1. New Dawn Fades
2. She's Lost Control
3. Disorder
4. Interzone
5. Other - They Walked in Line (the original early version from Warsaw, not that shitty listless later version)

Just missed the cut, in order:
Atmosphere
Twenty Four Hours
Transmission
Atrocity Exhibition

New Dawn Fades is probably in my top ten songs ever by anyone. Fucking incredible track, and She's Lost Control and Disorder are not far behind. I love the energy of Interzone and They Walked in Line, and they're both nostalgic favourites for me, giving them that little boost to get ahead of Atmosphere and Twenty Four Hours, two other tracks I absolutely adore.

No one appreciates Candidate? The bleakest song I've ever heard, but brilliant!

Everything on Unknown Pleasures except for the last couple of tracks are brilliant, so yeah, I love Candidate. It's plodding in the best way imaginable.

Really glad that Disorder has rallied back. That's their best track.

Awesome song on an awesome album. It's just that, for me, Disorder, New Dawn Fades, She's Lost Control, and Interzone are superior. The only track on Unknown Pleasures that I find at all expendable is I Remember Nothing.

The Killers probably helped make it less popular.

Living up to their band name quite well.

They are the Killers of Joy.

Good song title.

Reminds me of "Let's Make Love and Listen to Death From Above" by CSS.

Which reminds me...I like a number of songs by both CSS and Death From Above 1979 even though I haven't listened to either band in probably three or four years.

I was thinking of CSS a few days ago. Weird how a lot of bands can be huge for a moment and then nearly disappear. Indie rock is a really fickle scene, kids don't seem to care much about older popular indie bands. I saw Ladytron (another band who's also lost a great deal of their popularity) on tour for the Witching Hour nearly 10 years ago. CSS opened. I was sitting in the bar area of the venue with my friend and this tiny girl is sitting next to us wearing fluorescent green spandex pants and a hot pink tank top, eating or having a drink. Both of us are like, "WTF is this girl wearing?!" 20 minutes later we realize she's the singer for CSS.

It's their fault I never want to listen to it anymore.

Cause it's not about music. It's about posing. It's as fake as what it's rebelling against.

Indie rock being fake? Oh, I'm very much aware how full of shit the indie rock scene is.

I think what Schoopaloop is trying to say is that Hipsters are douchebags.... I am ok with that
