LA rockers and good friends of peta2, Drive A dropped a new record last week, and we have three copies up for grabs!

We first met the band about a year ago, when it came to our attention that their bass player, Taylor, rocks a vegan lifestyle. Take a minute to revisit our 5 Questions interview with Taylor to learn about his vegan vision. Then, tell us in the comments below what has inspired you to go vegan for your chance to win one of three copies of Drive A’s new CD, The World In Shambles.

Comments must be received by August 22, 2011 and two winners will be chosen at random and notified on August 29, 2011.

    I was inspired to go vegan because I felt like being vegetarian just wasn’t enough to help animals.

    The way people treat animals and don’t care about them. Animals can feel things too and you need to put yourself in there shoes and see what it’s like.

    Seeing how the animals were treated was major for me. also learning how harmful animal products can be for your body.

    I got inspired to go vegan after I saw how cruel many workers in factory farms were treating the animals there. How the animals don’t really live something anyone would call ‘life’ but just exist in pain to be treated horribly and eaten eventually. And I don’t ever want to be a part of that again!

    I went vegan after 8 years of being a vegetarian and finally accepting that the animal abuse that comes from getting dairy isn’t worth it for my addiction to cheese, which isn’t good for me health-wise anyway.

    seeing what animals go through just so people can eat them. its selfish and awful. i cant eat knowing an animal died for me.

    The way animals are treated so horribly and the fact that people can feel so plainly and unsympathetic about it. Slavery and murder in HUMANS is illegal but no one feels that way for the animals?

    Seeing how unnecessarily cruel animals are treated and the amazing feeling when I can pet a farm animal and know that what I do doesn’t hurt them in any way.

    P.S. Drive A is awesome 🙂

    I saw that dairy contributes to veal, and how cruelly the animals are treated.

    Well I had already been Vegetarian for over a year and day by day, learning more about animal suffering in my research, I started feeling more and more guilty about it. So I decided the animals lives were more important than my stomach, so I ditched the cheese and said hello to Veganism! 🙂

    What inspired me to go vegan? The “Meet Your Meat” video over three years ago.

    Six years ago, I was twelve years old and a “normal” eater. I made a new friend that year, and I learned that she’d been vegetarian for a couple of years. Curious, I did some research of my own. Even at that age, knowing that the animals went through wholly unnecessary ill-treatment ate at me. For days, I was unable to look at the food placed before me – it made me sick. I finally confronted my parents, telling them I wouldn’t be eating meat any longer. They weren’t thrilled with my “phase”, but it’s lasted, and with good reason. Additionally, my health has been much better since the switch – I had a lot of health problems when I was younger, but, barring an unavoidable chronic condition, I have only been sick twice in the past six years. I’m proud to be meat-free – it was one of the smartest choices I ever made.

    I became a vegan when I was working at a farm as a summer job, that was many summers ago. Seeing how the animals were being mistreated really inspired me to become vegan.

    The animals. What kind of torturous short lives they have to lead and how they are treated.

    Plus for the health. 🙂

    I have flirted with the idea of becoming vegetarian for a few years now. It wasn’t until I discovered Peta2’s website at the beginning of 2011 that I really became determined to stick with an animal-free diet. Every now and then, my resolve would break & I’d give in to a cheeseburger, fries & a milkshake at my favorite local restaurant. At the start of this summer as I was chowing down on my Grandma’s world war II recipe of good ole’ spam & macaroni, I started to REALLY think about what the hell I was putting into my body. I had already finished my meal before I finally felt guilty. But since that day, I am simply overjoyed to say that I have not eaten any form of animal 🙂 … nor do I have any plans to! I have absolutely zero cravings for that cheeseburger, I actually discovered that, that restaurant carries vegan veggie burgers! & I no longer hit up Dairy Queen once a month to quench my PMS cravings. Just thinking about all of the crap I used to eat makes me sick to my stomach. I’m so glad that I saw the light & made the change to eat vegan! And I have Peta2 to thank for that 😀

    I went vegan because I saw the way that chickens were treated in the factories, and then with further research, how all animals were treated in factories.

    I decided to go vegan after watching how animals were treated in the process of making food. I also decided to become vegan for health reasons. After learning how pro athletes were healthy vegans it inspired me to become vegan and help my athletic abilities. :3

    I’m a vegetarian (not yet vegan!) Drive A is one of my all time favorite bands and I’ve always admired Taylor for maintaining a vegan lifestyle while out on tour. My biggest inspiration to be a vegetarian has been Rise Against. Their message spoke loud and clear to me and I’ve been meat free since my senior year of high school.

    I became a vegan just recently. My family is very big fans of hunting and I have always just gone along with it. I regret to say I have played my part in many deaths. About a month ago I was helping my dad gut a goose and I looked down at my bloody palms and thought “this is gods creature just like me. How dare I spit on something so precious”. I stood there for a moment frozen. I thought about every time I pulled the trigger on an innocent animal and how often I would eat flesh. What if it was me…? God gave life to everything and only god should be able to take it back. From then on I vowed to refuse any flesh products and help any animal in need from then on.

    Hearing of the torture of egg-laying hens and of hearing if you drink a cows milk there is a calf somewhere that isnt. Also after suffering the loss of an unborn child i thought well animals die for my pleasure,my child wasnt any different to them. We all suffer 🙁 that changed my mind. I dont want others to suffer
