Downstait (@downstaitband) is a band from Fort Wayne, Indiana. They are known among pro wrestling fans for creating entrance themes for Cody Rhodes ("Kingdom"), The Miz ("I Came To Play"), Dolph Ziggler ("Here To Show The World" & "Perfection"), Alex Riley ("Say It To My Face"), Chelsea Green ("Hot Mess"), Britt Baker ("The Epic"), Buddy Matthews ("Secret No More"), Dustin Rhodes ("Goldstew"), Matt Cardona ("When The Lights Go Down") and many others. The lead singer, Zack Call joins Chris Van Vliet to talk about how Downstait formed as a band, how working on the MTV show "Bully Beatdown" lead to the first wrestling entrance theme they did, being discovered by legendary WWE Music Producer Jim Johnston, how Cody Rhodes was able to keep his "Kingdom" entrance theme when he returned to WWE, the Easter egg of the WOAH in Cody's theme, his Mount Rushmore of entrance themes and much more!
