FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – If you like hard-charging rock and roll with that gritty sound, then you’re going to like the sound of The Bayonets.

Formed in 2011 by Brian Ray and Oliver Leiber, these two guys who had already been working with each other decided to form their own band. Ray had worked with Paul McCartney before and spent a number of years with the late Etta James. Leiber has been on radio for 30 years and has written songs with Rod Stewart and Ke$ha.

A major contributor to the band is Lucrecia Lopez Sanz of the band Nube 9 from Argentina, who sings and plays guitar.

The group released five singles in 2013: “Sucker For Love,” “Smartphone,” “Vagabond Soul,” “Whatcha Got” and “Big Man Down.” But the song featured here is from 2014: “Crash Boom Bang!” Written and produced by Ray and Leiber, it became a hit on Sirius XM Channel 21 — Little Steven’s Underground Garage — and named one of the top five ‘cool songs’ in the world for 2014.

The group is based out of Los Angeles.

There were no lyrics that I could find but, you know what, we’re going to skip that portion and get right to the music! Enjoy!
