One fantastic band- true they're not the next Beatles ...

But if you listen to the lyrics: everyone who's gone out boozing, tried to chat up someone up and got shot down, tried to get past club bouncers, been surrounded by fakes and posers, been in shit relationships or whatever- you can relate to them and laugh at the way Alex Turner presents it!

Unfortunately, Arctic Monkeys is the victims of its own hype! Hype kills bands as critics and music snobs alike make themselves seem so above everyone else by slating such bands and saying they haven't lived up to their snobbish and superior expectations (because thy ALWAYS know best!).

The truth of the matter is, AM is a great original, down to earth, non-manufactured band with an extreamly talented lead singer and writer!

So I'm glad that people are sitting up and taking notice to them instead of some X Factor/Simon Cowell reject!

Oh and they are amazing live!!!

Some good Arctic Monkeys Lyrics.

"Get off the bandwagon and put down the handbook"

"Last night these two bouncers
And one of em's alright
The other one's the scary one
His way or no way, totalatarian"

"Don't believe the hype" Arctic Monkey's motto!

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 poor over rated indie band increasing the rapid pace of the decline of Indie music in Britain along with other bands such as 'The Kaiser Chiefs', 'Razorshite' and 'Babyshambles'.

They have a great following of people who are completely stupid and have no musical knowledge at all who often claim that they are the next Beatles. How dare they blaspheme in this way. Their lyrics consist of working class sheffield slang and go something along these lines: 'I bet you dont yu know mardy bum on the dance floor of san fransisco, scummy man!' yes all their songs sound completely the same and they're all rubbish!
Stupid fuck: LIKE OMG OMG WTF LOL! THE ARCTIC MONKEYS ARE LIKE SOO KOOL!!!!!!1111one THER LYRICS LIKE MEAN SO MUCH TO ME! THEY ARE LIKE SO THE NEXT BEATLES!
Any person with an average amount of brain cells: Do you know who the Beatles are?
Stupid fuck: YEH THEY WROTE THAT NURSERY RHYME DIDNT THEY, YELLOW SUBMARINE!
Any person with an average amount of brain cells: Pass me my gun.

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"
NME-"but.."
Me-"no"
