7 Awesome Animal Themed Music Videos

Sometimes it's not all about us humans, you know

Modest Mouse just released their video for “Coyotes” and would you look at that…the video features a coyote riding public transit. Take a look at the music video for “Coyotes” and other artists who decided to show off their animal counterparts.

MODEST MOUSE – “COYOTES”

“Coyotes” will appear on Modest Mouse’s upcoming record Strangers to Ourselves, out March 3rd.

TOKYO POLICE CLUB – “WAIT UP (BOOTS OF DANGER)”

One drumstick stealing dog turns into ten dogs who rule the streets and go for a swim in a backyard pool. Looks like there is no reason for the dogs in this video other than being cute and causing trouble.

OUTKAST – “MS. JACKSON”

Owls, cats and dogs-this video has it all. After this came out in 2000, I would use a laser pen light to make my cat dance to the music too. Once upon a time I was a sad, sad crazy cat lady.

WEEZER – “ISLAND IN THE SUN”

The guys in Weezer get up close and personal with some wild animals. This video is really cool and was probably a lot of fun to film.

HOLY FUCK – “RED LIGHTS”

Oh my God! A cat is driving a car. Cats are performing in an air band. I am going feline crazy over this video from Toronto’s Holy Fuck.

OK GO – “WHITE KNUCKLES”

This is my favourite animal video. There are a dozen dogs and a single goat. These dogs were expertly trained for two weeks to perform all kinds of cute stunts for this one-shot video. Not to mention the band also spent one of those weeks getting friendly with the pups. Fun fact: they were all RESCUE DOGS and have since found furever homes.

HALL & OATES – “MANEATER”

Gotta include my favourite band of all time in this list. Hall & Oates’ “Maneater” features a Panther. Daryl Hall has been quoted as saying it probably costed ten thousand bucks to have the panther in the video for ten seconds. Worth it.
