Mudmen are a Canadian rock band that formed in Toronto, Ontario in 2000. Initially comprising vocalist Zoy Nicoles, guitarist Lonny Knapp, bassist Tommy Skilton, drummer Ryan McCaffrey and bagpipe-playing brothers Robby and Sandy Campbell. Zoy Nicoles, Lonny Knapp, Tommy Skilton and Ryan McCaffrey "2000-2004" have since been replaced with Travis Berlenbach, Alex Maletich, mario Bozza and Steve Volk. The Mudmen have released five studio albums—Mudmen (2001), Overrated (2003), Defending the Kingdom (2005), The High Road (2009) and Another Day (May 4, 2010).

The band are best known for their singles "5 O'Clock", "Saturday", and "Drink and Fight" as well as their covers of Spirit of the West's "Home for a Rest" and AC/DC's "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)". In addition, the band's music has been featured in popular culture—their single "Lost", from their self-titled debut, was featured in a promotional video for the NBC television show The Black Donnellys, and their single "Animal" was featured in the soundtracks of the video games Burnout 3: Takedown and MX vs. ATV UnleashedThe Campbell Brothers "founding members" appear on the Bob and Dougs 24 anniversary special and have music featured on don cherry's hockey video's 9,19,20. In 2008 Robby & Sandy Campbell were called in to help out in CBC's Hockey Night in Canada Anthem Challenge, in which they played the Bagpipes on Colin Oberst's "Canadian Gold", the winning anthem.

 The mudmen have recently recorded the music for the Edmonton Oilers tv show Oil Change 3.

The Brantford Blast are currently using the mudmen's song Go team Go as their entrance theme.
