Across the Nation, but it just might be because of WWE's production team. It's so much more memorable because they'd try to match
the song with wrestlers doing cool shit. Synching up the guitar riff with Kane setting off his pyro stil sticks in my mind.
Beatutiful People is at the very least just as good as song, probably better, but it doesn't feel as integrated into the show like Across the

The first time I saw Union Underground live was when they opened for Manson in Milwaukee. U.U. stole the show that night, and they get my vote here.

Funny things you find on Youtube. Here's the intro a couple times with the different video edits they did every couple of months. The video
editing really did help make this song work well as an intro.
And here's the full song, which is cool because the video has WWE footage and is like a 3 minute intro to Raw.
Beautiful People is a cool song, but I never think of Smackdown when I hear the song on the radio. I don't think I've ever heard Across
the Nation on the radio, but if I did, I'd immediately think of Raw.

I know that's not what they're singing, but for the longest time before I cared to look them up I legit thought the beginning lyrics to
AtN were, "Look at the guns, the drugs, the marching erections...". And that is why it's special to me.
