21 The View from the Afternoon

This song is simply amazing. Period.

Fantastic song with epic guitar this song really shows what artic monkeys are really made off!

This is first song of the first album its awesome. Alex Turner said "This is one of
The last songs written for the
Album. There's nothing clever,
It's just about anticipating the
Evening, finding comfort in
Familiarity and the fact that you
Know you're bound to send a
Daft message or something
Before the sun comes up. I think
I've stopped doing that now.

22 Old Yellow Bricks

This is one really good song. I like how it keeps it tune though-out the song from star to end. One of my best and favourite songs.

This song is very underrated, should be at least in the top ten in my opinion. Definitely one of the best songs from the 2nd album! - BreakingBen

15? Are you crazy guys? It was the first AM song I've heard and it had me hooked on em ever since!
Should at least be in the top 10

Best song by them in my opinion, that beat though...mint.

Such a great chorus, and that moment when Josh Homme starts singing...

Very catchy

24 If You Were There, Beware

This song deserves to be in the top ten list..

Its in Favourite Worst Nightmare but, sounds so Humbug.
Very underrated, but very COOL at the same time.

One of my favourites

25 Pretty Visitors

This is the best of Humbug and its 32nd? This is blasphemy

98? You people probably never heard Pretty Visitors.

This is a really good song and deserves to be in the top 10

Are you KIDDING ME

26 Suck It and See

I think it's an absolutely beautiful love song and a true representation of the maturity brought into their sound with the release of this album. They still have the quirky yet great metaphors "you're rarer than a can of dandelion and burdock, and those other girls are just lost mix lemonade" accompanied by a good chord progression and the rhythmic expert that is mathew J helders. My favourite by far.

One of the most incredible Arctic Monkeys songs. It's got such a dreamy, wistful feel to it that makes it so beautiful and moving to listen to. Definitely top ten.

The kind of song that would remind you of your beloved. Such sweet song with good arrangement and metaphorical lyrics. I think this is my 2nd favourite song from Arctic Monkeys.

Brilliant lyrics

29 Snap Out of It

Awesome sound, great use of different vocal styles, and classic instruments, even if it is a little simple for some people

#28?! Come on guys, this is one of their best songs, I can't believe it isn't in top 5..

Both lyrics and music are amazing in this one. I love it! So underrated. One of the best from AM.

Really? 28th Stupid List

30 Library Pictures

This is one of their catchiest and greatest songs. I don't know why this isn't in the top ten.

31 No. 1 Party Anthem

It's not like I'm falling in love I just want you to do me no good and you look like you could. The best song!

Never get bored listening this song. This song bring me to the other dimension haha so good

My favourite song! It's nearly hypnotic and so different to the usual loud and heavy guitar chords associated with the Arctic Monkeys!

Should be so much higher

32 No Buses

SO UNDERRATED. this is a great song a must listen for fans of the Arctic Monkeys. Has a kind of similar feel to the beginning of Mardy Bum

Such a great song. I hate how half of the high spots on this list are all AM songs. It's songs like this that truly draw you into Arctic Monkeys.

The lyrics are so true! Best song ever

Top 10 at least - absolutely brilliant lyricism and melody on display from turner

33 Bigger Boys and Stolen Sweethearts

Just an insane song, should definitely have been released as a single

34 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.

Simply awesome

35 Riot Van

I love how he acts clueless about the drinking age.

This song is so good, reminds me of me on the streets

For sure the best song

Perfect for those who can only sleep in a coty that never wakes

36 Only Ones Who Know

I fell in love with this right off the bat. It's truly an astounding creation by the boys. I wish I could somehow go back in time to the moment when I first heard this song, because it's honestly magical hearing it for the first time. - RobynTM

Beautiful melody, and vocals. It's A good cool down song on an album full of excitement. However, it's still great as a stand alone.

This is a wonderful song. Very complete it was to be one of the Top Tens.

I love this song, wonderful n nice song

37 I Wanna Be Yours

How is this so low? 42?! Are you serious? Oh my god, listen to this song. It's lyrics are beautiful.. damn.

This song is based off of a poem like the bands name. Both by the same poet.

When a band turns a poem into a song you can feel the intensity in the air!

This sould be higher... My favorite song from Artic Monkeys by far

38 You Probably Couldn't See for the Lights but You Were Looking Straight at Me

Love this song so much! The tune is absolutely brilliant, and the lyrics are very funny to listen to. The first verse is my favourite part of the song 'One look sends it coursing through the veins, oh how the feeling races
Back up to their brains to form expressions on their stupid faces
They don't want to say hello, but I can't want to say hello
My heartbeat's at its peak, when you're coming up to speak' Absolute tune to listen to.

Never again... never again will there be another one quite as desirable as you

39 Secret Door

This is a seriously underrated song, apparently based on alex's relationship with Alexa. Its brilliantly formatted and the end choruses are delivered with such brilliance I don't understand why people can rate songs such as"dangerous animals" and "my propeller" over this. This song, like most songs in "Humbug" certainly grows on you and is sometimes dismissed because people are not prepared to give it more time or another listen.

Their most underrated song! Such a deep experience behind it

I couldn't agree more with that big para

Arguably THE MOST underrated arctic monkeys song and definitely one of their best. Always will be one of my favourites!

40 Black Treacle

This should be up in the top ten! The lyrics are pure genius and the guitar riff in the chorus kills me every time. It's a gorgeous song

Absolutely INCREDIBLE. So many feelings from this song, and the lyrics are impeccably clever. Should indubitably be top five!

This is simply their best song! I'm shocked since it is 25th!

I love this song. It is one of my favourites.
