When the Sun Goes Down - Arctic Monkeys (3:20)
It followed debut single "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor" to number one on the UK Singles Chart.
The song is about prostitution in the Neepsend district of Sheffield. Originally known as "Scummy", early reports had also suggested its name would be simply "Sun Goes Down", but the full name was confirmed on Arctic Monkeys' website. The line, "and he told Roxanne to put on her red light," is a reference to The Police song "Roxanne".
