#33 – Franz Ferdinand – “Take Me Out” – (2004)

Remember when Franz Ferdinand blasted onto the scene with this single? It was all over the radio and used in a lot of other things (movies, commercials, video games). Listen to that guitar – it’s impossible not to be able to pick it out above all other things (and it’s the part people instantly recognize). This was a top five hit in the U.K. and in the U.S. on the Modern Rock chart. It wasn’t their last hit either, but they certainly haven’t found this level of mainstream success again.
