There is a campaign among wrestling fans in the U.K. to get Fandango's WWE theme song to the top of the U.K. music charts. For the last few hours, the campaign has seen the song skyrocket. As of this writing, it is up to No. 26 overall and No. 28 on the iTunes charts.
The campaign has become the top trending topic on Twitter. The goal seems to be to create a wrestling version of when Rage Against the Machine reached No. 1 on Christmas Day 2009 thanks to a similar campaign.
If they can keep the song in the top 40, it'll get mainstream radio air play in the U.K. on the weekend top 40 countdown shows.
