Five WWE Wrestlers With Surprising Taste in Music (feat. Daniel Bryan's Indie Single)
1. CM Punk
Unlike, say, The Rockers or Techno Team 2000, it's pretty easy to tell that CM Punk's gimmick is not just a gimmick. Well--if it is, at least, he takes kayfabe more seriously than anybody has in 20 years, seeing as he held court with us back in 2010 about straight edge favorites old and new.
NT: What are your top five bands of all time?
CM: Oh my god! Top five bands of all time? (whistles) That's a big deal. This is knee-jerk list, definitely nothing that's concrete and it'll probably change the instant I hang up the phone with you. In no particular order: The Clash, Misfits, Faith No More, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Minor Threat.
And given pro wrestling's long-standing substance abuse problems, namedropping Earth Crisis has to be the most surprising musical taste of all.
