50 Years, 50 Albums 2009: Cage the Elephant

This is the second time a debut album has been voted into the WPLR Hall of Fame; the first was Boston and now we welcome Cage the Elephant’s self-titled debut album. Formed back in 2006 in Bowling Green, Kentucky by brothers Matt and Brad Shultz combining classic rock along with blues, punk rock and alternative rock. Cage the Elephant’s debut album was first released in 2008 in the U.K. where the band relocated to, and then it was released in the U.S. March of 2009 giving these guys a huge following in both the U.S. and England. So far, the band has five albums out and is still active today.
