26: Kings Of Leon - Sex On Fire

Proving the precise point I was making at the start of the last post, here comes a track by a band who have been disappointing on the two occasions I've seen them play live. Kings of Leon are definitely one of those bands who sound much better on record.

I'm going to say very little about this one, as it's probably the most well-known song of the past 18 months (it's this or Lady Gaga). But I know it is a fairly divisive song, probably as a result of over-exposure.

However, the inescapable fact remains that it contains one of the all-time crowd-pleasing choruses, anthemic like a terrace football chant. This song will have longevity unlike most others of the era.
