"Sweet Sour" is a song by English rock band Band of Skulls, from their 2012 album of the same name. Written by the band and released as a single just prior to the album's release, it reached #29 on the US Alternative Songs chart and #86 on the UK Singles chart.
In a favorable review of the album, Paste Magazine's Ryan Reed described the song "head-crushing" with a "sludgey, Sabbath-esque hammer-on riff."
Chris Schulz of the New Zealand Herald said that the song was passionate and energetic, playing to the band's strengths, and called it "slow-burning but blistering."
In 2013, the song won an Independent Music Award for Best Rock/Hard Rock Song.
A music video for "Sweet Sour" was released in early 2012. Entirely in black and white, it features a boy, who kicks a boombox at the beginning of the video and is later shown dancing, lifting weights, and boxing in a blighted urban environment.
