    Default CM Punk/Payback Spoiler

    Not sure how credible this is but...

    Kevin was at the Rancid show last night in Detroit, and CM Punk came out on stage. He reports that Lars said Rancid recorded a new theme for Punk that will debut at WWE Payback.
    http://www.ftwpodcast.com/new-cm-pun...t-wwe-payback/

    IF he does get a new theme song, many of you are gonna bitch about it, right?

    Personally I don't care either way.

    BUT CoP has become sort of Punk's trademark. After 2 years WWE might be sick of paying the royalties for it. Though it could just be a CoP cover maybe so WWE don't have to pay as much?

    It he doesn't come out to CoP, Chicago crowd won't react as loudly.

    Punk WAS at the concert however. https://twitter.com/CMPunk/status/344633597078155264

    Interesting.

    Sounds awesome. I love Cult of Personality but this sounds like a positive step forward to the next stage of Punk's career.

    No one in the crowd knew what was going on when he first used Cult of Personality in the WWE, but when he walked out the pop was huge, and you know they'll lose it in Chicago the moment he walks out.

    Royalties are weird and complicated. If the WWE were smart and business wise they generally are, they worked a deal for a flat fee of X amount of $...maybe with a % after so many plays...who knows really...it could literally be anything. Music is impossible to understand.

    I won't complain. Rancid is fucking awesome. Punk has friends with those guys for a while so it's not surprising if they did a new theme for him.

    Wrestling fans are kinda Pavlovian, so I'm curious as to how they might react to not hearing "Cult of Personality".

    YOU WILL COMPLY.

    I dig Rancid so this is fine by me, but it will take some getting used too. DJM hit the nail on the head: we love our theme song the same. It was hard to get used to COP when he had used AFI for so long. Then, he has switched to Disturbed and COP. I have enjoyed all of his theme music. So I'm sure Rancid will do a good job, but it'll take some time to get used to it.

    Now I'm reading reports that it may have just been a joke. https://twitter.com/WNSource/status/344842032285626368

    I'll wait till I hear the new theme to judge whether I'm happy about it or not of course, I do love Cult Of Personality though.

    I guess now Cult of Personality will now be synonymous with the last 2 years of his career from the infamous promo to the end of his 400+ day title reign and trying to take on the streak, a new theme will be the start of a new chapter for him.

    Not for a lack of trying. He got Black Label Society to record a new version of 'Break the Walls Down" for his 2007 return, but Kevin Dunn didn't like it and refused to let him use it.

    FUCKING DUUUUUUUUUUNN!!!!!

    "King of my World" was pretty atrocious.

    I remember when Cult Of Personality was a hit in '89, I thought it would make a perfect wrestling intro for someone (at the time I was hoping for Bad News Brown).

    It works real well for Punk, I hope they don't change it. And Rancid is kinda meh...
