My southern rock act Crossfyre recently covered the famous Badstreet USA classic by Michael “P.S.” Hayes of The Fabulous Freebirds fame from the world of professional wrestling.  Now, we’ve gone a step further and filmed a music video, plagiarizing the original video from 1987.

Michael Hayes originally recorded and released Badstreet USA as a single in 1983, which his tag team trio of The Fabulous Freebirds (comprised of Hayes, Buddy Jack Roberts and Terry Gordy) used as their official ring entrance theme henceforth.

Hayes is widely regarded as the first-ever rocker/wrestler, creating his own, original music before anyone else jumped on the bandwagon. The song has only once been covered by punk act Antiseen and now finally, come 2019, Crossfyre did the honors.

Now, for the first time in known history, a current rocker/wrestler pays homage to a classic rocker/wrestler in covering the most well-known wrestling rock theme in pro wrestling lore.  As arguably the most accomplished and acclaimed pro wrestler out of Northern Europe, I’m proud to be the catalyst that made this project happen.  Sit back and enjoy our Crossfyre rendition and you can catch the song otherwise in iTunes and Spotify.
