No. 1: Hulk Hogan’s theme (Real American, Rick Derringer, 1984)
This song totally captured Hulkamania. œI am a Real American! Fight for the rights of every man! Flag waving his considered by some to be uncool, but Hogan made it work, and this song was a huge part of it.
The song has stood the test of time, with new generations appreciating it as well as older ones. Its popularity was most recently was revived in 2011, when President Obama used it at the beginning of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Like Obama or not, what a zinger to Donald Trump!
This theme had all the elements. It was a good song, it conveyed a message and a mood and it matched the personality of the performer. It likely will not be topped in my lifetime.
