Released: May 2007

"Nah-nah-nah-naah-nah-nah-na-na-na, Nah-nah-nah-naah-nah-nah-na-na-na" – the opening riff of the Wakefield brothers' most anthemic moment has become an indie dancefloor catchphrase in itself. Alex Kapranos' under-appreciated production, using silence brilliantly between riffs for full whack, helps elevate this above similarly scraggy efforts from the band's peers into a jean-ripping triumph of what you can do with just three blokes, a couple of guitars and some wires. It also was a huge factor in pushing the band on from cult heroes to one of the UK's best-loved bands.
