The band's greatest success to date came with the release of their fourth album, 2008’s “Only by the Night,” along with the singles "Sex on Fire" and "Use Somebody." “Only by the Night” peaked at #1 on the Australian, Irish, New Zealand and U.K. Albums charts, also peaking at #5 on the Billboard 200. It was certified 8x platinum in Australia, 4x platinum in New Zealand, 6x platinum in the U.K., and platinum in the U.S. "Sex on Fire" peaked at #1 on the Alternative Songs chart, as well as the Australian, Finnish, Irish and U.K. singles charts. The second single, "Use Somebody," entered the Top 10 on the Billboard 100, and peaked at #1 on the Alternative Songs chart.

"Sex on Fire" was nominated for Best Rock Song, and won the award for Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group at the 51st Grammy Awards. In addition, the album earned a nomination for Best Rock Album. They then took home the Grammy Award for Record of the Year, Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal and Best Rock Song for "Use Somebody" at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards.
