Whoot, composing a list of songs that are aboutt wolves, have a decent reference to wolves, or an implied metaphor regarding wolves. Songs that make reference to folklore, euphemisms, or sayings involving wolves may be listed as well. Please add to the list! Provide the name of the song and the singer/band.

Lil' Red Riding Hood (Originally by Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs)
Wolf (Iced Earth)
She Wolf (Megadeath)
Of Wolf and Man (Originally by Metallica)
Wolfshade (Moonspell)
House of Wolves (My Chemical Romance)
Wanderlust (Nightwish)

The Cage (Arctica Sonata)
Wolf in Sheep's Clothing (The Providence)

well if you can`t use limewire, than you can go to amazon.com or Ebay and buy the CD. but I hate paying for shipping. one song I found was called "Wolf in Winter", though it has no lyrics, the "wolf chillo" is heavly played througout the song.

You can find them online, there are two separate soundtracks though. If you're interested in buying them, look on eBay, you can find them for about 5 dollars (American) plus shipping.

Or download them illegally... but that's your own business just be sure to be smart about it.

Not listing bands with Wolf in their name, I'm listing songs that have something to do with wolves.

The Wolf is Loose-Mastadon
The song never mentions the word "wolf" but instead describes an unearthly wolf and its effects on the world, through the voice of insane, screaming, hardcore heavy metal!

Wolfpack - Syd Barrett

It's a bit strange, I'll tell you. Barrett wasn't mentally well when it was recorded, I believe.

Well do you like classical music then? If that's the case, then there's the score to Peter and the Wolf. The wolf is the villain, of course, but it's a very entertaining piece and easier for people who are new to classical music to follow, since each character is represented by a different instrument.

The wolf just happens to be 3 french horns, which is my instrument. :)
