30. “The Rat” by The Walkmen (2004)

“When I used to go out, I would know everyone that I saw. Now I go out alone if I go out at all”

The best dressed men in rock n roll, Los Walkmen, have spent the decade quietly churning out excellent records that, amazingly, have gotten them to the point where I guess they could be called “veterans”. They seemed like one of the first Brooklyn bands to make their mark and create a critical buzz, and then it seemed like they went away until…they came back with a great album to close the decade, You & Me.

“The Rat” is on the 2004 release, Bows + Arrows, and it kicks much ass. Check out a clip from Letterman here.
