Arctic Monkeys are a four-piece indie rock band from Sheffield, England, whose debut single, "I Bet You Look Good On the Dancefloor", went straight to number one.
In fact "I Bet You Look Good On the Dancefloor" is one of their cruddier songs compared to the likes of 'Scummy', 'Mardy Bum' and 'Fake Tales of San Fracisco'.
They are known for their modern -
" Last night these two bouncers
And one of em's alright
The other one's the scary one
His way or no way, totalatarian "

and witty lyrics
"And all the weekend rockstars in the toilets
Practicing their lines "
A - Arctic Monkeys rock man!
B - Yeah man! :-D
A - Stupid name though man...
B - Yeah man... :-(

A great band if you're a teenager living in the states, having 'panic! at the disco'or 'fall out boy' shoved down your throat. Fresh lyrics and sound, perhaps a bit overrated and most certainly not nearly groundbreaking or inventive enough to be the next 'beatles'. If you're interested in great bands from the UK, check out the Kaiser Chiefs or The Kooks.
Person 1: Man, I'm so sick of stupid emo boys with no balls wearing girl pants and eyeliner.

Person 2: Listen to the Arctic Monkeys, they're so much better.

Person 1: Nah, I'll go listen to the Kaiser Chiefs

A decent Band, with good musicains,ok songs, and sour sounding lyrics, they are quite good, but heavly over rated, there nothing that new, to music, yet everyone seems to beleive so, its just melodic indie\garage, with sheffield accents and spots,also drink fosters, honestly who drinks fosters anyway.
NME-"the arctic monkeys are the best thing to happen to music since the smiths, or the beatles"
Me-"just no"

An overrated music act, who are apart of the English Indie Pop Punk scene. They engulf the listener in a muffled warble of sound, with no distinguishable notes. They are currently gaining alot of credit, but will eventually fade out to second rate musicians due to the hype of their first cd, "Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not", and their inability to create proper music.
The cd title itself, also denotes the band with a pretentious label. It displays them trying to be the 'outcasts' of the music industry, even though there are currently twenty something other bands making it big who sound and act exactly like them.

However, the Arctic Monkeys do have the potential to be good. The lead singer has a fairly decent voice, so if they actually focused on making music and not noise, then who knows, they may actually be good.
Arctic Monkeys are extremely overrated.
