  • Elmer H from Westville, OkA few years ago I got their CD "Cage The Elephant" and love the whole album. This song has such an "in ya face" attitude about it that I love. And it sent a message to those in the music industry who had a fickle unsupportive air toward the band. We saw Cage The Elephant perform in Tulsa, OK. a few months ago. Top notch band! The rock stations in my area are playing more Elephant songs now. And I hear that their next album is to be released soon. Go Elephant Go.
