Cage The Elephant

did everything exactly the way a young rock band should do it nowadays: Moving from Kentucky to London, playing some of the most voracious shows, entering the UK single charts shorty after, showcasing at SXSW and getting signed right away, having a song on a video game and performing on David Letterman’s show as well as Lollapalooza. And all this within four years.

Which song do you listen to when...
you ride a bicycle?
Beck - Mutherfucker

I'm a paranoid biker!

you want to disturb your neighbours?
Primus - My Name is Mud

Cause he’s a rude son of a bitch!

you are love sick?
My Morning Jacket - Hopefully

Just listen to it, then you will know what I mean.

you wake up?
Thom Yorke - Atoms For Peace

By far my favorite Thom Yorke song. It’s a beautiful song and it makes me happy. What else does a person need in a song to get their day started?

you walk in the rain?
Burt Bacharach - Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head

It always played at this theme park I worked at when it was raining.
