Top 5 Best Pro Wrestling Entrance Music: #2: Jive Soul Bro

If you can get past the cringe-worthy stereotyping (a Fat Albert lookalike carrying a ghetto blaster? A bucket of fried chicken??) and the uncomfortably claustrophobic close-ups of Slick's mouth, "Jive Soul Bro" is a shockingly acceptable funk jam. The smooth bass work and understated sax perfectly complement the Slickster's, shall we say, enthusiastic vocals.

Also appreciated is that Slick took the time to choreograph hand motions for the chorus during his studio shoot. And check out the Big Wheel stunt at 2:45!
