The Pittsburgh Steelers will honor legendary linebacker Kevin Greene by inducting him into the franchise’s Hall of Fame Sunday night. The Steelers will bring in some additional help to commemorate the moment.
The team announced legendary rock band STYX will join the festivities by singing the national anthem prior to Pittsburgh’s Sunday night showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs at Heinz Field. At halftime, the Steelers will honor Greene, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August. Greene will also receive his Hall of Fame ring during the ceremony, which will be televised on NBC.
The band will also dedicate its Oct. 1 concert at the Benedum Theatre in Pittsburgh to Greene, who has grown friendly with the band.
“I grew up in Southern Illinois a STYX fan,” Greene said in a press release. “It was great to finally meet the guys in 2001. We have been friends ever since, and I’m excited that my beloved Steelers have adopted the STYX song ‘Renegade’ as the unofficial Steeler fight song in the new millennium. Looking forward to a great concert Saturday in Pittsburgh. I’ll be there!!!”
The Steelers have a special connection with the band after their hit song “Renegade” was adopted by the team after a 2002 playoff victory against the Cleveland Browns. It’s been played during the third quarter of Steelers home games ever since.
