Cage The Elephant

Cage, is like a swift kick in the nuts, with hard hitting guitar riffs, cymbal smashing drum lines and vocals that will drop you on your head. Cage is unlike any other band I've heard before, its like a mix between Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Queens of the Stone Age and The Doors. I know sounds insane right? It's hard to explain the style of Cage, without actually hearing it.
To date Cage only has their self-titled album, but is it ever one hell of an album. Released in 2008, the album gained notably success and good reviews around. Now here's the fun part. You ever seen the trailer for the video game "Borderlands?" You know that song you hear, that has the catchy line? That's Cage the Elephant! For those of you have still have yet to hear anything by them, get on Youtube and search it, immediately after finishing this article.
I would say your facetious description is actually partially accurate.
You can check out their song "Ain't No Rest For The Wicked" Below.
