AEW owner, Tony Khan, has signed a multiyear agreement to use the Pixies hit “Where Is My Mind” as Orange Cassidy’s entrance music.
Khan spoke about the licensing agreement in a recent interview with Pitchfork.
“A few weeks ago, I played it for him, he said he loved it. I asked if he wanted to me to try to license it, he gave me his ‘thumbs up,’” Khan said. “I signed a multiyear agreement to use the song, and every use of the song in AEW will live in our content library forever in perpetuity.”
OC came out to the song for the first time during the recent AEW Dark: Elevation tapings on Wednesday, March 24.
“Where Is My Mind?” is the seventh track on Pixies’ 1987 album Surfer Rosa.
Khan also recently purchased the rights to the song that was used by Jungle Boy as entrance music during his tenure on the independent scene: “Tarzan Boy” by ’80s synth-pop group Baltimora.
Khan hasn’t been shy about throwing money around over things his critics would consider “a waste of resources.” But as long as his father, who owns multiple sports franchises, continues to accumulate money like there’s no tomorrow, Khan will continue to buy whatever and whoever he wants for his upstart wrestling promotion.
