WWE legend and the pro-wrestling company's music composer Jim Johnston, has composed the entrance tune for not just the Undertaker, but the Rock, Kane, Sting, Stone Cold Steve Austin, etc, as well. 

Check out this rare demo of Undertaker's theme music played by Jim at his studio:

"He's a dead guy," that's the pitch WWE gave Jim to compose the Undertaker's entrance music. "Sad and mournful" remained the base of Jim's thought process as he started composing the mystical music.

Jim Johnston mentioned that his demo tune was later modified with the sound of a gigantic church organ, a tabernacle choir, two death bells combined with a bass guitar....almost as if it was the soundtrack of a film that was titled, the Undertaker.
