Franz Ferdinand by Franz Ferdinand

You can tell they're an art school band by the literary references, the abstraction and the exuberantly pointless German sing-a-long at the end of Darts of Pleasure (though curiously Auf Acshe is entirely in English). Yep, they're smart guys, but they've got the idiot souls of AC/DC and the riffs to match.
Best Tracks: The Dark of the Matinee, Jacqueline, Take Me Out
