"The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala" is a song by the English indie rock band Arctic Monkeys, released as the second single from their fourth studio album Suck It and See and was intended to be released as a 7" vinyl on 15 August 2011.
The 7" vinyl features only one B-side titled "Little Illusion Machine (Wirral Riddler)" and is credited to Miles Kane and the Death Ramps. The Death Ramps is a pseudonym previously adopted by the band when they released a limited edition vinyl with "Teddy Picker" b-sides "Nettles" and "The Death Ramps" back in 2007.
The music video for the single premiered on 7 July 2011 on YouTube. It was directed by Focus Creeps and featured footages of the band and model Scarlett Kapella as the "hellcat."
The b-side "Little Illusion Machine (Wirral Riddler)" was made available for streaming the on 8 August.
On 8 August 2011, most of the stock of the single was destroyed in an arson fire at the PIAS Entertainment Group's warehouse during the 2011 London Riots, severely hindering the single's retail release. The limited amount of remaining inventory was released exclusively on the band's website.
