Having been around the block several times the guys also know how to take their music seriously, while not themselves too seriously. The MegaSnake gents say: “We might grow older but we’ll never grow up”.
Anyway, here’s MegaSnake with their first single release Sun Don’t Shine. Enjoy!!!
So: What’s in a name?

A and B
Maybe playing covers by Whitesnake and Megadeath explains everything. Or then again nothing.
