This amazing song with a fun video is the highest placing recent song on the list. The Black Keys have come from indie obscurity to being one of the top bands in the world in the past few years, mostly with the release of Brothers. How big are they? Well, they're playing the Air Canada Centre here in Toronto this coming March. And they're not resting on their laurels, they're moving forward quickly with their newest album El Camino and the first single is a prime example of how to write a hook. "Lonely Boy" comes in at number 5.
