Released: September 2008
It's become a bit of a drive-time, FM-rock cliché – which is strange, because 'Sex On Fire' is really quite a filthy song, describing a shag so mind-bendingly amazing, it's almost a bit scary ("Knuckles are pale, feels like you're dying…"). Caleb Followill didn't think much of it at first, he didn't want to include it on 'Only By The Night', but he was convinced otherwise. Just as well – it became KOL's biggest hit by miles, rubber-banding them into the mainstream, to the point where, distressingly, even The X Factor's Jamie Afro covered it.
