Tune Of The Day: The Libertines – Time For Heroes

My favourite radio station, BBC 6 Music is 10 years old, and has released the 100 best tunes since its birth: listening to the playlist I stumbled across this by the one-time saviours of music to-be, The Libertines.

6 Music are asking people to vote for their favourite of the 100 songs; a few years ago, I reckon Time For Heroes would have had a good chance. Now, I reckon my vote (All My Friends by LCD Soundsystem) is probably a pretty good bet for the top spot.
