Don't Say We Didn't Warn You by Does It Offend You, Yeah? (2011)

Kind of Like: Klaxons, Delphic, Hadouken!, Daft Punk, Bloc Party
Genres: Electronica, Punk (Dance-punk)

Oh man, you may remember these guys from action movie trailers, and if you actually got their album you found that they deserved more credit than just being featured on trailers for The Fast and Furious and the A Team.  Another part of this band I like is their sense of humor.  Listen to how they thought of their band name:

""When me and James Rushent first started writing music together we decided to put it up on MySpace. We needed a name to put as our profile name so just put what was the first thing that was said on TV, we switched it on and Ricky Gervais said "My Drinking - Does it offend you, yeah?" so we just went with that. No thought went into it whatsoever"
-Synth Player

The only song I've heard so far is "The Monkeys Are Coming", which again exemplifies their catchiness and comicality.  The song features samples of the black homeless guy yelling at skateboarders.  Things like, "THE FUNKY MONKEYS IS COMIN'!!" and "There's a new rock coming to town, coming to eat all y'all, mother fuckers!" and "EAT OUR SHIT AND SUCK OUR DICKS!".  If you have no idea what I'm talking about please watch the following video, and then watch the video following that video of "The Monkeys Are Coming" by Does It Offend You, Yeah?, which actually starts off with some nice awkward british humor.

It's gonna be a big nut bust.
