The Meaning Behind Randy Orton's Theme Music

Daris BrownSenior Analyst IJuly 27, 2009

I was recently privy to some insight on Randy Orton's theme music, Voices by Rev Theory, and how it came about.

For those who think the song wasn't written specifically for Randy, think again as this isn't the first theme song Rev Theory has done (they also did one for Ashley Massaro).

In order to get to know the WWE champ better, lead singer Rich Luzzi traveled with Randy Orton for a week to get inside his head, for a lack of a better term, and here's how he came to write the popular theme song.

After a week with Randy, Luzzi said everything came to him so quickly. He got the mindset of a killer who had no control over his actions or environment. Luzzi began to try and guess what Randy was thinking when he stepped into a WWE. Sorta like WWJD, only in this case Jesus would kick you in the skull instead of pull you up if he saw you down.

And like an epiphany it all became clear. These are his thoughts and notes. The italics are the lyrics, which are followed by Luzzi's thoughts, as Randy's Thoughts. Try and follow along will ya.

I hear voices in my head
The council me
They understand

Hello? Randy, are you there?

Yes? Good. Ok Randy you're going to be a good boy today. No incidents and no accidents.

And remember, like Snitsky, it's not you're fault. Your just misunderstood.

They tell me things that I will do
They show me things I'll do to you
They talk to me, they talk to me

Wait... is Cena looking at you? I think he is. That motha... he think he's better than you doesn't he? You need to handle his goofy, always saluting, corny...

Okay, this what you need to do. Super glue the brim of his hat when he lays it down. That way when he goes to throw it into the crowd, he'll rip half his scalp off. He'll fall down in pain and then you can kick him in the scull.

No, wait that's weak. Sit back until he starts rehearsing his lines in front of the mirror. Then at the 18th minute mark, push him into the mirror shattering it into millions of pieces. And as he's kneeling down and pulling shards from his brain, kick him in the skull.

No, wait that's weak. Wait till he's throwing his bags into his car after the show. Sneak up behind him ...ooh, is that a Debbie Cake?

You got your rules and your religion
All designed to keep you safe
But when rules start getting broken
You start questioning your faith

Mmm that was tasty. Any who. Cena does think he's the man around here. Always preaching to the kids.

He thinks since WWE went PG that he will always be the man.

But what happens when I start kicking people in the face? What happens when I start making out with the bosses daughter as I handcuff her husband to the ropes and beat him down?

Do you still think you will be invincible? How long will you say the champ is here when it is I who holds the belt?

I have a voice that is my savior
Hates to love and loves to hate
I have the voice that has the knowledge
And the power to rule your fate

Yeah, 'cause Vince doesn't rule me. I rule me.
And I rule you too.
I'm smarter than you. Did you know that RKO isn't just a fancy swap of TKO? Oh no. It's my name, Randy Keith Orton. So eat it.
And did I mention I rule you too?

I hear voices crying
I see heroes dying
I taste the blood that's drying
I feel the tension rising

Where's Ted? Where's Cody? I feel so alone. Guys... why are ya'll always leaving? Don't you know you must be at my side at all times? I'm sorry about the whole punting thing. Honest I am.

Fine. That's cool. I'll just go kick someone in the head. John Cena, Ric Flair, Captain Crunch... everyone.

I kinda bit my lip, and I think I'm frickin bleeding. Darn Backyardigans are a lot faster than they look on TV.

They were starting to tick me off. My brain is starting to hurt.

All the lawyers are defenseless
All the doctors are disease
And the preachers all are sinners
And the police just take the grease
All you judges you are guilty
All the bosses I will fire
All you bankers will have losses
And politicians are all liars

But when the throbbing stops, you cannot escape my wrath.

You cannot hide because I will find you and break you.

There's nothing you can say.

Unless you pay me. I'd do anything for another tattoo. Tramp stamp anyone?

Don't judge me. You'd get one too. Dolphins are nice... If they have flaming sculls around it of course.

Oh who cares what you think. I will own you soon anyways.

I will take all you're money and leave you like the homeless bum you are.

No, I'm kidding. I don't care what you do.

I see darkness falling
I hear voices calling
I feel justice crawling
I see faith has fallen

I've got a bad feeling about today.

Is that Triple H calling me? Nope. Just JLB doing another impersonation. Dang he's good.

And wow, there goes Demetrus. He really needs to pick himself up. Daris really did steal that last Turnbuckle 2 Turnbuckle victory.

Maybe I should tell Shane that everything's gonna be alright. It's all good even though One Night with Shane Contest only attracted three grandmas and the almost hot lady with three arms. Don't look so sad.

I hear voices in my head
The council me
They understand
They tell me things that I will do
They show me things I'll do to you
They talk to me, they talk to me

...Darn ADD.
