‘Win It’ Wednesday: Vegan Guitar Strap

Written by PETA | September 23, 2009

Thanks for all of your wonderful comments on this Win It Wednesday. The winner of the guitar strap is Kristen. Congratulations!

You’ve got the hair. You’ve got the eyeliner. You’ve got the guitar. But wait, what’s the one thing every real rock star needs? A cruelty-free guitar strap, of course.

For this week’s “Win It” Wednesday, we’ve got you covered. We’re giving away one quality guitar strap from the stellar all-vegan company Couch Guitar Straps.


Vegan Guitar Strap


Leather is a co-product—not a byproduct—of the meat and dairy industries. When you buy leather, you contribute directly to the lifelong misery of cows and other animals, and you put money into the pockets of the people who exploit them.

How do you save a cow and gain a vegan guitar strap? Leave a comment about why cows are as cool as your favorite vegan musician. Whoever posts the most rockin’ comment gets to choose a strap from Couch Guitar Straps (priced up to $38, including shipping and handling).

The contest ends on October 7, 2009, and we’ll choose one comment as the winner on October 9, 2009. Be sure to read our privacy policy and terms and conditions, as you’re agreeing to both by commenting.

Good luck!

    If you’re looking for a vegan guitar, check out He wanders the woods collecting shed deer antlers for the nut and saddle of the guitar and repurposes old furniture and bridges for his wood. He also uses vegan glue upon request. You can’t get more earth-friendly than that!

    DUDE!!! cows are sooo cool well not just because they do “grass” but bc they know how to rock out. they make my day when i see and smell on the side of the highway..

  • Aaron says:

    Cows ROCK because they totally understand outdoor music festivals. The have allot of “grass” go skinny dipping and just chill. Not to mention their threads are so damn stylish and they’re against ‘the man’ aswell.

  • Lindsey Kuser says:

  • Annette D says:

    Paul McCartney is my favorite! My sons and I went to his concert in September and he is still the coolest musician ever! Both of my sons are guitar players and would love this guitar strap.

  • Paula Harmon says:

    Moo was my first word I love cows. I’ve been trying to teach my kids about being vegan not just with food. They play guitar and we have trouble getting a good guitar strap without it being leather. I’ve never heard of vegan guitar straps. I can’t wait to show them.

  • Nathaniel says:

    Weird Al is my favourite vegan musician! He went vegan in 1992 after a fan gave him the book “Diet For A New America” and he hasn’t looked back since! Al was the valedictory of his class which clearly shows from his dietary choices. He may still sing about “My Bologna” but he doesn’t mean it anymore!

  • Vicki says:

    Cows are cool because their tongues are as long as Gene Simmons’!

  • B. Spoon says:

    I can rock it with that cool leather free guitar strap. I’m sure Sir Paul McCartney has one similar?

  • Justine Kay says:

    The other day I went out to lunch with my favorite vegan musician also known as “Holy Cow.” As we entered the chic barninspired restaurant “Holy Cow” pushed me aside and said “Moove on over buddy I’m so hungry I could eat a block of tofu.” Little did I know the world famous vegan musician “Holy Tofu” was waiting for a table right behind us.

  • Rochelle says:

    Cows are udderly cool because they moo have big wet tongues and soft brown eyes that make you want to kiss them.

  • jodi says:

    cows are the Lemme of the animal kingdom… you don’t get any cooler than that.

  • Kristen says:

    You can’t spell “rock is awesome” without cows! Cows are pretty much the same as rockstars anyway. They sleep standing up live to 25 and are huge in Japan!

  • Michael M. says:

    cows are cool cuz their babies can walk as soon as they fall out of their mommies! how cool is that??!

  • Tom says:

    Dude Atom Heart Mother check it out. Long before the pig in the smokestacks which was also pretty cool even before the iconic prism thingy. Cows are rock ‘n’ roll history man.

  • kelly keith says:

    Have you ever seen Morrisey sweating and getting chapped on stage in a pair of leather pants? I think not! Just like cows Morrisey knows the only skin to rock is your own.

  • Geoff says:

    Cows are cool because they help make chocolate milk chocolate chip cookies Hershey’s chocolate bars and a whole host of other chocolate goodness. Cows are cool to hang out with too. They don’t judge you they listen when you talk and they always give you a drink for free when you’re really really thirsty.

  • neil pardoe says:

    “cool for cats” as Squeeze sang some while ago but they can be vicious buggers where as cows rarely get angry not even when so called civilized humans kill themhave you noticed humans don’t eat the things that fight back? “Cool for cows” now there’s a song.

  • Anna Casswell says:

    I’ve seen those cool guys from Goldfinger gob on the ceiling then catch it in their mouths as it drops off. Cows are cooler because they can just stick their tongue up their nose to get directly to the snot. Also I aint seen no cow wearing human skin!

  • Morgane says:

    Cows are cool! They are the ultimate ecological device! Chewing the same grass over and over fertilizing the ground around them use there tails to repulse fly instead of pesticide whatching the trains all day long to be certain they don’t spil oil and other bad stuff. Long live the cow!

  • Mikie P says:

    Cows rock because… I’ve never see one where a Mikie P Skin Jacket I’ve never seen one with a Real Mike P skin guitar strap I saw one with an imitation Mikie P strap once And not once has a cow ever tipped me in my sleep How cool are they to us? Rock on. Be cool to utters and utters will be cool onto you. Mikie P.

  • John says:

    Cows are cool because they’re so punk. Establishment be tellin us to not eat the grass not to defecate in public places not to sell our bodily fluids at the market. Cows be like hellz no we do what we want! So punk.

  • Akiko says:

    I love the design I want this.

  • Mike C says:

    Cows are cool because they are the best black and white animals. Yeah I said it… suck on that zebras!

  • Mike Anderson says:

    Cows are cool because they make great Ice Cream.

  • ron grande says:

  • Alex Trinidad says:

    i always dissaproved about leather i was more of a cotton person myself it’s comfy Besides All we really need is more cowbell not cow GO COTTON! D

  • Vicky Carlson says:

    Cows are cool and my 18 year old guitar player would agree since he has become an activist for cruelty free and ecoforward causes. He would like to have the strap. I’m so proud of him. Cows need an advocate like Cows Are Cool in this cruel world!

  • Drew says:

    Cows are cool their natural curiosity makes them photogenic.

  • sandy says:

    cows are cool because they don’t eat meat..unless you count biting the butts of cowtippers if they get them.

  • Kristen says:

    My favourite vegetarian musician is probably Avril Lavigne. Here’s why cows are as cool as Avril Hey hey! You you! I wanna be leather free! No way! No way will leather soon be bought by me! Hey hey! You you are liking cows not dairy!

  • Nicole says:

    Cows rock. Sometimes they roll in mud. That just makes them even cuter. By far my fave vegan rock star is Phil Collen guitarist from Def Leppard. He’s in his 50s and SMOKIN’ hot and can tell from one glance at him that he’s vegan. He should be the rock star poster boy for this clean and cruelty free lifestyle. I would LOVE this guitar strap to put on my Gibson and show my solidarity for cows and rock and roll.

  • Andrew says:

    Cows are cool because you get free hockey pucks in the winter!

  • Olivia says:

    I really love the Hindu belief on why cows are so special. They are “the mother”. And if you think about it its very true. Cows are very intellingent and caring animals who have such an amazing bond it their children its truly inspiring and a great reason to become vegan. My favorite vegetarian rockstar is George Harrison RIP my favorite VEGAN rockstar would have to be Sinead O’Connor

  • ana flores says:

    cows are cool as my fav rockstar because they do not have to harm anyone or anything to make a huge statement..such as just by feeding ppl with dairy and they ask for nothing more than a good life but instead ppl go beyond and kill them for meat

  • Michelle says:

    Cows are cool because they’re peaceful and gentle.


    HELLOOO!!! I’m Bessie the cow! MOOOOOO!!! Please don’t kill me I love life like the next cow. I enjoy chewing a good chud every once in a while and hanging out with the girls by the water cooler.. I don’t deserve to die!! Please save me and my girlfriends! Book club will not be the same if we lose members!!

  • rohit sharma says:

    cows are beautiful as they are too much acomodatingintelligent and selfless creature . in a country like india they are even worshipped like a a vegan musician is liked the same way the cows are liked and should be admired.

  • Dikran Seferian says:

    Cows are cool because they aren’t racist they’re both black and white in color!!

  • Crystal Adams says:

    I am a guitar player a vegetarian of 11 years and I think Cows are as cool as my favorite vegan musician Geezer Butler Black Sabbath because with as much respect as he has for animals I’m sure if cows could talk they would give a big ” MOO YEAH !! ” to him for being one of the greatest musicians ever and not contributing to animal suffering
