Chris Jericho Reveals AEW Tried To Get AC/DC's 'Back In Black' For The Inner Circle's Return
AEW has been licensing more music in recent weeks
Chris Jericho has revealed other music AEW has tried to get licensed, including asking AC/DC permission to use 'Back In Black' for when the Inner Circle did their return promo.
AEW have started to use more licensed music for their wrestlers’ entrance themes in recent weeks. Jon Moxley has utilised 'Wild Thing' while Orange Cassidy has used 'Where Is My Mind' and Jungle Boy has had 'Tarzan Boy'.
The Demo God has now revealed how All Elite Wrestling tried to get AC/DC's 'Back In Black' for when The Inner Circle returned, after being attacked by The Pinnacle, only to not hear back from the brand.
Speaking on the Two Man Power Trip Of Wrestling podcast, Jericho said: "We actually tried to get ‘Back In Black’ for our return promo after we attacked The Pinnacle in our dressing room, and they wouldn’t even give us the time of day.
"There’s been other ones. We wanted Van Halen, right after Eddie died, we wanted to use ‘Running With the Devil’, they came back with ‘$500,000’. Well that’s just a polite way of saying ‘no f*cking way.’ AC/DC didn’t even come back with that. Then I see them on an Applebee’s commercial using ‘Back In Black’, so I guess they’re fans of the baby back ribs or something like that.
"I thought the whole concept of Back In Black fit. It’s a saying that everybody knows. It rolls off the tongue, and it fits the mindset of what we’re doing. We’re coming back more focused, serious, and darker. That’s kind of how it’s been throughout this whole return."
