Chase the Cat: 5 Amazing Rock Songs About Dogs

It looks like we aren't the only ones inspired by dogs! Whether they're singing lead vocals or the title's inspiration, these songs about dogs have left their mark on music. The next time you're going to make a Summer playlist, keep your furry friends in mind with these tunes.

1. Led Zeppelin — "Black Dog"
The song's title is a reference to a nameless black Labrador Retriever that wandered around the studios during recording.

2. Cat Stevens — "I Love My Dog"
A little ironic how much a man named Cat loves his dog?

3. Pink Floyd — "Madmoiselle Nobs"
The track is named after the dog who provided howling vocals in their 1972 film Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii. Madmoiselle Nobs stood in for the dog "Seamus" who originally provided howling accompaniment on the album version of the tune.

4. Aerosmith — "Walking the Dog"
Aerosmith covered this song by Rufus Thomas for their first very album in 1973.

5. George Clinton — "Atomic Dog"
This 1982 video is amazing. There is some serious doggy dancing animation going on. Snoop Dogg, Biz Markie, and 2Pac have all sampled the song's hook.

*sigh* Joe Perry can walk my dog any day of the week. Ok, I don't actually HAVE a dog. It's imaginary. But I choose to believe.

Well, I'm not sure the content of "Black Dog" is actually referencing a dog even though the title has the word dog. A better song from Zeppelin that actually talks about Robert Plant's dog at the time is "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp". I love this song and its all about a dog and the companionship and love between them. Great song!
