The 11 Best Arctic Monkeys Songs You Haven't Heard


A couple days ago I looked at the arsenal of B-sides from Trent Reznor's 17 year career. Not counting instrumentals...the number tops out at around 13. Today's artist...the Arctic Monkeys had 14 B-sides before their second album even hit the store shelves. My old boss always told me you can judge a band's longevity by their B-sides. And it's somewhat true. Bloc Party had great B-sides and delivered a smashing good new double-album. The Killers had mediocre B-sides and their second album was lukewarm at best. With 14 Bees...you have some really good ones and some rather forgettable ones. But you can't deny the band's hunger to feed our hunger for great music.


Here are the 11 Best Arctic Monkeys Songs You Haven't Heard:

1. 7 (When The Sun Goes Down EP)
2. You Know I'm No Good (Amy Winehouse Cover) - BBC Radio
3. Settle For A Draw (When The Sun Goes Down EP)
4. Cigarette Smoking Fiona (Who The Kcuf are the Arctic Monkeys?)
5. What If You Were Right The First Time? (Brainstorm)
6. Stickin' To The Floor (When The Sun Goes Down EP)
7. Leave Before the Lights Come On (Leave Before the Lights Come On)
8. Despair in the Departure Lounge (Who The Kcuf are the Arctic Monkeys?)
9. Put Your Dukes Up, John (Leave Before the Lights Come On)
10. Who The Kcuf are the Arctic Monkeys? (Who The Kcuf are the Arctic Monkeys?)
11. Bigger Boys and Stolen Sweethearts (I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor)

Leave Before the Lights Come On isn't a B side, it was their third single.
