The Real McKenzies is a Canadian Celtic punk band founded in 1992 and based in Vancouver, British Columbia.

They have shared stages with many other bands including Rancid, DragStrip Riot, NOFX, Flogging Molly, Xcrosscheckx, The Misfits, Metallica, Voodoo Glow Skulls and Shane MacGowan.[citation needed] They were contracted by InBev to promote the Kokanee beer brand in a 1990s television marketing campaign.[citation needed] Their music was recently used in the 2008 British-Canadian film Stone of Destiny.[citation needed]. They released their latest album, entitled Westwinds, on the March 27, 2012 with Fat Wreck Chords.
