So basically four dudes out of Versailles, France named themselves Phoenix and took over the world. They’ve technically been around for a while but they didn’t really hit the big bad mainstream until their ’09 album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, with hits such as Lisztomania (the one above) and 1901 – which was used in a car ad, yay commercialism! – popped onto the scene but the three albums before that were quite fabbo as well. Check out Too Young, Run Run Run, and Long Distance Call.
