Back Against the Wall is easily the coolest mellow song off of Cage the Elephant's self titled debut and it's clear that they aren't afraid to use. The song remains true to the style of the band by dealing with the singer's inadequecies and fears, all summed up in a rousing chorus. Monkey Disease, though short, sounds like an absolutely insane song and a definite buy too. Armed with a flare for the allegorical and an "I Could Care Less" attitude, Cage the Elephant releases another fist pumping, but thought provoking hit that highlights the band's self cognizance and leaves you wanting more.


Seeing this band live will change your life! Their energy is second to none.

They've done it Once again

Cage the Elephant is a great group i loved their first cd and this new "single" or basically monkey disease is a great song. u can get back against the wall of the regular cd and it its a definate must buy so if u dont have back against the wall id take a hold of the 1.49 deal instead of buying both songs individually! Cage the Elephant keep doing what u do and dont change!
