It was 1985 and one of the best birthday presents a kid could ever have imagined. My dad took my best friend, Joe Monaco and I to Madison Square Garden for the first ever Wrestlemania. The main event featured Hulk Hogan, who came out flexing and shirt-ripping to one of the most holy-fuck-yeah hero songs of all time, Rick Derringer’s “Real American”. I lost my 2nd grade voice screaming for the Hulkster and ever since, I’ve thought about how awesome it would be if your favorite song kicked on to establish your presence when you entered a room. I decided to ask a few friends and their responses were just as awesome as Jimmy Superfly Snuka leaping from the top ropes.
