Best Roar Bands: Bands The Embrace The Animal Within

>> Wednesday, October 19, 2011

So, previously we've brought you, The Edible Music list, The Best Bands With #'s in Their Names list, and my personal favorite, The Bands That Lie list. And now, to join that elite group of awesome lists, we bring you The Best Roar Bands; bands that embrace their inner animal. That's just a fancy way to say, best bands with animals in their names.

Now, this was a fun list to write, but I had the opposite problem with this one, then I did with the others listed above. When I was writing those, I had so much trouble filling out the lists of 13 with credible bands, but this list, I started out with 50+ bands that I could make a case for, and ended up narrowing down to these 30.

In the order that I think is best, comment if you quibble, here are the best Animal bands. And no, I did not overlook Def Leppard. A Leppard is not an animal, a Leopard is. Do you see the discrepancy? Hope you enjoy.
