Released: February 2004
Sometimes a band unleash a song so staggeringly, elementally powerful, the rest of their career can only be a let-down. Like The Strokes gone evil, this clattering cut from the New York band's second album showcased the apoplectic vocals of Hamilton Leithauser, propelled by a relentless backbeat that owed much to krautrock. A maelstrom of finger-pointing rage ("You've got a nerve…"), this astonishing track represented the rancorous dark side of the New York indie-rock explosion.
