Chris Warren, American musician, Died at 49

Christopher P. Warren was born on May 27, 1967, and died on June 12, 2016.

He was an American musician

Warren performed in numerous bands, his last was New York band Bro-Kin.

Chris was best known for being the lead singer in The DX Band (sometimes referred to as The Chris Warren Band), a group who performed the entrance theme of professional wrestling stable D-Generation X called “Break It Down”.

For four years, Warren recorded several songs for the WWF(E).

During 1998, he made his television debut at WrestleMania XIV, performing a screeching version of “America The Beautiful” and The Star-Spangled Banner, for which he was booed heavily, as the fans and national media in attendance considered the performance disrespectful and of poor quality.

However, that performance was never released on home video and is also completely edited out of the recent WWE Network version of the show.

Chris’s last appearance was a cameo on the Run-D.M.C. “The Kings” music video, directed by David Sahadi. Warren, along with Bro-Kin, recorded an unreleased song for WWE’s Tough Enough II which never made it onto the show.

Some time in July 2007, Chris and Bro-Kin signed an agreement with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), which involved use of the band’s music on TNA’s TV shows (such as TNA Impact!), PPVs and DVDs worldwide.

Chris Warren returned to WWE headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut in August 2009 to record vocals to a new DX theme, coinciding with the return of the D-Generation X stable consisting of Triple H and Shawn Michaels, to active WWE competition.

His recording session saw a re-united in the studio with WWE music composer Jim Johnston for the first time in over 7 years.

Chris Warren passed away at 49 yrs old.
