Chris Jericho is a man of many talents. The ‘Demo God’ has been a full-time pro wrestler for three long decades. But alongside being a wrestler, he’s also a singer, podcaster, author, and entrepreneur! And just like any smart entrepreneur, Jericho found a way to make most of the quarantine.

Chris Jericho and his band Kuarantine make it to billboard top 25

Le Champion‘ Chris Jericho recently announced to the world that his band Kuarantine’s song, No No No, had reached #25 on the Mainstream Rock on Billboard in 2020. Jericho uploaded an image of the custom plaque he received from Billboard and thanked them for it.

For those not into the Rock genre, Kuarantine is a KISS tribute band. However, unlike other tribute acts, they only focus on the KISS music from the ’80s.

Chris Jericho is already a member of his own band Fozzy, but last year’s quarantine pushed the former AEW World Champion to do something productive.

Chris Jericho is really a man with a golden touch. Just look at the sheer brilliance here. Jericho’s friend, Kent Slucher, had approached him, and the rest is history.

The band named themselves ‘Kuarantine’ as they were formed when the world was under quarantine. In fact, they made the complete video song during the quarantine!

Kurantine’s ‘No No No’ premiered on May 15 last year. Hence, it’s a really big achievement for the song, which is a cover of the original one, to do so well on the Billboard charts.

Kuarantine hasn’t stopped after one song, as they’ve uploaded several more KISS covers, and we’re sure some of them will top the charts again next year.

All in all, it’s great to see that someone like Chris Jericho didn’t sit or sleep it out when there was nothing else to do. He made most of the free time he had and made something productive happen. It’s a lesson in life we can all learn from ‘Le Champion.’
