3. Pink Floyd — "Madmoiselle Nobs"
The track is named after the dog who provided howling vocals in their 1972 film Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii. Madmoiselle Nobs stood in for the dog "Seamus" who originally provided howling accompaniment on the album version of the tune.
4. Aerosmith — "Walking the Dog"
Aerosmith covered this song by Rufus Thomas for their first very album in 1973.
5. George Clinton — "Atomic Dog"
This 1982 video is amazing. There is some serious doggy dancing animation going on. Snoop Dogg, Biz Markie, and 2Pac have all sampled the song's hook.
