The Royal Rumble goes Airbourne
While some of your favorite WWE Superstars cringe at the thought of going airborne over the top ropes at Royal Rumble, they're pumped to hear Airbourne, the band who will be providing the rocking soundtrack. Their song, "Stand Up For Rock ‘N' Roll" is the official theme of the 2008 Royal Rumble.
"There's a bit of aggression in the song. It's also a good-time, rock ‘n' roll song, and WWE is also a good time, as well. It's entertainment, so the Royal Rumble really fits with this song," said Joel O'Keeffe, vocalist and lead guitarist for the band.
"Wrestling is one of the best forms of entertainment in the world. And ‘Stand Up for Rock ‘N' Roll' is just one of those rockin' tracks that seems to go well with people getting their heads smashed in!" he said.
O'Keeffe and the other members of Airbourne -- Ryan O'Keeffe (drums), David Roads (guitar) and Justin Street (bass) -- are pumped their song is being used to promote the Rumble because they're big WWE fans.
"We're really excited. We've loved wrestling since we were really little kids, watching it on TV in Australia," he said. "We used to watch it all the time, and still if we're around, like when we're out touring and in a hotel and there's Raw on the TV, we always watch and we love it."
O'Keeffe describes "Stand Up For Rock ‘N' Roll," which is off the album Runnin' Wild, in stores Jan. 29 on Roadrunner Records, as a call to arms.
"Back in Australia -- I don't know if it's like this over there, too -- they closed a lot of pubs down where a lot of good rock ‘n' roll bands could play or where bands could play in general," he explained.
"It's about that, and also neighbors now, for some reason, have the ability to shut pubs down when they're moving, and then the consulate comes around and gives them a government bill kind of thing that says you can't have bands anymore, it's too loud, the neighbors aren't happy," O'Keeffe continued.
"So ‘Stand Up for Rock ‘N' Roll,' that's what it's about. Rock ‘n' roll is meant to be loud -- that's what it is -- and you have to stand up for it!" he said.
As for Airbourne's favorite WWE Superstar, the Aussies are big fans of the Texas Rattlesnake.
"‘Stone Cold' Steve Austin, he's the best. His persona is exactly what we're like as people, as well," O'Keeffe explained. "We love getting pissed, we love breaking sh*t, we like swearing and all those kinds of things. He just comes out and kicks ass, it's great!"
U.S. fans can expect to see more of the band in the near future because they're heading to New Jersey.
"We're flying to the United States on Jan. 29 and we're doing four days of promo. Then we go straight to the U.K. for about three or four weeks, and then we fly back and start our U.S. tour around the end of February," O'Keeffe said. "I know there are New York dates and that kind of thing coming up."
O'Keeffe said the band has one message for our fans who will hear their song at this year's Royal Rumble: "Yeah, just have the best Royal Rumble of your life! I hope it's an awesome show!"
