On the heels of Distance reaching number one at Active Rock radio, Mammoth WVH is releasing two new tracks to the masses. Don’t Back Down is the anthemic new single for rock radio and is destined to cater to the fans of the harder sound of Mammoth WVHAn official music video is also being released that showcases Wolfgang Van Halen performing the song on all of the instruments – something he did throughout the entire debut album. It also illustrates his lighthearted side that fans following him on social media have already experienced. The video for Don’t Back Down can be seen below. The other track being released is Think It Over – a song that Wolfgang wanted to share to showcase the diversity of the album. It shows a different side of Mammoth WVH as he ventures in to a more pop-rock world with that track (listen below).

    I never really realized how much Wolfie looks like Chumlee! 😉 Good song, familiar music, but I like it! Really like the album cover 😉 Only March, but from what I’ve heard so far definitely a candidate for album of the year! – never happen though, Rock is now excluded in America…

      The video you might be thinking of is “Coming Up” by Paul McCartney (1980).

    • Dana on


      I know you are bringing up the video for means of comparison, but despite being a huge Beatles fan, that song is terrible-LOL!

    • Doug R. on

      Bingo! That’s the video! I think there is also a more recent video from somebody else who had the same idea, bugging me that I can’t remember!

  • Dana on

    Wolfie is a great talent, and the video is very clever.

    • Doug R. on

      I’m not really a fan of Alanis Morissette, but Wolfie’s video kinda reminds me of the “Ironic” video, – same person playing different characters. And I know there was another one, just can’t think of it at the moment…

    • Dana on

      Alanis who? 😉 Whiny as the day is long, at least Wolfie can sing and play every instrument.

    • Doug R. on

      Absolutely, totally agree! I was just comparing a similar video idea of the same artist playing different “characters.” And again, I know somebody else did that, just can’t remember who…

      Wolfie’s album already got my vote for album of the year, not that my vote counts 😉

  • T on

    Didn’t know what to expect, but I liked it. I would call it modern melodic rock.

    • RobT on

      I know this is a little late, but Doug could you be thinking about the Foo Fighters- Learning to Fly video?
      Dave Grohl & Taylor Hawkins play a few different characters each in that video, and that’s what I was thinking when watched Wolf’s video.
      I think these songs from WVH are really good and can’t wait to hear more.

    • Doug R. on

      Thank you, Rob! That’s the one! I can’t believe I couldn’t remember the video, I mean, I love the Foo’s, love that song, and that video! I guess maybe because it’s been a long time since I seen the video is the reason why I couldn’t remember.

    Don’t want to relive the dreary 90s, but I’m sure Eddie would have got a kick outta the video. Songs are great and looking forward to getting the album. He does come from a family of musicians, and actors, he coulda have gone either way. Eddie did have a small part in Robocop.

  • Doug on

    Everything I’m hearing so far has been great, really looking forward to getting this album.
