5 Songs That Should Be the New WWE Raw Theme Song

1 of 6

    Back in November 2009, Nickelback's "Burn it to the Ground" was introduced as the theme song for Monday Night Raw.

    Does anyone else think it's time to change Raw's theme song? Does anyone think a new theme song should be introduced at the 1,000th episode of Raw on July 23?

    Yes? Yes? That's good.

    With that said, let's take a look at five songs that should replace "Burn it to the Ground" as the new theme song of Monday Night Raw starting July 23.

    Note: Keep in mind that this list only consists of songs I'm familiar with and what I think would be good songs for Raw. What do I mean by good? By good, I mean energizing and fitting.

    If you can think of any songs, please share them! 

"Scream" by Avenged Sevenfold

2 of 6

    Artist: Avenged Sevenfold

    Song: "Scream"

    Album: Avenged Sevenfold

    Year: 2007

    "Scream" by Avenged Sevenfold has a nice, heavy intro riff and a catchy chorus—two things that could make for a good Raw theme song. 

"All Nightmare Long" by Metallica

3 of 6

    Artist: Metallica

    Song: "All Nightmare Long"

    Album: Death Magnetic

    Year: 2008

    "All Nightmare Long" was actually used as the 2008 No Mercy pay-per-view theme song.

    It has a great intro and an even better chorus. I wonder how much Metallica would charge WWE to use this song.

"Cinema" (Skrillex Remix) by Benny Benassi Ft. Gary Go

4 of 6

    Artist: Benny Benassi

    Song: "Cinema" (Skrillex remix)

    Album: Electroman

    Year: 2011

    "Cinema" (Skrillex Remix) was used in the launch promo of the WWE Network.

    It's not rock or metal, but if you ask me, it is energizing enough to be the Raw theme song.

"A Warrior's Call" by Volbeat

5 of 6

    Artist: Volbeat

    Song: "A Warrior's Call"

    Album: Beyond Hell/Above Heaven

    Year: 2011

    From Loudwire:

    ‘A Warrior’s Call’ is an anthem contained on their (Volbeat) latest album ‘Beyond Hell / Above Heaven’ and it’s bursting with spastic, unharnessed, punk rock energy, while the low, throaty vocals roar and thunderous, near-tribal percussion booms throughout the song.

    The song was written for Danish boxer Mikkel Kessler and even starts out with the line ‘Let’s get ready to rumble!’ There’s even a battle cry of“Fight! Fight! Fight!” that’s shouted by Kessler himself. It’s a larger-than-life song from a unique band.

    Heavy, energizing, catchy, fitting, awesome. 



"Good Feeling" by Flo Rida

6 of 6

    Artist: Flo Rida

    Song: "Good Feeling"

    Album: Wild Ones

    Year: 2011


    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, sometimes I get a good feeling, yeah
    I get a feeling that I never never, never had before, no no
    I get a good feeling, yeah

    Oh oh, sometimes I get a good feeling, yeah
    I get a feeling that I never never, never, never had before, no no
    I get a good feeling, yeah

    "Good Feeling" was the official theme song of both Survivor Series and WrestleMania XXVIII. Perhaps it should now be the official theme song of Monday Night Raw.

    Just kidding.


    Thanks for reading! Now it's your turn. Which songs do you think would be good Raw theme songs?
