The PC Matic band is a group of South Carolina musicians dedicated to educating the public of the country's cyber security problems through music. The band made its debut on national TV in December 2017 on cable news channels such as Fox News, CNN and CNBC. We will continue to write songs and popularize the issue until the cyber attacks abate.
You guys rock hard.. Love this tune its very cool. Dont listen to the haters.
I'm a musician and I really like this song and this band. I don't know maybe I'm biased because old guys like us still know how to rock and actually know how to PLAY our instruments. The lead guitarist rocks!
Just saw your commercial on CNN Live. I love love it!!!
I catch myself singing it with my husband! Lol Love it!
What a great band!!!! Omfg!!!! They slayed it. I wouldn't be surprised if they tour in 2018. You would be hard pressed to find a singer like the lead singer in this video. His facial expressions proves he is singing from his soul.
Catchy tune, I like it. Those who know nothing obout music are not qualified to share their empty opinions. Get a life losers.
