The song starts off with a driving drumbeat, and a chorus of "Read all the pamphlets ... and watch the tapes." It's a sound you'd probably expect to hear off a Ramones' album. However, the LCD Soundsystem diddy quickly turns to more of a disco sound, without truly abandoning the punks undertone ... quite a fusion. It's a song you'd probably hear at a night-club, but wouldn't be out of place at a bar.
Catchy hooks, and choruses - this song probably isn't radio clean enough, but is catchy nevertheless. The chorus is very catchy, looks like it was influenced by Warren Zevon's Warewolves in London, and the baseline is strong and powerful ... lots of synthesizers, but they work well.
The song ends much like it begins, with everything fading but the "Read all the pamphlets, and watch the tapes" over the same driving drum beat.
Couldn't find the video, but here's the song in case you're interested.
