10 Electroclash Songs That Still Hold Up in 2012

Ladytron - "Playgirl"

Ladytron were always the most real-seeming, talented band associated with electroclash. So, of course, they denied ever being a part of it. They released Softcore Jukebox, an excellent wide-net influences mix in 2003, just to prove their depth. The Witching Hour, put out in 2005 after all of their peers had basically gone bust, was one of the best pop albums of the 00s. (So good. Seriously.) But their first two records, bored with glamour, glassy-eyed catchy (with sinister sung Russian! Skeevy reference to women's tennis!), are the most polished version of electroclash, whether they liked the label or not.
