Rock Songs For Dogs!
Man's best friend may just rock as hard as we do. Now before you pick up your punk rockin' pup and get him to throw the paws up to make some horns and officially turn him into a demon dog, remember, K9's have very sensitive hearing, so even though we may like it cranked, your musically minded mutt might not. That being said, I was inspired to make this list just this morning. I was cleaning my house, rocking to 94.5 KATS, when AC/DC's "Giving A Dog A Bone" came on the radio. I looked at my little dog Rusty (pictured) his tail started wagging and he started jumping. Obviously the hopefully start of a fuzzy & furry mosh pit of one. Or he just got excited because I looked at him. Either way, I was like, "Hell Yeah Dawg! This song's your jam!" Which got me thinking, what other jam's might dogs like. So I bring you, in no particular order, my picks of the best rock songs for dogs.
Alice In Chains - Them Bones: You're going to see the theme of bones often in this list. Dogs love bones! In fact, many believe that is the reason why Dogs lick us so much, not because they love us and our friends, but they see us as gigantic tootsie pops and are curious how many licks it takes to get to the center... to the bone!
Elton John - The Bitch Is Back: When any male dogs get that feeling, they're looking for one of 3 things: their favorite pillow, a leg, or a lady dog, i.e. a bitch.
The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Foxy Lady: A cousin of the dog in the animal kingdom, I can see a dog digging a song about a fox!
Baha Men - Who Let The Dogs Out: Yes not a rock song, but Rusty insisted I put it on the list... either that or he needed to use the tree.
AC/DC - Givin' The Dog A Bone: The song that became the brainchild for this list. It has a bone, it has a dog, it has someone giving that dog that bone, what wouldn't a pooch love about this tune!
Duran Duran - Hungry Like The Wolf: Yes, this song is about a predator who should be on an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, but all my dog hears is "hungry" and "wolf" (another doggie cousin).
Ozzy Osbourne - Bark At The Moon: This one is obvious, there's a moon... it's not gonna bark at it's self!
George Thorogood & The Destroyers - Bad To The Bone: Even though he's always a good boy, (like all dogs are good boys & girls), that's what makes this song such a favorite (I assume). It lets them let out their inner beast, before being told "no", "stop" & "leave it". Plus it's another bone song, and once again, show me a dog that doesn't love bones, and I'll show you a cat!
