I have to defend the DiBiase theme on these grounds: the "vibe" of the song with "money money money" is a direct lift of "Louie, Louie"....they kind of sound alike.


Also Hogan had "Hulk Hogan's Theme" for a hot second between Eye of the Tiger and Real American....and I liked that one quite a bit and so did the guy who composed it since it got reused in "Ravishing" by Bonnie Tyler. Still love Hogan in WCW with "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" and playing the belt like a guitar.


Really enjoyed this show.
