Remember when we told you that various members of ‘90s boy bands would be teaming up to fight zombies in a new TV movie called Dead 7? A trailer was released, our hearts were bursting with nostalgia… but there was something missing: a new song to soundtrack our excitement about seeing BSB and NSYNC united at last; their years-long beef finally laid to rest.
Now, we finally have that song — and it’s the perfect cheesy callback to your fave boy bands of yesteryear.
“In The End” (no, it’s not a Linkin Park cover) boasts an all-star lineup of ex-boy banders: Nick Carter, A.J. McLean, and Howie Dorough from Backstreet Boys, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick from NSYNC, Jeff Timmons from 98 Degrees, and Erik-Michael Estrada from O-Town. Together, they created a harmony-heavy country-pop ballad that’s hella formidable: “Don’t look back/ Nothing’s gonna save us in the end,” they sing/warn. OK, so it’s not exactly “I Want It That Way,” but do remember this song is for a movie about our heroes saving a post-apocalyptic small town from encroaching zombies. A little dread factor is necessary.
Dead 7 premieres April 1 on SyFy (don’t be fooled by the holiday; this is definitely NOT a joke and will be taken 100% seriously. What else would you expect from the people who brought you Sharknado?). Revisit the trailer below and grab “In The End” as a free download here.
