What Became of the Likely Lads [The Libertines]

Band albums


What Became of the Likely Lads is a song by The Libertines, which was released in 25/10/2004 as the final single from their self-titled, second album, The Libertines.

What Became Of The Likely Lads was also a US-only 7 track EP released by the band in 2005, following their split the year before. The record consists of an alternative version of "What Became of the Likely Lads" to the one released as a single from The Libertines album in 2004. It also contains said album version, without the hidden track known as "France" that can be heard after a period of silence following the end of the song on the 2004 album, and an alternative version of "Don't Look Back into the Sun". The remaining tracks are live recordings from the band's gig at London's Brixton Academy in March 2004.
