Puddle of Mudd rocks One Night Stand
While One Night Stand may be over, its ramifications are still being felt throughout WWE. Similarly, Puddle of Mudd, who provided "Famous," the official theme song for the pay-per-view, has been rocking WWE for several years.
The Kansas City, Mo., band's "Control" was the official theme song of Survivor Series 2001, and "Nothing Left to Lose" was the theme for Royal Rumble 2004. As they say, the third time's a charm -- "Famous" rocked One Night Stand 2007.
"Puddle of Mudd became involved with WWE because I heard they loved the song, ‘Famous,' and they loved it so much they had to have it!" said Puddle of Mudd vocalist/guitarist Wes Scantlin.
He said the song "Famous" is a perfect fit for WWE and its roster of Superstars.
"There's a bunch of famous people in WWE -- they're all over the place! God bless 'em," Scantlin said. "[The song and WWE] kind of goes hand-in-hand. I think it's kind of cool -- I like it a lot."
"Famous" is the first single off Puddle of Mudd's fifth album, Livin' on Borrowed Time, which hits stores July 24. The band is on tour in North America now in support of the release.
"It's a splendid record. We're very happy to finally have it finished. I'm thankful for everything I have. The record turned out beautifully, and I have no complaints about it at all," he explained. "It's wonderful, and I'm happy with it. I think all parties involved are happy as well, and I'd like to say thanks to all involved. I appreciate it."
Scantlin told WWE.com he and fellow Puddle of Mudd band members, Doug Ardito, Christian Stone and Ryan Yerdon, are "huge, huge WWE fans." While their busy tour schedule doesn't allow them much time to catch WWE live events, they're hoping they'll be able to soon. In the meantime, Scantlin offered this message to our fans:
"When the fans make those crazy signs for all the Superstars -- I'd like to say to all the fans -- make some Puddle of Mudd signs, so when I'm watching WWE on TV, I can see them up there. That would be really cool!" Scantlin said.
"I hope everybody out there's having a good time. WWE fans, keep it going -- it's a good sport. It's a good thing. I like it. It's awesome. … It's way awesome!"
