 4 years old? Be mature enough to listen and understand the meaning of the lyrics, and then you'll know why Voices is topping the chart. Being a fan is one thing, but trying to prove what you think is right is a whole different thing. All the doctors are diseased, and the preachers are all sinners. They talk to me.

"I Hear Voices" is one of my favorite theme songs ever. Every time I listen to "I hear voices in my head," my childhood memories come back. Randy Orton is my favorite WWE superstar ever. I am a huge fan of The Viper. This song is only suitable for "The Viper," "The Legend Killer," or "Apex Predator."

Finally, Randy Orton is one of the most overrated top wrestlers in history. This name is epic in WWE.

2 Edge - Metalingus

Metalingus really fits the name of the song well. It's a burst of energy that could get anyone hyped. Imagine being the guy who gets to come out to that song through a cloud of smoke as the pyro blasts off behind you.

Edge definitely made the right call to bring this song as his entrance when the band was just starting out. It could be argued that Edge helped bring Alter Bridge to a larger audience. Years later, the band is not only going strong but has been one of alternative metal's best acts in recent years. Fortress has been widely acclaimed, and The Last Hero has charted in the top 10 on the Billboard 200.

If you enjoy Metalingus, you'll enjoy Alter Bridge. And if you haven't been keeping up with WWE recently, you may be glad to hear that whenever Edge makes a special appearance, he still comes out to this tune even over a decade later.

UPDATE: He's back! Through a sheer miracle of modern surgeries and maintaining his health, he somehow defied the odds. He had to retire in 2011 due to a previous neck injury but returned to action at the start of 2020.

3 Triple H - The Game

The recent Pop/Rock music-fed PG WWE generation knows heavy metal only because of The Game by Motorhead! This song is a masterpiece as it encapsulates Triple H for what he is. It's not like other theme songs that are selected randomly, except for some top stars in WWE. Voices is good, but not as strong as The Game. Sorry, Rev Theory, but you just can't play The Game with Voices like that.

It's Motorhead. What else really needs to be said? The Game fits Triple H perfectly and always gets me hyped up before a match. Triple H also has the greatest entrance of all time.

4 CM Punk - Cult of Personality

This was my favorite song before it was CM Punk's entrance. But then my favorite wrestler got my favorite song. However, it's not for that reason alone. The reason it is the best ever is because it really does solidify Punk. It is him, he is the cult of personality. No theme has ever completely 100% got it spot on like this song did.

This should be number 3. I loved this song even before it was CM Punk's theme. *Possible unknown spoilers here* But after the scandal in AEW, it reminds me of what happened with that. I still like it though.

5 CM Punk - This Fire Burns

This is the best rock song ever used by WWE - a real rock song. No offense to Motorhead. They are good, but to match Triple H, they built it slow. Maybe it was good ten years ago, but not now. So, finally, Punk rules.

It fit perfectly for Punk, whether he was a heel or a face. It's such a shame he changed to that Cult of Personality song, and even more of a shame that he left WWE.

At the first part of this song, it brings out the evil in you, but then it gets deep and you feel like the most inspirational badass on the planet.

6 Chris Jericho - Break the Walls Down

Cool rock song. I love the countdown, then the pyro. Later the lyrics come in. It's a kind of slow rock tune that's awesome!

My favorite WWE song isn't really a WWE song. It's the New World Symphony for Imperium. Though no NXT UK songs are on the list, my second favorite WWE theme is Jericho's Break the Walls Down. If you want to talk about rock WWE songs, Break the Walls Down is the first phrase that comes out of my mouth.

Fits the wrestler perfectly, and the Titantron entrance complements it perfectly.

7 Christian - Just Close Your Eyes

"Deceived by my eyes, and all I was told I should see, opinions not mine, the person they taught me to be." Honestly, I'm not a huge Christian fan, but this song kicks ass and could easily be played on the radio as a standalone song. This song is really deep. It talks about shutting out everything that people tell you to do, or say, or be, and finding your own path in life instead of one that others have paved for you.

I think it's because Christian isn't one of the top wrestlers that this song isn't that popular. But I think if a big artist performed it, or if Edge and Christian swapped songs, it would shine on the billboards. This song is so amazing. It reflects pain and shame and how the sufferer has tried and succeeded in making it. "In the darkness, light will take you to the other side" - just awesome.

8 Kane - Slow Chemical

This was such a good theme for Kane. It was so sad when they got rid of it.

9 The Rock - Electrifying

Each of The Rock's entrance themes is exceptional, awesome, and exciting. It gives me enough energy and inspiration. It greatly matches his character, in all the latest versions. I liked the old versions too. But his Hollywood theme was unbeatable. The Rock's theme is the best in the entire WWE history.

Rocky rocks! The song is so addictive and makes me want to listen to it every day. And it really doesn't matter if the song is number 1 or not. The Rock in our hearts is always number 1.

Wow, The Rock is the most electrifying sports entertainer ever in WWE history. It doesn't matter if his song is number 1 or not.

10 Hulk Hogan - Real American

I've been a fan of Hogan's since childhood. His Real American theme song is truly American. If you don't like it, then you're not a Real American.

This is THE song that gets crowds pumped every single time it's heard. Hulkamania is immortal because of this song!

Anyone who doesn't vote for this didn't grow up in the '80s!

The Contenders
11 Sheamus - Written in My Face

The Great White indeed has the best theme song in WWE history. He is one of the best wrestlers in WWE history. He is one of the best young wrestlers born. He has the best moves in WWE. He is the most dangerous superstar in WWE. He has defeated stars like John Cena, Triple H, and Randy Orton.

This song captures the best angry image of Sheamus. It provokes the burning passion within every one of us. It brings out the self-pride that rejuvenates me to reach my goal.

This song is great. However, his 2015 song is so much better. I happen to like Sheamus now, but even if you hate him and/or find him boring, it's pretty hard to deny that his new song is awesome.

12 The Undertaker - Rest In Peace

The most soothing of the WWE theme songs, this might be the best-known song among WWE fans. You hear those first few notes and immediately know who's arriving.

That gong and chorus sound captivate fans like no other! It's chilling yet very beautiful at the same time.

His music is a moment you just stop and watch as the legend slowly walks to the ring!

13 John Cena - Word Life

This song is totally my style. I've got it on CD and I know some of the rap. It's 100 percent better than My Time Is Now. Word life rules. It's my favorite theme ever!

Word life, basic thuganomics. WrestleMania, Undertaker in the ring. So you think you're untouchable.

Oh, please, this song is a thousand times better than My Time Is Now.

14 Brock Lesnar - Here Comes the Pain

His theme fits him perfectly. He doesn't have a fictional gimmick. It's just a reminder to let people know Lesnar is all about destruction and pure domination.

Best theme song in WWE, just like him - like a beast.

Hell yeah! This theme song rocks.

15 Rob Van Dam - One of a Kind

It should be in the top ten greatest theme songs, after Benoit and Bret Hart.

This needs to be number 1.
My top 6:

1. RVD - One of a Kind
2. Randy Orton - Voices
3. Christian - Just Close Your Eyes
4. John Cena - My Time Is Now
5. AJ Styles - Phenomenal
6. Undertaker - Rest in Peace

16 Stone Cold - I Won't Do What You Tell Me

Crowd silence. Glass shatters. Crowd goes insane.

I can't imagine a glass-shattering noise without a massive pop.

I love when the glass shatters and then Stone Cold comes in the ring fired up.

17 Evolution - Line in the Sand

The song you want to play at your funeral.

18 Jeff Hardy - No More Words

You knew when you heard this that people would start flipping out.

I'm literally listening to this right now! It's freakin' amazing!

It should be number 1!

Endeverafter truly did an amazing job on this piece of art.

19 Shinsuke Nakamura - The Rising Sun

Shinsuke has an amazing theme that gets stuck in your head instantly! In fact, this song is one of the main reasons why he's so popular with fans and why his entrance is seen as one of the best. The Rising Sun is a masterpiece that makes you feel pumped up and inspired. It seems like it would fit in perfectly as part of the soundtrack of a movie.

Shinsuke's debut might be the most epic in history, thanks to this theme. It's a shame he didn't become a top-tier main-eventer.

This song is so catchy! It is also perfect for Naka's personality.

20 Batista - I Walk Alone

Definitely a great entrance with two machine guns and a great soundtrack that clearly says he is a lonely superstar in WWE (I Walk Alone). He is one of the most intense and great superstars of all time.

One of my favorite choruses in WWE. The slow and powerful first line followed by the quick jabs from lines two and three are great.

Such a sick track. It fits Dave so well!

21 Randy Orton - Burn In My Light

Miles better than his current one. This was catchy as hell and suited him perfectly. Voices is about as subtle as a brick when it comes to tying it into his character. This didn't feel forced at all.

Best song in the history of WWE/WWF. It just makes you feel epic and it should be first, ahead of Voices. Legend Killer forever.

It may not fit the Viper gimmick, but this song is superior to Voices. When you hear it, get ready for a lot of pyro and one-handed RKOs.

22 D-Generation X - Are You Ready?

It's the in-your-face, don't-tell-me-what-to-do '90s attitude that makes this leitmotif awesome.

The best stable in history wouldn't be as good without such an awesome entrance theme.

23 Kane - Out of the Fire
24 Chris Benoit - Whatever

He's such an unforgettable wrestler but an unforgivable human. Sure, he destroyed his own legacy and is controversial. However, he had a great theme and you can't forget the Crippler Crossface. He made every move look painful and kept the hype alive. Personally, I get sad every time I watch old highlights and they say "future Hall of Famer," knowing the outcome now. RIP Nancy, Daniel, Eddy, and Chris. The dead deserve rest. Probably the best theme on this list, though it's unfortunate that OLP won't perform this song anymore.

25 Vince McMahon - No Chance in Hell
