    Here's an example- the track is called "Cuttlefish".

    Your favorite example(s)?

    The Lovecraft-inspired scifi rock band Darkest Of The Hillside Thickets has a track on their new album called "A Marine Biologist". Fantastic song, some of the lines read:

    "Architeuthis, lean and fast.
    Show us your sublime buccal mass.

    He’s got a bathyscaphe
    He’s a marine biologist
    Slid with the squid underneath the waves!"

    This is alongside many other Lovecraftian lyrical attacks. So awesome.

    I know one song where the chorus goes:
    Octopus, Some kind of octopus
    Tearing my shell apart
    Letting the sea get in
    you make my insides outside.

    I will have to get a youtube link later, but it is a very good song.

    I started a thread on AskMetafilter that has garnered some suggestions. Is there a forum for cephalopod-inspired music on TONMO? Didn't see anything under Culture.

    This struck my curiosity and I took a gander on Rhapsody, here is some album art that I found.

    He also has one called 'I Crush Everything' about giant squid, which I quite like.
