Remeber this was 1987 and during this period, several WWF
Superstar still came to the ring with no theme music,
except Hulk Hogan, Ricky Steamboat, MachoMan Randy Savage
and a few others. With the advent of theme music,
and video, the WWF new they could give the fans an extra
something. This was at a stage in the 1980's when the use
of the 8 track tape popular in the drug induced 1970's
was now coming to a close and was now being replaced
by cd audio. After this the WWF would start releasing
CD based WWF Theme music which they still do today.
This video "PileDriver" then shows us the music entrances
of then tag teams and superstars at the time. It literally
is a memorable trip down memorable. See the entrance
music for Axe and Smash of "Demolition". Demolition would
go on to be one of the most popular tag teams in WWF
history. "Strike Force"'s theme song "Girls in Cars"
is also featured. "Rock and Roll Hoochie Coo", "Honky
Tonk Man" and of course the main song "PileDriver"
by Koko B. Ware.
I really feel bad for Koko, a really good talent fired
by politics and a vindictive Vince McMahon, otherwise
this is a great video for wrestling fans to check out
