I caught the end of a song on the radio this morning and I've been trying to find it ever since. I can only remember a part of the chorus when the whole band yells ANIMAL (or something that sounds like it). I think it's from the 80's but all my google'ing results have been laughable at best.


Not a lot to go on, but the first thing to come to mind is Animal by Def Leppard. It's an 80's song and likely to air on the radio.


I know you already found your song, but in case someone has a similar research, there is W.A.S.P. - Animal (Fuck Like a Beast):

  • Released in 1984
  • The singer yells "Like an Animal" several times during the chorus.
  • Not likely found on the radio though. Not even in the 80's. Dec 13 '19 at 18:21

Finally heard it again. . . It was Panama by Van Halen. I had a feeling I misheard the lyrics. . .


Not old (it was released in 2006), but:

Three Days Grace - Animal I Have Become?

The lyrics contain the phrase "the animal" repeated by the whole band, although it is in a deathly whisper rather than being yelled.
