Some ones that haven't been mentioned-

 

Nakamura's current entrance

 

Mistico "Ameno" - the tune went with the gimick and "Me Muero" - the lyirics about a hero saving the day with the Spanish guitar solo, is there a more perfect entrance for a white meat babyface 

 

Terry Funk- The Eagles' "Desperado" couldn't be more perfect for a guy 20 years removed from his world title reign and 10 years removed from his first retirement

 

RVD- Pantera "Walk" a song about beating the shit out of somebody that was a sing along just seemed to go with a guy who was being pushed to the moon

 

Taz- Kiss "War Machine" Same as as RVD 

 

Minoru Suzuki - "Kaze Ni Nare" 

 

Bryan Danielson- "The Final Countdown"  a sing a long off the Rocky sound track, just so perfect for a the top babyface in that atmosphere

 

Matt Riddle - Remix of Warren G's Regulate goes fits a guy who is a legit badass and is a stoner

Hot Stuff for Eddie Gilbert... fit him in name only. It didn't work.

I'd cast a so-bad-it's-good vote for Paul Orndorff's "He's Wonderful" from WCW.

Good call, and I HATE The Eagles. This is the only instance I can hang with them. (Maybe "I Can't Tell You Why," too. Maybe.)

 

Demolition's theme was perfect, and it kinda sounds like Accept.

 

Loved Doc coming down to "I Love It Loud" by Kiss when he was in All Japan.

 

Someone needs to come down to "Going Down to Die" by Danzig for their retirement match. There needs to be far more Dio and Thin Lizzy going on, too.

Jake Roberts WWF baby face theme is probably my fav. of all time. Still gives me chills.

Muta's first theme in NWA is also fantastic

As for "real songs" always loved "Perfect Strangers" for Shane Douglas

I dunno, I think "Man with Hermonica" was 3rd best entrance song, tops. 

 

And I do love Doc coming down to "Love it Loud"

 

Also I think when Undertaker came down to Johnny Cash for the build up to WrestleMania was pretty badass.

That was a stroke of genius.

Speaking of current worker that should get a real song, Sasha Banks really deserves this :

Sting's original entrance song with no lyrics was pretty cool. Hated when they changed it to a Man Called Sting. Same goes for Lex. Pretty cool sounding song despite no lyrics.

I thought it totally worked. Him strutting to that ruled.

For original music I gotta go with Badstreet USA & Simply Ravishing. For existing tunes, Another One Bites The Dust & Gimme Back My Bullets

 

Best song ever used is Real American for Hulk Hogan!

When I was writing up the fantasy booking for Michinoku Pro last year, I came up with a scene where a few of the guys were discussing the worst possible entrance songs. These were the top 5:

 

5: You’re Having My Baby by Paul Anka

4: This Guy's In Love by Herb Alpert

3: MacArthur Park by Richard Harris

2: Muscrat Love by Captain & Tennille

1: Please Mister Please (Don't Play B-17) by Olivia Newton John

I once read that Dream Theater, Chris Jericho's favorite band, was almost going to do a song for him. Jericho met guitarist John Petrucci backstage somewhere, and they chatted up the idea almost to the point of a song being born but it never happened. I like them (at least their old stuff anyway) a lot so that would have been cool. 

 

I saw on reddit a few days ago that X-Pac was asked by Shane if they could use a song the Red Hot Chili Peppers offered up, and he turned it down instead requesting something by Uncle Kracker.

I think Fame was the Macho Man's best entrance song.

 

It's So Easy for Heavy Metal and Pelo Suelto for Emilio Charles are some of my favorites. Pelo Suelto in particular isn't something I'd ever have thought of for entrance music but Emilio made it work.

 

I remember Rey Jr. coming out to A Little Respect. That was bad. Worse was whoever it was who used Dangerous by Roxette in Monterrey. Didn't Rick Martel have some hilariously unwrestling song in WCW?  I actually like a lot of the generic WCW songs though, like Psicosis' and Alex Wright's.
