This was the second single for Franz Ferdinand, following "Darts of Pleasure
," which was little-heard outside of Europe. For their name, the band took inspiration for their name from a racehorse called "The Archduke Ferdinand." After seeing the horse race on TV they began to discuss Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, whose assassination triggered World War I. They decided it would be a good band name because of its sound and the implications of the Archduke's death.
