Fang penned one of the best punk songs of all time, "The Money Will Roll Right In," a track that has been covered either in the studio or on-stage by the likes of Nirvana, Mudhoney, and Metallica. Fang hailed from Berkeley, CA, and their peak creative period was during the early '80s, when they released such underground punk favorites as Landshark and Where the Wild Things Are. Although Fang never received the attention that some of their colleagues did, Landshark/Where the Wild Things Are shows that they could riff and snarl with the best of 'em.

FANG is an American hardcore band that formed in Berkeley, California in 1980. They rode the first wave of punk, releasing four successful albums, LANDSHARK in 1982, WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE in 1983, SPUN HELGA in 1985, and A MI GA SFAFAS in 1986. The band initially broke up in 1989 when vocalist Sam Mcbride was incarcerated for murder, but reformed upon his release from prison in 1995. Since then they have had four more successful releases, including 2012's HERE COME THE COPS. They will be flying in to play a string of shows in and around the state of Florida in December, specifically to be present for this film release. Their original guitarist Tom Flynn will also be joining them for this special occasion.
