Cage the Elephant
Topic. Sixteen Tons is one of my favorite songs of all time, and Cage The Elephant is my favorite band. Their style would fit the song perfectly. Merle Travis had this twang. Tennessee Ernie Ford is obviously classic, but dated now. Johnny Cash and ZZ Top did good covers, but both were missing that certain twang. Cage has that twang and can pull off the best cover of the song ever.
Hey guys, I think, cage the elephant is my new favorite band, melophobia is so good! Do you know some similar music? But of course also aberdeen, shake me down and other single songs from them.
From other bands, I also recently really like some big singles from the red hot chili peppers, before that I got into some of awolnation and the strokes (/julian casablancas songs), any recommendations?
Pretty wide taste but at the moment, I feel like it's just indie/alternative rock. I assume, many of you know at least some alternatives to cte, don't want to only have like 3 songs on loop so they will get boring over time :) (happened with ain't no rest for the wicked and now I can't listen to it anymore)
EDIT: What I also really like, maybe that's weird for longer fans, I donno, is some of their music videos, always like it for a first listen of a song, if it also has a great music video, like come a little closer or aberdeen. Helps me associate the song/ band with something.
Videos from other Bands, I also liked are for example ode to the mets (strokes), float on (modest house), handlebars (flobots), dark necessities (RHCP) or beds are burning (awolnation) (most of these just because of the overall vibe, just to see a bit, what the song/ the band is about)
so any individual songs with great mv's also welcomed :)
