Dexy's Midnight Runners as covered by the Strokes sounds like a winning combination to me. So why does every critic continually bill English indie rockers the Cribs as "the biggest cult band in the UK?" Don't pretend you've never heard of them2007 breakout hit "Men's Needs" articulated the gulf between the sexes with ricocheting guitars while "Hey Scenesters!" made future bandmate Johnny Marr pump up the volume on his stereo, convinced that he could "hear destiny." With Moldy Peaches dude Adam Green and the Dead Trees.
