Why?: A jam that spoke to ravers in more ways than one

Faithless' "Insomnia" topped the charts in America, Finland, Canada, Switzerland, and Norway, and charted high in Faithless' native UK. And while you could argue that, sure, ravers are insomniacs because they go raving all-night, the undercurrent does lend to the lifestyle, which as we all known can be drenched in drug use, which can keep club-goers awake. The lyrics on this paint a pretty dark picture, but we have a feeling some of you out there understood the feeling early on... of course that's all before that memorable melody creeps in. Oh yeah, you know this tune now, huh? Club–and minds–would explode when this nine-minute track properly dropped.
