Steel Wolf is a Lithuanian-American rock band from Long Island, New York. Described as playing “music to incite a riot”,[1] Steel Wolf took their name from Lithuanian folklore[2] in 1982 and is still active today. Aside from archetypal venues, they have performed annually at the NYC Marathon[3] and the Lithuanian Camp Giraite in Connecticut.[4] Their releases not only contain music with “bar brawl-ready song titles” but also tracks like “Himnas 2010” - a version of the Lithuanian National Anthem. As Long Island Good Times magazine put it "Steel Wolf blends punk anachronisms with Lithuanian mythology.” [5]
