This is the best The Walkmen song. I’ve tried to like their other stuff, but really this is the only one that does anything for me. It’s a great song when you’re kind of pissed off or for whenever.
The Walkmen also have a new album out called Lisbon, it’s nothing like ‘The Rat’, but it has a nice 60’s vibe going for it. Still, ‘The Rat’ is better. Really, it’s one of my favourite songs. Ever.
