Best Modest Mouse Songs

Later this week Modest Mouse releases their newest album after years of wait. Modest Mouse is one of the classic indie bands, starting in the early 90s releasing innovative yet challenging albums and eventually getting commercial success with the single “Float On”. The fact that Modest Mouse has been both indie darlings and commercial rock stars has divided the fan base between two camps. We will see what the new album brings. In the meantime, here are my top 10 Modest Mouse songs. I tend to value the older Modest Mouse albums a little more, so sorry, no “Float On” in this list.

“Gravity Rides Everything” – Moon & Antarctica

“Night On the Sun” – Everywhere and His Nasty Parlor Tricks

“Dark Center of the Universe”- Moon & Antarctica

“Teeth Like God’s Sunshine”- The Lonesome Crowded West

“Dramamine” – This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About

“Talking Shit About A Pretty Sunset” – This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About

“Ocean Breathes Salty” – Good News For People Who Love Bad News

“Cowboy Dan” – The Lonesome Crowded West

“Breakthrough”- This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About

“I Came As A Rat”- Moon & Antarctica
