Roadtrip Music: Ministry/Dark Side by Jim Johnston (The Undertaker, Ministry of Darkness, Yoshihiko)

The Undertaker has had many themes over the years. From Jim Johnston productions like You’re Gonna Pay, Deadman Walkin’ and the iconic Graveyard Symphony to licensed songs like Kid Rock’s American Bad Ass and Limp Bizkit’s Rollin’. This week we’ll take a look at Ministry by Johnston. It was released as Ministry on WWF The Music Volume 4 in 1999, […]

In 1997, the WWF licensed the National Wrestling Alliance trademarks and brought a presence into the company from the once-opposition group. The angle started when Jim Cornette […]
