"They can mute their televisions," White told MMA Junkie, referring to the fight fans who are forced to endure the screamed vocals and down-tuned guitars of the 2002 Stemm tune each time they tune into a UFC broadcast.
White says UFC supporters who don't like it should just mute their televisions when the 2002 Stemm song comes on.
Besides that, all fight fans can really do about it is continue to complain on MMA forums, as they have been doing for much of the past decade.
"What genre do you go with? I see the same things you see on the Internet, this nu-death metal or whatever the hell they call it," White said. "And it doesn't matter what genre of music you're into or what you like or what you think. … When you're in that arena and that thing goes off, it's like, 'Goddamn, there's going to be a fight tonight.' It really does get you fired up."
While White may still get fired up from the song, most of the rest of the world got rid of their nu-metal CD collections close to a decade ago.
As a small example of how far the nu-metal genre has fallen, Limp Bizkit, one of the top nu-metal acts of all-time, sold just 77,000 copies of their most recent album in the United States, a far cry from the 15 million records they sold in the late-90s and early-2000s.
Even though 11 years have passed since Stemm wrote "Face the Pain," White doesn't think it's time for the UFC to move to a more modern song.
"It's like retiring (Bruce) Buffer saying, 'It's time,'" White said. "You'd have to go out and find another piece that fit and was perfect and license it and go through all this crazy s--t, you know what I mean? It works."
