"Animals" is a song recorded by Canadian rock band Nickelback. It was released in November 2005 as the second single from their fifth studio album, All the Right Reasons. The song is about a male who picks up his girlfriend after he gets his driver's license back. They drive away and proceed to have sex in the car acting wild like "animals," until the girl's father catches them in the act at the end of the song. The song was played at the 2011 Tribute to the Troops. The image on the cover shows animals mating, similar to single covers for 2000's "The Bad Touch" by The Bloodhound Gang and "Everything's Ruined" by Faith No More in 1992.
