Flickering Myth is saddened to learn that Chris Warren, best known as the singer of The Dx Band, has passed away at the age of 49. He will be best known for the tracks “Break It Down”, used by D-Generation X, and Triple H’s first solo theme “My Time”.
WWE.com wrote: “Warren’s voice epitomized the essence of WWE’s Attitude Era in the late ‘90s; his distressed, screeching rendition of ‘Break It Down’ to this day remains synonymous with the famed faction, and is considered by many among the WWE Universe as one of sports-entertainment’s greatest themes.”
Warren performed with The Dx Band at WrestleMania Xiv and Summerslam 1998, both of which are often mocked by fans for being hilariously bad. His performance of the national anthem was hated so much by the fans at WreslteMania Xiv that it has been removed from all home media versions of the show.
Flickering Myth would like to pass their condolences to the family and friends of Chris Warren.

It could be argued that of all the men and women to compete at WrestleMania, it is Bret Hart’s career that is most clearly represented and showcased through the event. ‘The Excellence of Execution’ started out with the World Wrestling Federation in 1984, and over the next 13 years would rise from tag team standout to in-ring general to the overall face of the company.
His WrestleMania record mimics this. Although he missed the first WrestleMania, Hart performed at every following WrestleMania up until WrestleMania Xiv, by which time he had jumped ship to World Championship Wrestling following the infamous Montreal Screwjob. It would be over a decade before he returned to the company, which also included one last WrestleMania ‘match’, although the use of that term is fairly liberal in this example.
His WrestleMania record is also one of wildly diverging match quality, as you will find out by reading on. »
