Shiny Toy Guns 

With She Wants Revenge and so many other Depeche Mode fetishists having grabbed the spotlight in 2006, it'd be easy to dismiss Shiny Toy Guns as bandwagoneers — that is, until you've rocked the group's hit track "Le Disko" a couple hundred times. Fans of Ladytron and Peaches lose their shit over tracks like this: throbbing electro bass, sultry female vocals and sassy lyrics about "stock rockers" with "dirty eyes." If Debbie Gibson hadn't gone all Broadway, she'd have done well to re-emerge with something this catchy. As it is, Shiny Toy Guns are likely to play somewhere a lot bigger (though not cooler) than the Record Bar next time they come through town.
