Columbia Records is set to release WWE: Wreckless Intent -- a knock-out compilation of World Wrestling Entertainment's Superstars' entrance theme music performed by today's hottest hardcore rock, alternative and hip-hop artists -- on Tuesday, May 23.
The songs on WWE: Wreckless Intent are the massively powerful wrestlers' themes heard during the WWE's enormously successful TV shows -- "SmackDown!®," "RAW®," "WrestleMania®," and "Saturday Night's Main Event™" -- as performed by today's top-selling aggro-rock and rap artists. The album features the first new music -- "Some Bodies Gonna Get It" (as associated with the WWE talent Mark Henry™) -- from Three 6 Mafia since the dirty south rappers took home the Academy Award for Best Original Song earlier this month.
"Once again, we've merged some of today's cutting edge musical acts along with the premiere sports entertainment company and the WWE Superstars that reach fans around the world," said Neil Lawi, General Manager WWE Music Group. "WWE: Wreckless Intent is filled with entrance themes from both RAW® and Friday Night SmackDown® Superstars as performed by some of today's hottest rock and hip-hop artists. This album will further push our brand into pop culture, and additionally solidify our commitment to working within the music industry and artists on a global basis."
