Hulk Hogan – Real American!

I realized that I haven’t really had a classic WWF/WWE posting in like a week, and that is WAY too long!

Short and sweet, our subject today is theme songs for this man right here:

I promise, you will have both of these stuck in your head for a long, long time.  Thank me later 🙂

And let’s wrap up our musical odyssey by checking in with…Jimi Hendrix?  That’s right!  When Hogan was a bad guy (NWO-era) and upon his return to WWE, he used Jimi’s “Voodoo Chile” as his entrance theme!  How ’bout some highlights?

And there ya have it.  Fight for the rights of every man.
