eONE Rock artist POP EVIL, joined by legendary artist DMC of RUN-DMC, will open each ACC NETWORK telecast of the 2014 ACC men's basketball tournament. POP EVIL's #1 single, "Trenches," has been remixed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and will be featured in the opening video montage to lead into each game.
"POP EVIL and DMC have collaborated on an impressive song that really embodies the energy and passion of the ACC Tournament," said RAYCOM SPORTS producer DAVE BARRINGER, who created the opening sequence. "'Trenches' focuses on the power to control your future, which translates well into the teams fighting their way to the prestigious ACC Championship. By customizing the lyrics, POP EVIL and DMC have captured the growth and change of the ACC Tournament and the teams, from 1954 to the present."
Ironically, POP EVIL's lead singer LEIGH KAKATY was a finalist for MICHIGAN's Mr. Basketball Award in high school, averaging 31 points per game as a senior at NORTH MUSKEGON High School.
