MMA fighters are the keepers of certain societal goods. They preserve our connection to the primal, our rapidly deteriorating relationship with our ancestors. They provide a certain purity of competition—victory and defeat delivered in the most unequivocal terms—that is increasingly difficult to find in our cubicle-ized, demasculinated society.
They also keep a lot of bad songs alive. Fighters seem to have designated themselves the protectors of super garbage-y music—and more power to them. But being a person who, you know, enjoys good music, I feel some of these songs have hit their limit.
These are the 10 biggest culprits that I want to go away. How did I choose them? Well, they're either bad songs, overdone songs, completely inappropriate for an entrance song songs, or some combination of the preceding.
