Someone Bought This: WWF Fan Club cassette tapes have a lot of bad music

WWF Superstars Theme Music III 3 cassette tape

If you joined the WWF Fan Club, you got a cassette of theme music.

This is the 5th volume from 1993.

Let’s look at the songs:

WWF Superstars Theme Music V (1993)
All tracks composed by Jim Johnston

Lex Luger – “I’ll Be Your Hero” (2:13)
Doink the Clown – “Doinkin’ Around” (0:42)
M.O.M. – “Men On A Mission” (1:46)
Razor Ramon – “Calling All Cubans” (0:57)
The Smoking Gunns – “25 Gallon Gallop” (1:00)
Mr. Perfect – “The Perfect Twist” (1:08)

The only two good ones on this tape are Mr. Perfect’s theme and Razor Ramon’s theme. Donk’s theme here is his lame face theme instead of his awesome heel theme.

Gee, we get both M.O.M’s incomprehensible rap theme and Lex Luger’s sappy ballad! Oh boy!

“The Perfect Twist”? Curt Hennig covers Chubby Checker!

(or maybe not).

This is one of the worst volumes, though some of the other cassettes had a bunch of lousy themes on them too.

    “Doinkin’ Around.”

    What needs to be said that the title doesn’t already say for itself?

    No shame here, but I had a couple of those cassettes as a kid. I think one had the Boss man’s “hard times” and “The Dragon’s” theme, to name a couple.

    So, the tape is only 8 minutes long!?

    I still have a couple of these packed away somewhere.

    IIRC, some of the themes were Jake Roberts, Boss Man, Piper, The Barber, Demolition, Warrior, and Snuka, to name a few.

    As a kid, this was the only way to get theme music, barring sitting a tape recorder in front of the television. I remember being disappointed they weren’t longer, or complete, which equally sucked because you had to rewind quite a bit if you liked a particular one or two.

    Or, you could get a dual tape deck, record until right before fade out, pause the recording tape, rewind the other, and make an extended cut of sorts.

    It was still cool to get your hands on them, though. Still have the Hulk Rules ruler I got with the fan club somewhere, too, and possibly my Ultimate Warrior mini standee.

    At least it wouldn’t take long to rewind.

    The 1994 tape had Diesel’s theme. Think about that. That’s not his bluesy second theme, but his original “music.” The WWF sent fans a tape with 27 seconds of truck noises.

      I had that one. Actually, the tape worked well when playing with the WWF Hasbro toys, since you could then add official entrance themes. Good times…

    I have one with Bret’s original themesong on it (the non-remixed version), which I wore out.

  7. Adam Cota says:

    I honestly read the Smoking Gunns’ song title as “25-Gallon Gulp” at first, leading me to believe this was where Billy got inspiration for his 2001-02 gimmick….
