Franz Ferdinand released their self-titled debut album on February 9th, 2004.
The arty/indie-rock album placed Franz Ferdinand front and centre and it was all down to one song - 'Take Me Out.' Although the single never reached number one (except for on the UK Indie chart), it secured the band a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Performance.
Their follow-up album 'You Could Have It So Much Better' saw them finally nab a UK number one spot in 2005; the Glaswegian band were here to stay.
The band have gone through a number of changes since their first album was released. In 2015, they created a supergroup with American band Sparks and released the joint venture, 'FFS', that year. In 2016, band member Nick McCarthy left to pursue other musical projects; and he was replaced by two new members, Dino Bardot and Julian Corrie, to turn Franz Ferdinand into a quintet for the first time.
'Franz Ferdinand' turns 15 years old today - check your lyrical knowledge on the album below.
