+1 for The Marching Erections





Well you know, just because these young men have little education and live in squalor, it doesn't entitle them to commit antisocial behaviour and get away with it.

I don't think anything will get me pumped for a pro wrestling show quite like ECW's opening videos.

That music is GOAT

"This Is Extreme!" hasn't struggled to make the finals. "Across the Nation" had its biggest fight in the first round, beating the original Raw theme by only one vote. And a shout out to LoveMuscle who was both right (in predicting the final) and wrong (in predicting the winner*) from the first round:

Matte, I appreciate your thoroughness ... but I think most of us know it's going to boil down to classic ECW vs. classic RAW.

Can we just skip to the end of this part and declare ECW's "This is extreme" the best show open theme?



*unless it makes a comeback

A statement so true it deserved to be said twice.

As much as I adore marching erections I threw my bone towards ECW. There was just something so unseemly, grimy, gritty, and sleazy about it that I just had to tune in whenever I heard it while channel surfing late at night in the mid-to-late 90's.

I think of it in the same way I think of the theme to the old Tales From the Darkside show. Creepy and unsettling throughout while setting the tone for some previously unseen freaky shit that was about to go down. Which, in the pro wrasslin' world at the time, was completely accurate.
