"Animals" was a demo recorded in 2011 during the Living Things sessions and mentioned during the Inside Living Things documentary.

Samples of the song were released on November 27, 2014 as part of Stagelight's "Linkin Park Bundle II".

The full demo was released on November 25, 2015 as part of the LP Underground 15 CD and a LPU exclusive video about the song was released on December 11, 2015. On the video, Mike said: "Something in the back of my head wants to tell me that somehow it worked itself into "Roads Untraveled". And if that's the case then you can see just how far like an original demo can go to turn into something that it's completely not. It may have been just also a case where we made this song and then I liked that kind of groove of the drums and then I started a new song with that groove. It's a song that never really got finished, didn't find a place on the album but we wanted to share it with you. And kind of unusual to have like that triplet feel rapping thing going on."
