GDT MUSIC: "Them Bones" by Alice in Chains



The Predators unveiled their logo, a Sabre-toothed tiger, in Nashville's downtown First American Center on September 25, 1997, 26 years after a fang and foreleg bone of a Sabre-toothed tiger were found in a cave just below the building's address.

In May of 1971, excavation began at the downtown Nashville site of what today is the 28-story First American Center. Construction workers drilled through 20 feet of solid rock before coming to a soft muddy area. Further digging revealed a cave containing the nine-inch fang and a foreleg bone of a Sabre-toothed tiger, extinct for at least 10,000 years.
