“Don’t believe the hype” Alex Turner warns at the start of the live performance promo that accompanies the single. How could anyone in the U.K. not be swept up in the hype? Turner’s spitfire vocal of pick up artists in Sheffield clubs, the frenetic pace, and the back to basics garage rock style gave it the impetus to become the clarion call for a final number one pop chart hurrah before Pop Idol, X Factor, random DJ’s, dancing bimbo’s and other no marks took over popular music.
