Best Song Dissing New York's Club Scene (2008)

IT'S OVER

On the self-released single IT'S OVER, the Hungry Wives take the piss out of New York's most hallowed ground: the club scene. Perhaps some of the members' Seattle roots enable them to have a sense of perspective on the overblown superclubs—which they insult with glee. "Twilo was sold on eBay, the Palladium is a dorm," snarks singer Andy Salzer, declaring the whole shebang "Ovah!" with two snaps. One wonders, however, if they'll be composing an epitaph for the "electroclash" movement—which they are part of—too.
