Cage The Elephant

Cage the Elephant is a rock band from Kentucky. Contrary to the implication of their name, they have not ever been accused of cruelty towards animals.

Depending on how you feel about normal clothing, this could be either a good or a bad result.

Just The Facts

  1. Cage the Elephant writes songs about people who are just, you know, being people and stuff. You know, people have...flaws, you know. Like, and we're all the same cause we're all people. And stuff.

Band Members

The lead singer is named Matthew Shultz. He's the one who wobbles around the stage and then vomits all over the front row, all the while giving off a flourescent orange glow from the laced canine tranquilizers he took before the show.

"He'll be okay in a day or two. Just don't get to close, his tears can burn through skin."

The other band members are much less likely to urinate in their pants on stage, but having been cooped up their whole lives in Kentucky, they are ready to destroy pretty much any venue they play in.

"All right, now remember: We're very sorry they had to lug all that gear up here, but Cage the Elephant is not playing the Vatican!"


Cage the Elephant knows a bit 'bout rockin. Their single "Aint No Rest For the Wicked" has been hummed by about 99.9% of the population, the other .1% being annoyed grammarians insisting that the title could be changed to "There Is No Rest For the Wicked."

Cage the Elephant responds to this by setting a rabid Matt Schultz loose in their homes.


"You know what? Just forget all that stuff I said about double negatives."

I don't know much about their future plans, but if I had to guess I'd say that Cage the Elephant is going to be relying heavily on the sounds of musical instruments.

Being Awesome thinks Cage the Elephant is pretty awesome. You do too, if you know what's good for you.

Matt Schultz doesn't respond well to flash photography or the sound of cheering.
