Fin (not to be confused with British rock band Fin_(band)) were a British alternative rock band formed in 1993, who achieved mild success on the independent circuit in the UK.

Their initial release, "Headstrong", was financed by money received from the BBC, after the company used a video clip of a Fin song in a film version of the Roddy Doyle novel The Snapper.[1] They toured regularly, including support slots for bands as diverse as Tindersticks and The Cranberries. Their debut album Positive (which was mainly a singles compilation) was well received by critics,[2] but sold poorly and the band split up in 1997. In 2008, frontman Johnny Daukes returned with a new band, All Our Good Friends.[3]
