“Sometimes love, it’s like a slow dance. But sometimes love… it sounds like a fight. It sounds like an argument, it sounds just like a piledriver.” Are you wondering who said these hauntingly romantic words? Could it have been Emily Brontë? “The Bird Man” Koko B. Ware? Shakespeare? Wait, stop. Go back. You were right the second time. Great work! So you must already know what we’re talking about!
We invited our dear friend, contributor, and wrestling historian, Dennard Dayle on the Dogg Zzone 9000 to discuss the 1987 WWF music video collection: Piledriver: The Wrestling Album II.
Listen here! Or wherever you get podcasts!
You might be wondering, “Wrestling music videos? What, is it like recordings of their entrance music?” Oh my god, no. You’re not even close. These are standalone songs written for this. Songs you’re expected to enjoy(?) that are sort of about wrestlers or inspired by wrestlers or performed by wrestlers, and in one case, written about an unrelated thing after a frustrating phone meeting with wrestlers.
Editor’s Note: We did not change a syllable of this or edit the screenshots in any way. Enjoy the pure, Tito Santana and Rick Martel approved song about not wrestling, but “Girls in Cars.”
If you love this type of high-impact wrestling music, review us on iTunes! Koko us on bWare! Girls us in Cars!

my dad got me this on vinyl for my birthday one year. he bought it cause it was framed and didnt know the record was still in there so it was. an Amazing surprise
Catering to me so hard I am getting worried what’s next? A five-part podcast series each covering one of the times I saw Food Fight?!? With the bonus episodes interviewing the people I made watch it with me after the first time?
This podcast also provides more evidence for one of my most prominent beliefs: Black people like Bret Hart (c.f., the Lucas Bros., Rich Swann).
I think it has to do with how his critiques of the failed US social welfare system contrasted with Stone Cold’s virulent white Texas sociopath libertarianism.
I think it’s a combination of this, and my own personally theory: black people like Bret Hart because Bret Hart fucking rules. Especially “I hate Americans” Bret Hart. Or “Who are you to doubt El Dandy?” Bret Hart.
That null hypothesis probably stands.
I don’t care if this makes me look soft, or like a dickrider. I love your podcasts. The way they take me away from my relative isolation, and the knowledge that you guys are having so much fun makes me so happy.
Enthusiasm is a lovely thing that should be shared. The podcasts rule, look forward to them every week and you nail why. Thanks!
This place is all soft underbelly. Thank you and you’re welcome!
I love you so hard.
Wednesday is the bednesday.
“Solitaire, but with Ted Dibiase’s hands” and i am dead.
