METALLICA's 'Am I Savage?' To Serve As Official Theme Song For 'WrestleMania 33'

METALLICA's 'Am I Savage?' To Serve As Official Theme Song For 'WrestleMania 33'

METALLICA's "Am I Savage?" will serve as the official theme song for Triple H's "unsanctioned" match against Seth Rollins Sunday night (April 2) at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, Florida.

Rollins signed a "hold harmless" agreement for the match, so anything goes when the two wrestling stars step inside the ropes.

Triple H took to Twitter to thank METALLICA for "Am I Savage?" and to post a promotional video for the match.

"Am I Savage?" is taken from METALLICA's latest album, "Hardwired… To Self-Destruct", which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 album chart on November 27, selling 291,000 copies in its first week of release.

METALLICA previously released an official video for "Am I Savage?", featuring a man who moves through stark scenes surrounded by family, coworkers and others who all wear white body stockings that disguise their faces.

The "Am I Savage?" video was directed by the Brooklyn-based high-art photography duo Herring and Herring, who photographed METALLICA for the "Hadwired… To Self-Destruct" album package, and also helmed clips for "Halo On Fire" and "Now That We're Dead".

The long-awaited follow-up to 2008's "Death Magnetic", "Hardwired...To Self-Destruct" consists of two discs, containing a dozen songs and nearly 80 minutes of music.

"Hardwired...To Self-Destruct" was produced by Greg Fidelman with frontman James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich. The band recorded the disc at its own studio.
