41 Perhaps Vampires Is a Bit Strong But... Perhaps Vampires Is a Bit Strong But...

I absolutely love the guitar solo at the end.
In an interview
Alex Turner was asked what the meaning
Of this song was. He answered that it
Actually was written regarding the people
Of Sheffield (their home town) and their
Lack of support. When he was asked
Whether they were glad to be called
Vampires his rebuttal was that they wasn't
Very happy with the title but he stood by
The lyrics.

How is this not higher up. Great song!

Would almost certainly be considered one of their best songs if it had been on one of their albums. - Chippieolamus

This and Leave Before the Lights Come On should have made it onto their debut album.

44 All My Own Stunts All My Own Stunts

Awesome song, Josh Homme is a great
Addition. I like the reference to their song
From 'Whatever People Say I Am That's
What I'm Not'. I guess the meaning is about
A lad who watches badass cowboy films
And has an urge to do something badass
Himself.

45 That's Where You're Wrong That's Where You're Wrong

This, like most of their other album closers, is one of their best songs. The lyrics are fantastic and the guitar sounds great. The whole album is underrated, but I don't know how this song has ended up so far down.

Doesn't get the recognition it deserves, much like the whole of Suck it and See. Definitely should be top 10, in my personal top 5 Arctic Monkeys songs - Chippieolamus

One of the best Arctic Monkey songs. Sad to see it all the way down here.

A favourite can't believe it's not here. had to check the list 5 times

46 Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secured Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secured

Amazing beat, and such good lyrics. Alex's lyric writing skills is perfectly showcased in this song, and the music itself is so good! I have this song on repeat.

47 Love Is a Laserquest Love Is a Laserquest

Love this song! It deserves to be in top ten without a doubt. it's my favourite arctic monkeys song! Wonderful blend of instruments and vocals.. Great lyrics..

I think this song deserves to be at least in the top 10! Is an amazing song, not very known, though. But that doesn't stop it from being one of their best songs.

Such a moving song! Its lyrics are so emotional. It makes it impossible not to fall in love with Alex Turner and his genius.

Suck it and see sucks but this is probably at top 5

49 My Propeller My Propeller

This should be way higher, top 20. I can't explain how intriguing and just plain sexy this song is.

If this song is seriously not in the top 20 at least, then you're not real fans

This song is the best for me. This energy, kinda sexual in a way... Turns me crazy every time.
Still, the other ones are my favorites too. For sure.

This is their best song ever what

50 This House Is a Circus This House Is a Circus

THE best song by the Arctic Monkeys. I'm not one of those who is just into the poppy stuff. I think that humbug and fwn are by far the best albums, but this song is just amazing. I just love the high vocal bit. "now that we're here, we may as well go too far! "

This should be in top5 no matter what. Absolutely fantastic song which makes you go wild. Pure genius. My favorite arctic monkeys song.

Alex and matt are sharp in this one. It's a crowd favourite. The tune is fantastic

51 The Jeweller's Hands The Jeweller's Hands

Are you kidding me? This is such a special song. Especially the guitar part in the end is legendary.

Well, since all of the Arctic Monkeys songs are magnificent, this has a unique melody, and catchy background details.
I decided so hardly to choose one between R you Mine, Crying Lightning and If You Were There Beware.

Took me a while to find it - I was expecting it to be in the top 10

52 Piledriver Waltz Piledriver Waltz

It's a travesty that this has placed under some boring derivative stuff. I love this song so much, it's lyrics are very human in a way that flows so perfectly and sounds so good with the instruments. I do prefer the Alex Turner version though.

Should be in top ten at least! This song is amazing! I especially love the end!

This song has such beautiful imagery and conveys emotion so well

54 Who the F*** Are Arctic Monkeys? Who the F*** Are Arctic Monkeys?

If you are a true Arctic Monkeys fan, you will know this track, and realize that it acts to a brother to Leave Before The Lights Come On, in terms of pure badassness and epicness. And then there is that riff that comes in 3 minutes into the song... It needs to be in their top ten along with Cornerstone

55 The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala

This song, along with the entirety of Suck It And See, are criminally underrated. An absolute jewel of a song, with such a wistful feel to it. Simply fantastic music. It's a shame to see it go unappreciated.

Seriously underrated. This song is a rare Jewel. Just look at those lyrics!

WHAT?! This song is so amazing! It's one of their softer songs, but it's so lovely. Alex sounds so sincere and full of longing. Totally underrated- listen to it people!
