WWF Aggression is a compilation album released by the World Wrestling Federation in 2000.[1] It features rap artists performing versions of wrestler's entrance music. This was the first WWF/WWE album featuring a collaboration of commercial artists performing themes, an idea that continued two years later with WWF Forceable Entry featuring hard rock artists and again with WWE Wreckless Intent featuring both rap and rock artists.

Notes[edit]

  • The Godfather and Kane had two tracks each initially. The versions that did not make it were on a demo disc. The Godfather's theme was performed by Slick Rick and Dana Dane and Kane's by Method Man. There was also another version of Vince McMahon's theme on the disc which was performed by the same artists and had the same lyrics as the final version, but the music sounded much more similar to the original "No Chance in Hell" used by McMahon.
  • Four of the tracks were actually used as entrance themes, Track 1, "The Kings" was used for several months for D-Generation X's entrance theme, and track 3 "Know Your Role" was used only once for the Rock's entrance, on SmackDown! following the release of the album. Big Show briefly used "Big" as his theme. The Godfather used "Pimpin' Ain't Easy" before he changed his gimmick.
  • For WrestleMania 2000, Track 10 was performed live by Ice-T. The Godfather, D'Lo Brown, and their top-shelf "hos" all made their way to the ring during "Pimpin' Ain't Easy".
  • Both Tracks 1 and 3 have their respective music videos.
  • 5 years after the release of Aggression, Track 4, "Hell Yeah" made it to Snoop Dogg's best of album "The Best of Snoop Dogg."
