Area 52

  • This punky tale of alien abduction is named after the military base in the Nevada desert rumoured to host alien life. The song came from Yeah Yeah Yeah's Nick Zinner. Drummer Brian Chase described the guitarist to The Sun as "the hardcore alien guy" in the band who has visited Area 52 a few times.
