The Animals are a great proto-punk garage blues rock band. Still one of my all time favorite bands. Eric's voice is outstanding - one of the best singers I've ever heard. And Steel, Valentine, Price and Chandler are great musicians. ---> Much love to The Animals. <3

  • Eric's voice... oh God!
  • Their original songs were good too. I don't think any of you haters even bothered to listen to many of their other songs that weren't covered. Either way, fuck y'all.. The Animals were a good band of the 60's and British Invasion.
