Did you know that it's National Lion Day? Well, it is! Yes really. To celebrate such a prestigious day, here are some of the times that lions and rock music has crossed over! Sorry.
BURY TOMORROW - 'LIONHEART'
To have a lion's heart to is be strong, brave and bold. In the case of Bury Tomorrow it also means to have the ability to write riffs that could cut diamonds.
TONIGHT ALIVE - 'LITTLE LION MAN'
Originally by everybody's favourite waistcoat wearing folk band Mumford & Sons, Tonight Alive roared into life with this little beauty. We still aren't really sure what a small lion/man hybrid would look like, but we're sure it would be adorable.
LIONHEART - 'LOVE DON'T LIVE HERE'
We had to use this opportunity to shout out our favourite West Coast bruisers Lionheart. If you like hardcore that feels like a brick hitting the back of your head, this lot are for you.
WEEZER - 'ISLAND IN THE SUN'
We're still not sure how Weezer pulled this one off, but here they are playing with LION CUBS. LOOK AT THEIR LITTLE CUTE FACES AND SHARP TEETH. THEY JUST WANT TO PLAY BUT NOT TOO ROUGH OK.
PATTY WALTERS - 'I JUST CAN'T WAIT TO BE KING'
THIS IS THE BEST AND CUTEST THING WE HAVE EVER SEE PATTY YOU ARE PRECIOUS AND MUST BE PROTECTED AT ALL COSTS.
LIVING WITH LIONS - 'TIDAL WAVE'
Trust us when we say that Living With Lions are one of the most underrated pop-punk bands currently doing the circuit. Be it their '11 break-up classic 'Holy Shit' to their latest single 'Tidal Wave', they are up there with the best.
CHUGGABOOM - 'THREE LIONS '18'
We are still recovering from World Cup fever and Skinner & Baddiel's 'Three Lions' still runs through our heads at least once a day. It also spawned this outrageous cover by everybody's favourite anonymous moshers.
FALL OUT BOY - 'YOUNG VOLCANOES'
WHEN ROME'S IN RUINS, WE ARE THE LIONS, FREE OF THE COLOSSEUMSSSSSSSSSSSS.
