The video for Mastodon’s “Asleep in the Deep” is definitely a bit surreal, but does star a cat.
Cats are indeed metal. We had a cat (black, of course) who was a devoted fan of Tommy Vance’s Friday Rock Show. Don’t try to claim it was just because he knew he’s be fed at the end of the show and had come to associate the sound of Tommy Vamce’s vpice with “food”. He surely had a deep and abiding love for the New Wave of British Heavy Metal.
Cats may be metal, but they aren’t punk. We had another cat who absolutely hated The Damned.
