In 1998, the World Wrestling Federation was searching for new elements to thrust the Attitude Era into the stratosphere of professional wrestling.
As fans flocked to shows across the country, the WWF learned that the one of the easiest ways to get their product over was via use of popular music.
They began the process by branding several events and shows with high profile musical acts, some of whom had previously collaborated on the WWF's Full Metal album.
In the last dozen years, several of these bands are now staples of WWE programming, having their tunes sampled and ripped for wrestlers as well as pay-per-view events and even television shows.
Remember the first time you heard AC/DC's “Highway to Hell” in salute of SummerSlam 1998? Or the unforgettable use of Limp Bizkit's “My Way” all throughout WrestleMania X-Seven?
Let's face it: the WWE knows how to properly utilize music television as a vessel for the artists and themselves at the same time.
In that line of thinking, I present to you the list of the 10 Musical Acts Synonymous with WWE. And if you're thinking I left out Jim Johnston, just know that he's disqualified altogether. Enjoy!
