"10.000 Nights of Thunder" is the second single by Alphabeat.
It was released in the UK as "10,000 Nights" in anticipation of "This Is Alphabeat", the international version of their debut album.
The band played a live semi-acoustic version of the track in Jo Whiley's Live Lounge on BBC Radio 1, together with a cover version of Sam Sparro's Black and Gold.
An instrumental version of the track was used as background music by the BBC during their daily Beijing 2008 Olympics highlights show.
"10.000 Nights of Thunder" peaked in Denmark at 1, where it stayed for one week. In the UK the song entered at #23 on downloads alone, and climbed to #16 once the physical single had been released. On 27 July 2008 the song moved up four places from #40 to #36, before dropping out of the top 40.
