In this episode: Stefan and Drew do not actually hate rap.

A wrestler's entrance music announces his or her presence to the world, providing valuable information about character and priming the audience for what its about to see. But there are downsides to entrance music as well as upsides, and while some wrestlers thrive with their personal soundtrack, others are hindered or even crippled by the tune that plays as they make their way to the ring. Join us as we explore the world of entrance music, from its inception in the Golden Age of Wrestling to its evolution through the 1980s and 1990s to its spread across the American cultural landscape.
