Most intimidating song ever
Also, give it up for Bocephus, who along with Johnny Cash and DMX is the only artist to make this list twice. And now, if you'll excuse me, I feel an uncontrollable urge to go fight something.And all these years, I thought Rick Derringer's millions were coming solely from "Rock n' Roll Hoochie Koo." But no..was getting those sweet, sweet Hulk Hogan royalty checks the whole time. Tom Lawlor, or as I like to call him, the Pablo Picasso of the UFC entrance song. How about Olivia Newton John's magnum opus, "Physical," which The Filthy Mauler walked out to at UFC 139. Whatever the selection, Lawlor knows how to use his entrance song to get the crowd on his side. If you've never heard the full version of "Real American" before, close your office door or throw a tarp over your cubicle, sit back and indulge yourself. Nothing else better embodies The Spirit of the Gladiator. When the venerable and careworn UFC Gladiator finally slouched away to that big focus group in the sky, his memorial service was depressingly bereft of mourners. I can't help but think of all those good years, all those gallons of adrenaline, all those members of Stemm who now have no readily discernible means of feeding themselves.
But the more you listen, the more you realize you kind of like where its head is at.
Some people believe this song to be a little past its prime.
But when Forrest comes bounding toward the cage with this rollicking barstool screamer in the background and everyone shouting along at the tops of their lungs, it could be the most underrated entrance of any era.
But it's surprisingly effective as an intimidation tool, because it bestows the engagement with the feel of a reckoning.
It's like he's saying, "I apologize in advance for the fact that I'm about to either kill you or die trying."Apparently the Nogueira brothers know their music.
