Five Most Kickass Entrance Songs — EVER!

Because some of you asked for it during our recent roundup of the lamest, here are our picks for the best. Please post your opinions in the comments, but keep in mind that nu-metal is for fairies, and French rap music will absolutely not be tolerated. 5. Shonie Carter (UFC 53) — "Superfly," Curtis Mayfield Shonie Carter is only 35 years old, but he acts like he's goddamn Ossie Davis in Do the Right Thing, always trying to tell the youngin’s bout the way things oughta be (and occasionally getting dropped from contracts as a result). No, "Superfly" doesn't get a crowd riled up to see blood — Mr. International would rather use his entrance to showcase his taste in '70s soul hits. In other words, fuck y'all. 4. Forrest Griffin (UFC 72) — "I'm Shipping Up to Boston," Dropkick Murphys True, it doesn't take much to get Irish people in the mood for drinking and fighting, but in a room full of Celtics fans, playing this song is like throwing chum into shark-filled water. When you're actually in Belfast public broadcast of the Dropkick Murphys is irresponsibly dangerous — but then again, "Irresponsibly Dangerous" is Forrest Griffin's middle name. The only thing that could have made his entrance at UFC 72 better is if Griffin convinced Mark Wahlberg to walk out to the cage with him.
