Nickelback: Animals Meaning
Song Released: 2005
Get "Animals" on MP3:Get MP3 from Amazon
Just got my license back
I got this feeling in my veins this train is coming off the track
I'll ask polite if the devil needs a ride
Because the angel on my right ain't hanging out with me tonight
This song is written from the first person, in the view of a teenager/young male adult. The songs mainly refers to having fun and being somewhat rebellious. The song's verses refer to the main character and his girlfriend riding in a car, when the song moves to the chorus the song becomes more heavy as the guitar joins in and the lyrics start refering to the 2 characters sticking up for their right to do what they want, in this case it is refering to sexual intercourse.

um......first of all, if you're writing comments that are bitching about the song, you have no reason to comment at all. second, dont act like youre all fuckin high and mighty.....third, this is an awesome song and yes, its kinda perverted, but its just as bad as all that rap shit thats out there. at least nickelback dont hide what he thinks.....its "'bam!' in your face" about it, to quote someone else :)

For the longest time I was really confused about the first line because I thought they said, "I'm driving like I'm black,"

this is a dirty but epic song. Its so different to all the crap that gets out there these days. its one of those songs which doesnt have the hidden 'dirtyness'. its "bam!" in your face. these days, so much crap out there is about girls not knowing that they are beautiful and crap like that. Dont know about other gals, but this song relates to me and makes me feel much more special than most other shit out there. And anyway, if you dont like the lyrics, ya gotta admit, those riffs are fucking legend!!

I think its kinda clear,
Two young people who think there in love screwin around and get caught. She's prbly a good girl who thinks she can change a guy and thinks they'll end up together forever. It's cute <3

Chad has said before that this song like several other songs that he has written is autobiographal. The part that he mentions about her dad being outside the car, he claims that this actually happened to his mom and dad. But how can you hate on this song it's an amazing song that every teenager can relate to.

Hi, i'm a professional dancer. i would like to make a showreel with regard to my promotions. I also want to use some animation. Can someone suggest me a fantastic animation studio, but not really very expensive? I'm here for 3 months for a tour.

It's not about cheating! The "Angel" and "Devil" are the good thoughts and the bad thoughts.
He means they aren't going to be good tonight :)

This song is about 2 teenagers doing what most of us did at some point in their teenage years. It's about young hormones, passion, and rebellion. Not all of our fathers caught us, but I think at least 70% of you can relate to the subject. And btw, I dont see anything disgusting with this song. Sex is something that just about everyone will do at least once in their lifetime and theres nothing dirty about it.

This song is about sex. nothing more, nothing less

Very cool song. It's all about sex, which is what rock n' roll is all about. Understand the origin of the term? "Rock" and "roll" is a literal description movements involved in the sex act. "Animals" is one of the few songs to take rock back to these roots--anyone who disagrees should stay away from rock. Like it or not, this is the real deal.
