Beards, pop and rock n' roll. That's Red Fang in a nutshell.

Formed in 2005, and coming out of Portland, Oregon, Red Fang have put out two albums, and are currently signed to metal specialists Relapse.

You can bang your head if you like, but what's great about these guys is the poppy flavour running through their latest album, Murder the Mountains. And it's in full effect here, on the track Wires.

It's like The Monkees meets The Melvins. Which is awesome.

PS - This might also be my favourite music video of 2011.

Soundtrack isn't news. It isn't video games. It's just Kotaku editors sharing music they dig. Enjoy!
