"10.000 Nights of Thunder" is the second single by Danish pop band Alphabeat. It was released in the UK as "10,000 Nights" in anticipation of "This Is Alphabeat", the international version of their debut album. It topped the chart in Alphabeat's native Denmark and peaked at number 16 on the UK Singles Chart.

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.
