There have been plenty of talented wrestlers over the years, and Chris Jericho is one of the greatest of all time. But his talent extends beyond the ring, as he’s a bestselling author, podcast host and musician.

His goal is to reach the creators of the series and movie and make them aware of the song. I was happy to give it a listen and enjoyed what I heard.
The Pop Culture Playlist is a list of ten tracks that describes the journey of a superhero or villain. With Spider-Man: Homecoming just around the corner, I figured it’s the perfect time to put the spotlight on everyone’s favourite wall-crawler.
