Plastic Fang is the seventh official release by the American punk blues group The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, released on Matador in 2002. "She Said" was released as a single and a music video was filmed for it. In the video, Jon Spencer is a vampire being hunted by nuns whom he eventually seduces into a striptease en masse, before fighting and dying at the hands of a vampiress.

This album features guest appearances by Dr. John, Bernie Worrell and Willie Weeks and design by Chip Kidd. There are several different versions of this release, and some of them had a DVD included with the album, called Fang Visual,[3] the most complete of which is the Australian release.[4]
