Rocky Romero of NJPW Just Dropped An Album. Say What?!?

RockyR

Are you familiar with New Japan Pro Wrestling, then you’re PROBABLY also familiar with Rocky Romero. If not, you should know that he’s a longtime tag team specialist and sometimes dons the mask of Black Tiger, a legacy gimmick once held by the legendary Eddie Guerrero. He also has something in common with WWE stars John Cena, Shawn Michaels, and Tyler Breeze: he performs his own theme song, “RPG Vice Theme,” where he’s the vocalist AND producer. However, the story doesn’t stop there… Continue reading Rocky Romero of NJPW Just Dropped An Album. Say What?!?

Here’s R-Truth’s New Single ‘Me, Myself And I;’ What Do You Think?

R-Truth (Ron “The Truth” Killings) is a former multi-time NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion and WWE United States Champion, and he’s mainly known for rapping his entrance song while coming down the ramp.  When I heard that he’s released a new song called “Me, Myself and I,” — featuring a trap beat that’s feels familiar to what’s currently on the radio — I was intrigued and gave it a listen, and it was a’ight. Good! You’ll get a gauge of how passionate he is about hip-hop on Chris Jericho’s podcast, and on WWE Network’s Table For 3 episode where The Miz was over-the-moon on R-Truth’s passion for the music genre.

Famous Rapper Consequence Releases Wyatt Family Song

Rapper Consequence, whose debut album was released by Kanye West’s “GOOD Music” label, recently recorded a hip-hop track called “Follow The Buzzards,” which samples The Wyatt Family’s theme music. For a little background, The Wyatt Family is a professional wrestling stable in WWE which has the gimmick of a backwoods cult, and consists of leader Bray Wyatt and his followers, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. As a nice little bonus to the track, the single includes a cartoon picture of the Wyatt Family for the promo art. You can listen to it here, and sound off with your thoughts and opinions in the comments section down there. That’s below this text. You know what I mean…

OMG! “The Harlem Shake” Meme Has Taken OVER!!

…and this is how you do it in three simple steps:

1. Wear any type of headgear.
2. Play the song “Harlem Shake” by  Baauer.
3. GO BUCK WILD!!

The internet is a valuable resource for infromation, education, and interaction, but sometimes something special comes up online that could seem like some type of joke that evolves to become something SO ELABORATE that it seems as if it’s no longer a gag.  Case in point: the video above it the credited as the first example of the “Harlem Shake” video meme. What started as an introduction to a comedy compilation video called “Filthy Compilation #6 — Smell My Fingers” from comedian Filthy Frank has EXPLODED — in this PAST WEEK — into an internet and YouTube phenomenon, seemingly joining the likes of the Macarena, The “Gangnam Style” dance,  and –ugh — the “Crank Dat” dance (just…..just….terrible).

After the break, I’ve included some videos from college kids, firefighters, office spaces (like SourceFed, CollegeHumor, Break & IGN) and the Peanuts.  As far as memes go, most of the “Harlem Shake” videos are pretty awesome, mainly because they’re close-to-nothing more hilarious that watching people — mostly of the anglo persuasion — dance awfully to hip-hop-infused dub-step music.   Continue reading OMG! “The Harlem Shake” Meme Has Taken OVER!!
