WWE: 25 Greatest Entrance Theme Songs of All Time

14 of 26

Edge (“Metalingus”)

This is the entry on the list that, in my mind, shows that I’m trying to be objective rather than just picking my favorites. I like Edge’s theme music, but for my tastes, I’ve always preferred his original theme from his debut.

But popular opinion holds some weight, too, and I can see why consensus would say that “Metalingus” would be the better theme. As much of a Jim Johnston fanboy as I am, Alter Bridge is just the better version of Creed, so they’re okay, I guess.

Upon turning heel in 2004, Edge adopted a whole new persona – it was basically the “Rated-R Superstar” deal before it actually had a name. As part of this character overhaul, Edge debuted a new theme by the band Alter Bridge. It began with the classic “You think you know me…” line from his original theme, but then kicked it up a notch.

If you listen to the lyrics, “Metalingus” actually paints a pretty accurate picture of the new Edge gimmick. “On this day, I see clearly/Everything has come to life” as the true opening lyrics show that he’s a new man – for better or worse. “Another chance to chase a dream/Another chance to feel/Chance to feel alive” represent his still present goals – becoming world champion – and the new life he has to do so.
