Some of the Worst Music You Have Never Heard

What tends to happen with celebs with big egos try to sing? Nothing happens. You never hear the music. You never want to hear the music. Well, today I am bringing you the music. Here's to the bad-ass Macho Man Randy Savage


1) Macho Man Randy Savage - This dude was the man to ever pre-pubescent child growing up. Whether he was talking on the Ultimate Warrior or encouraging you to eat a Slim Jim, he had every young video-game playing boy, sweating his nuts. So what happened? Well, he fell off the face of the planet and recently decided to make a big comeback as a rapper. On his album, he taunts Hulk Hogan and challenges him to a battle-well .. I'll just let you read some of his lyrics.

" Hot diggity damn Hulk I'm glad you set it off (set if off)
Used to be hard Hulk now ya done turned soft
Doin'’ telephone commercials I seen ya
Dancin'’ in tights as a ballerina
I knew all along you had those tendencies
Cuz you've been runnin'’ from Macho like I got a disease
Dude please your pay per view event was a joke
You'’re avoidin' Randy Savage cuz you know you'’ll get smoked "


Visit his website here and listen to the streaming audio.

Pitchfork also has an old review here.
