According to Kevin Kellam of Pro Wrestling Examiner, METALLICA‘s song “The Memory Remains” is being used to promote this year’s Wrestlemania match between The Undertaker and Triple H. The track is expected to be included in WWE “Raw” and WWE “Smackdown”video packages in weeks leading up to the big pay-per-view event on April 1 in Miami, Florida.
A clip of “Memory Remains” was featured on this past Monday night’s (February 20) on “Raw” prior to Triple H — who is a heavy metal and hard rock enthusiast — accepting The Undertaker‘s challenge for a rematch following last year’s Wrestlemania.
Triple H previously made his entrance to the METALLICA song “For Whom The Bell Tolls” during last year’s WWE Wrestlemania XXVII match against The Undertaker at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia.
Triple H‘s regular entrance theme, “The Game”, was recorded by MOTÖRHEAD. MOTÖRHEAD also performed additional theme songs “King Of Kings” and “Line In The Sand” for Triple H and his former stable, Evolution.
“The Memory Remains”, which originally appeared on METALLICA‘s 1997 album “Reload”, features backing vocals by British singer-songwriter Marianne Faithfull.
