Hey yo, “WCW Mayhem The Music” is the first soundtrack CD of WCW (in case you didn’t know). It features artists like the “Insane Clown Posse”, “Slayer”, “Metallica”, “Megadeth”, “Kid Rock”, “Cypress Hill” and many more as well as different wrestler themes. Now, why don’t I give it five stars? Well, the reason is simple, the only part missing are full length wrestler themes. Almost all the themes are cut short to one minute (hey, WCW, I would have liked to have the whole Hulk Hogan or DDP theme on the CD). There are some full length themes like Sting’s “Seek and Destroy”, PG-13’s “Take It” or Terry Funk’s “Fist Full”. Anyway, I recommend this CD for every WCW fan out there. So, let’s hope that the next WCW soundtrack CD will have more full length themes on it (one of my personal favourites, “Sid Vicious”). C-Ya all at the next WCW event.

These days entertainment is all about synergy and cross-merchandising baby, from the ”free” toys at the burger joint to the pay-per-view rights, soundtrack CD, T-shirt sales, and cereal endorsements, et al. The wrestling establishment has become increasingly savvy at such activity, and this CD would seem to be the culmination of this marketing ethos. WCW Mayhem brings together new and exclusive tracks from some of the hottest hip-hop (Cypress Hill, Lyrical Giants), metal (Metallica, Slayer), and hip-hop-metal acts (Kid Rock, ICP) as well as the entrance themes for the hottest WCW superstars (from Goldberg to the Nitro Girls). Does it deliver? Hell yeah; this disc is as rowdy and entertaining, boastful and testosterone-fueled as the sport that it celebrates. –Mike McGonigal

I regret I did not read the reviews here before I got this CD. Being a diehard WWF wrestling fan I was hoping this CD follows up on the legacy of the WWR volume music series. Instead of focusing on wrestlers’ entrance themes, they incorporate a lot of songs from various rock/rap artists. Even worst is that each of those theme songs are around a minute long! Plus some theme’s background have the voices of Tony Schiavone and Bobby Heenan (WHY? )! I find this CD more a promotional item and it is for diehard WCW fans only.
First I would like to say I just bought this CD because of ICP. After listening to this CD I wish I would have just gotten the MP3. WCW like always drops the ball where WWF exceeds. This album has little to do with wrestling and a lot to do with trying to make a quick buck. The entrance themes are hacked to death, a lot of the other music isn’t even really related to WCW in the least, not to say that it is bad music just you could go out and buy the other artists cds and be more satisified. This album is the biggest example of corporate crap out there.
Not a patch of the WWF quality type of music cd . The highlights of the Cd are not the wrestlers themes but the artists like metallica,megadeth,kid rock etc ( Shouldn’t you showscase your wrestlers first ? ) . Nearly all the wrestlers music is under 80 seconds ! and has heenan and fat tony talking at the start etc like on the tv show ! . This has been a wasted opportunity for WCW and the people behind wwf vol.4 will be laughing their heads off at the comparison . Only the most die-hard wrestling fan should bother getting this at all – very disappointing. One other thing … why wasn’t The Cat or Disco inferno on the Cd ?
If your looking to buy some Clear and Complete Wrestling Themes like Randy Savage,Hulk Hogan,nWo Wolfpack.Then this CD is not it!It does have it on their but each officail Wrestlers entrance is only 1:00 long thats it!Its not even complete.But they have some Themes from other Artists and were never used,like some from Kid Rock and Limp bizkit (which both suck hard time)I was hoping for some Wrestlers themes like Erenst Miller,Lex Luger.The only CLEAR and Complete Wrestlers themes are the following *Sting – Seek and Destroy *Creative Control – Loose (Very cool) *Vampiro OLD – Take it (ICP also very cool) *Terry Funk – Fist Full *KonnanThats it,everything else on the CD Sucks.Please dont get this CD and wait until WCW can come out with WCW The Music vol 1,because I cant handle this.Whats next Backstreet boys?HELL NO!Save Your Money on this one,this was NOT made for wrestling fans,trust me
