The music of NXT Takeover: New York and WrestleMania 35

Apr 4, 2019 - by Colin Vassallo

Lights, cameras, and action are three of the most important factors in a WWE show but things would be really different if there wasn’t music as the fourth factor.

Every year, NXT Takeover and WrestleMania have a couple of songs named as official theme songs for the shows and this year is obviously no different.

For NXT Takeover: New York, a song by Disturbed and another by Billie Eilish will serve as the official songs for the event. The song by Disturbed is called Are You Ready, their first single off of their 2018 album Evolution. The song reached the #1 spot on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart and #5 on Billboard’s Rock Digital Songs Sales chart. The other song is You Should See Me In A Crown by Eilish. It was released in July 2018 and reached #7 in the Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart.

WrestleMania also has two songs which are being promoted as official theme songs. The song Work, released this year by hip-hop artist Chris Classic, is being used in the countdown videos while Love Runs Out by OneRepublic and released in 2014, is the other song being used. The song reached the #15 spot in the Billboard Hot 100.
