White Rabbits, Gull, and Other Successful Animal Rock Bands
Nasty Little Man
Indie rockersWhite Rabbits
are coming up fast and now they're on their way to potentially making it big. They recently appeared on theLate Show With David Letterman
, and they released a fantastic music video for their single"Heavy Metal"
in support of their albumMilk Famous
, which also just came out.
Charlie Brand and his boys have a sound that tends to have a certain effect on people that's anything but miniature.
Adam Duritz's huge hair looks like it's full of secrets...or maybe a nest of crows that are about to fly out at any second.
Don Henley, Joe Walsh and the others have found immense success over the years and even have one of the best selling albums of all time. Their name works for them though; they make strong impressions, and their music is just so American.
The alt-country band that started out as a solo project grew in size and fame, gradually gaining both notoriety and more band members over the years.
Band of Horses
As another band for whom the animal name theory worked nicely, Band of Horses ended up being the opener for Kings of Leon on the road this past summer...or what was left of a tour, anyway, since Caleb Followill's issues made him pussy out.
Isaac Brock and his band have found more than just modest success. Their name seems fitting, considering their music isn't very loud or in your face.
This trippy group is known for their "sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't" experimental ways. At the very least, these animal dudes made a big splash with their Merriweather Post Pavilion album.
