WWE to re-release two classic albums

Because WWE apparently doesn’t know what iTunes and Spotify are, they will be re-releasing two classic albums on April 18th 2015.

Here’s the official quote from Legacy Records:

This RSD 2015 release brings The Wrestling Album and Piledriver: The Wrestling Album 2 together as a 2LP collection, in a handsome spiral-bound jacket, celebrating a golden era in American pro wrestling mania. Originally released by the World Wrestling Federation in 1985, The Wrestling Album features tracks produced by Rick Derringer, David Wolff, Jim Steinman (Bat Out of Hell) and “Mona Flambe” (Cyndi Lauper, who contributes backing vocals on “Real American”); the album is comprised of theme music for wrestlers on the WWF (now the WWE) roster at the time. The 1987 follow-up, Piledriver: The Wrestling Album 2 showcases vocal performances from the wrestlers themselves, including “Stand Back” by Vince McMahon and “If You Only Knew” by The WWF Superstars.

So for all of you who are now full-grown with significant others (and possibly children), you can show off your skills of entering a room to the theme music of Rowdy Roddy Piper…then cry as you see your family leave forever. Now enjoy the song Piledriver by a bunch of old WWF superstars who are now mostly dead.

    Worst fucking article ever – that last paragraph ALONE deserves a public beating. Fuck you asshole, I’m sure all those dead guys families appreciate your callousness.
