Kansas Happy With The Elite Using 'Carry On Wayward Son'
Ronnie Platt of Kansas speaks about Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks' use of his band's classic hit.
Classic rock band Kansas are apparently happy with The Elite's use of their hit 'Carry On Wayward Son' in AEW.
Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks recently started using the song as their entrance theme during the Best-of-Seven series against Death Triangle for the AEW World Trios Championships. Kansas' keyboardist and vocalist Ronnie Platt gave his opinion on the song's use while speaking to Paltrocast, stating:
"I saw that video where they're walking out in the stadium and all the people are going nuts. That's just good for the band. That's good promo and really introducing Kansas, even though the kids might not know who the band is or haven't heard the song before. It really is initiating young people to that music. So that's all good; we call that job security."
'Carry On Wayward Son' was released by Kansas in 1976 and peaked at number 11 on the US Billboard Hot 100. It has since become a staple classic rock hit, selling over 4 million units in the United States and receiving quadruple platinum certification.
