Randy Orton’s Theme Song: Who Sings It & What Are the Lyrics?

Among the most iconic themes in the WWE right now is that of Randy Orton. So what is this song that plays as Randy Orton enters the ring, who sings it, and what are its lyrics?

The Randy Orton theme is called “Voices,” and it’s by the band Rev Theory.

According to Bleacher Report, Rev Theory wrote the song specifically for Orton to use. Rich Luzzi, the lead singer of Rev Theory, actually traveled around with Randy Orton for a week prior to writing the song, and the lyrics were intended to reflect who Orton is as a character. Luzzi  says he wanted to get into the mindset of “a killer who had no control over his actions or environment.”

The song was written and recorded in 2008, and it has been used as Randy Orton’s theme ever since that time. Orton’s previous theme was “This Fire Burns” by Killswitch Engage, and before that, it was “Burn in My Light” by Mercy Drive, “Line in the Sand” by Motörhead, “Evolve” by Jim Johnston, and “Blasting” by Jim Johnston.

“Voices” is so popular that it was the title track on the album Voices: WWE The Music, Vol. 9, which was released in 2009.

Rev Theory has done plenty of other work with the WWE. They also provided the theme song for Wrestlemania 24, WWE One Night Stand, Extreme Rules 2011, and the WWE Network show Breaking Ground. At WrestleMania 30, they performed Randy Orton’s theme “Voices” live.

So what are the lyrics to the song, and what do they say about Orton’s character? Take a closer look at the lyrics to “Voices” below:

I hear voices in my head,
They council me
They understand
They talk to me

You got your rules and your religion
All designed to keep you safe
But when rules start getting broken
You start questioning your faith

I have a voice that is my savior
Hates to love and loves to hate
I have a voice that has the knowledge
And the power to rule your fate

I hear voices crying
I see heroes dying
I taste blood that’s drying
I feel tension rising

I hear voices in my head
They council me
They understand
They talk to me
They talk to me

They tell me things that I will do
They show me things I’ll do to you
They talk to me
They talk to me

All the lawyers are defenseless
All the doctors are disease
And the preachers’ are the sinners
And police just take the grease

All you judges you are guilty
All the bosses I will fire
All your bankers will have losses
Politicians are all the liars

I see darkness falling
I hear voices calling
I feel justice crawling
I see faith has fallen

I hear voices in my head
They council to me
They understand
They talk to me
They talk to me

They tell me things that I will do
They show me things I’ll do to you
They talk to me

I hear voices crying
I see heroes dying
I taste blood that’s drying
I feel tension rising

I hear voices in my head
They council me
They understand
They talk to me
They talk to me

They tell me things that I will do
They show me things I’ll do to you
They talk to me
They talk to me

My son has watched WWE and picked Randy Orton as his favorite since 2006. He memorized his song” voices”and his opening moves. He would wrestle large stuffed animals with RKO. He was all about Randy. He is almost 15 now and made it through an abusive situation. He was the viper to escape and it kept him going on a path of strength to survive. He moved out but still fights the battle……the voices in his head that he won’t forget. He is a very kind loving young man who can’t quite win the match of his life yet but I have faith he will defeat the demons that still haunt him. Randy Orton was the only hero he ever really had or still has.☺🐼☺
