How Johnnie Made the Go Kart Racing Music for the WGRD Video

If you haven't checked out the video of Theory of a Deadman and Halestorm rockin the Go Kart Races with some GRD winners, at AJs Family Fun Center, check that out over here.

I wanted some music to put under the video, since GoPro driving video can be a little boring.  I wanted to use Theory of a Deadman and Halestorm music in it, but I didn't want YouTube to block the video for "Third Party Content".
