Randy Orton's theme song "Voices" is one of the most iconic themes in wrestling. The song was crafted by Rev Theory, who have also contributed themes for various WWE pay-per-view events.
Matty McCloskey, the bassist and vocalist for Rev Theory, recently joined Drinks With Johnny and discussed coming up with "Voices" and more for WWE.
"[We Own The Night] and [Hangman] were songs we wrote that they thought were fitting. [Voices] was a collaboration with their guy. He had an idea and we went into the studio and did our version of what we thought the song would be and it ended up being Randy's theme song. There's not a post we put online where someone doesn't comment "VOICES!" Everything we post," he said.
Rev Theory performed "Voices" live at WrestleMania 30, which featured Orton competing in the main event against Daniel Bryan and Batista.
Speaking about the appearance, McCloskey said, "We played [WrestleMania 30] and played on the ramp as he entered. We went to New Orleans and late night we ended up at the bar with Randy, just shooting the shit and drinking. When he's there, he's super in-character. He's relaxed and awesome to hang ut with. The wrestlers have always been great to us."
Orton continues to use the "Voices" theme each week on WWE Raw. He not only has voices in his head at the moment, but is currently possessed by something and has been vomiting black ooze.
