|Five Minutes With Arctic Monkeys|
|Released||30 May 2005|
|Arctic Monkeys chronology|
Released on 30 May 2005, it featured a re-recording of fan favourite "Fake Tales of San Francisco" and new song and B-side "From the Ritz to the Rubble". It was a limited release by Bang Bang Recordings – a label created by the band for the sole purpose of releasing the single. The name, Bang Bang, was mooted as a replacement band name, on the basis that the name Arctic Monkeys sounded "silly".
Only 1500 CDs and 1500 vinyl copies were made available, meaning the single is now rare and increasingly sought after by fans of the band. Both tracks were re-recorded and included on the band's debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not (2006).
