Musician Behind Wyatt Family Theme Talks Playing WrestleMania XXX, Meeting Bray Wyatt, WWE Discovering His Music & More

Mike Killam

Mark Crozer, the musician behind the Wyatt Family entrance theme "Live in Fear", recently did an interview with JourneyofaFrontman.com. 

How WWE and Bray Wyatt ended up finding his music: 

"Ages ago, between 1999 and 2000, I found out about this idea that you could, as an independent artist, get your music into TV shows. It was the organization called Taxi based in LA. I joined and it was completely new to me. I put that and other songs into this one music library and I guess they had a deal with another library that was servicing the WWE. Bray Wyatt was searching for a song for his theme music and he came across my song. I think he spent six hours or so listening to songs, that’s what he told me. And when he heard mine, right away, he just thought it was gonna be good for his character. They tried it out and it worked. And that was that."
Playing live at WrestleMania XXX:
They asked me to do it. I’d really been following the whole Bray Wyatt development over the last couple years. I knew that there was a good chance that he was gonna do Wrestlemania this year. I’d heard that they’d had bands occasionally to perform. I e-mailed my guy at WWE around Christmas time saying, “I’d love to do it.” And then they got in touch with me a couple months later to ask me to play.
Check out the complete interview featuring Mark's thoughts on meeting Bray Wyatt, the evolution of his character, how his song is being used in wrestling and a lot more.
