I haven’t conducted a scientific survey or anything, but it sure seems like Stereogum readers seem more annoyed at us for omitting Arctic Monkeys’ AM from our albums-of-the-year list than for omitting any other album. Those readers may have a point; AM is a tough, confident, generally badass piece of rock music. The band is about to release the album track “One For The Road” as a single, and they’ve got a good one as a B-side: The simmering, intense, oddly soulful “You’re So Dark.” Hear it below.

AM is out now on Domino, and the “One For The Road” 7″ single is out 12/10.
