“Pop Evil is all killer, no filler.”
And it’s hard to disagree, especially after listening to heaters like Art of War, God’s Dam and Walking Lions, one of last year’s most spun rock radio songs. Pop Evil creates music that incorporates metal, alternative, hard rock and all the best bits of electronic music.
Originally formed in North Muskegon, MI, by Leigh Kakaty back in 2001, Pop Evil worked to clearly define their sound with their self-titled release. Distorted guitars. Machine-gun bass-lines. Heavy beats. Pop Evil’s music balances out that aggression with songs that show far more social grace and political awareness than your average rock band.
“I just felt like this was going to be a great opportunity to write an anthemic type of lyrical song that could positively motivate people.”
ABOUT “BE LEGENDARY” MUSIC VIDEO
For their anthem “Be Legendary,” Pop Evil once again teamed up with American film director Columbia Tatone. They’ve previously worked together on the group’s last three videos — “A Crime to Remember,” “Waking Lions,” and the timely and poignant “Colors Bleed.” Known for her keen ability to blend cinematic action with relevant storytelling, Tatone often champions the underdogs, incorporating elements of science fiction in her work.
This story is [. . .] about friendship and togetherness. A reminder that although life doesn’t always ‘play fair,’ know that our trials are a gift as you [. . .] earn the victory on the climb back up.
But in a song that calls for us to be legendary, it made perfect sense to add another collaborator in the mix, legends in the light electric vehicle (LEV) game — SWAGTRON®. We supplied all of the electric bikes seen in the video — EB5 Pro Electric Bike and the EB7 Elite Electric Bike — as well as Swagcycle eBikes as prizes for Pop Evil’s nationwide giveaways coinciding with the band’s current tour.
The anthemic flavor of Pop Evil’s “Be Legendary” song and video aligned perfectly with our goals as a company — to create a fleet of rideables that encourage personal growth through getting active and staying engaged. Engaged with each other and with the world around us.
