Arctic Monkeys

An indie-ish rock band. To me it's one of the last great rock groups to be formed, considering the trend in music nowadays.

Their best album is their first one, which is also the fastest selling debut album ever (at least in England). Something about Alex Turner's voice and lyrics is just memorable. They're currently working on their new album.



My Top 5:
-I Bet You Look Good on the Dance Floor
-Fluorescent Adolescent
-Fake Tales of San Francisco
-Secret Door
-The View From the Afternoon

Also, if you liked this group, check out The Last Shadow Puppets, the lead singer's other project.

  3. dude Arctic Monkeys is the shit man, and yeah I agree that the lead's vocals are somewhat... special. Fake Tales of San Francisco and Bet you good look on the dance floor are two of my favorites in my ipod, the only one I don't really like is Brianstorm... don't know why tho'

  10. I love, Arctic Monkeys, I think they're great, but I eel it's one of those bands that's best to listen to once in a while, and not repeatedly. Listening to them too much takes away from their raw feel.

    Probably just me though.

  22. I remember when these guys broke in NA, but then just as quickly fell off the charts. :/ I always found them refreshing.
