Label: Domino
Key Track: "U.R.A. Fever"

Boy meets girl, boy and girl team up to make some brilliant lo-fi rock. So what if Gossip Girl used one of the tracks off this album ("Sour Cherry") and catapulted them to mall-hero status? From garage ("M.E.X.I.C.O.") to unassuming funk ("U.R.A. Fever"), the shit still bumps.

The Kills' lead singer went on to join Jack White's Dead Weather.
