The Dan Band is a band from Los Angeles, California, created by actor/comedian Dan Finnerty. The band is well known for its covers of originally female-performed pop songs, with added obscenities and swearing.

Dan has made notable appearances in the movies Old School (singing "Total Eclipse of the Heart"), The Terminal, and Starsky & Hutch, where he performed Roberta Flack's "Feel Like Makin' Love" at a Bat Mitzvah. The Dan Band subsequently appeared on the Old School soundtrack. In 2005, they released The Dan Band Live, their live full length debut album. They gained attention due to their expletive-heavy version of Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart," as well as their cover versions of "Lady" by Styx, "Milkshake" by Kelis, Toni Basil's "Mickey," and many others.

They filmed a one hour concert special of their live show called Dan Finnerty & The Dan Band: I Am Woman, for the Bravo network, which was directed by McG and executive produced by Steven Spielberg. On November 13, 2007, the band released a Christmas LP called Ho: A Dan Band Christmas through Reincarnate Records and Dave Matthews' label ATO Records. The album consisted completely of original Dan Band songs, with no covers. Songs on the album include "Ho, Ho, Ho" (a smooth R&B Christmas song about a prostitute) "Merry Christmakwanzakah", "Please Don't Bomb Nobody This Holiday" and "I Wanna Rock You Hard This Christmas." The video for "Please Don't Bomb Nobody This Holiday" is available on Crackle. They've made repeat appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show as the house band, as well as appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Late Show, Last Call with Carson Daly and CD USA.
