Arctic Monkeys - When The Sun Goes Down

03:29

“What a scummy man / Just give him half a chance / I bet he’ll rob you if he can.”

The band’s second single and their follow-up to I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor, was originally titled Scummy. 

It charts the seedier side of hometown life, inspired by the prostitutes that worked near the band’s studio in the Neepsend District of Sheffield. 

Starting slowly, the track cranks into the guitar-laden, beat driven sound that became synonymous with Arctic Monkey’s first two albums.
