Arctics Debut Crowned As Top Student Anthem
THE ARCTIC MONKEYS' debut single I BET YOU LOOK GOOD ON THE DANCE FLOOR has topped a poll as the favourite student anthem of all time. The punk-inspired tune beat out competition from THE KILLERS' MR BRIGHTSIDE and KAISER CHIEFS' rousing hit I PREDICT A RIOT, which took second and third place respectively. The survey, conducted by British magazine the NME's Student Guide, consulted over 200 student DJs. FRANZ FERDINAND's TAKE ME OUT came fourth, while older hits including THE SMITHS' THIS CHARMING MAN and JOY DIVISION's LOVE WILL TEAR US APART made it into the top ten. NME student editor DAN SILVER says, "Its no surprise that the Arctic Monkeys have taken the top spot - I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor is a worthy winner always guaranteed to pack any Student Union bar with revellers. "It's great to see some old classics can still work their magic too."
