Fans of Indie Rock and psychedelic rock music were in for a pleasant surprise when Arctic
Monkeys released their debut album ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not’. The
band garnered huge support in UK when their first single “I bet you look good on the dance
floor” went on to top the UK music chart. Based in Sheffield, UK, the band was created in the
year 2002 by Alex Turner, Jamie Cook, Matt Helders and Andy Nicholson. As far as the naming
of the band is concerned, the credit goes to Jamie Cook, the lead guitarist. The Arctic Monkeys
posters carry his name stylishly etched, which is a big hit among the music lovers all over the
Arctic Monkeys posters essentially carry the pics of four band members, who have always been
its integral part. Alex Turner is the front man and the lead vocalist cum the lead guitarist. Other
members include drummer Matt Helders who also is a backing vocal, Jamie Cook who is the
lead guitar and rhythm guitar, and bassist Nick O’Malley who, like Helders is also a backing
vocalist. Nick replaced bassist Andy Nicholson who was the band’s core member since inception
but left in 2006.
Arctic Monkeys soundscape can be broadly classified as Indie Rock. They have also been
influenced to quite an extent by musicians like Drake, Outkast or Aaliyah. The band
acknowledges the lyrical influence of John Lennon as well. Arctic Monkeys’ USP is its rapid
delivery of lyrics in string Sheffield accent by Alex Turner.
Arctic Monkeys had the credit of making a debut at number 1 position in UK charts with their
first single release. “I bet you look good on the dance floor” was the first song released from
the band’s debut album titled ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not’. With first week
sales of more than 360 thousand copies, this album achieved the feat of being the fastest-
selling debut album in the history of British music industry.
After the mammoth success of their debut album, Arctic Monkeys managed to release 4 studio
albums, a couple of video albums, 24 music videos, 3 Extended Plays, and 20 singles before they
went on hiatus in 2014. All the five albums of the band had made it to the top in UK and Irish
Albums charts real quick. None of the albums, however, could manage No.1 on the US Billboard
200. ‘Favorite Worst Nightmare’, the second album could reach No. 7 and the last album ‘AM’
that was released in 2013 could reach No. 6 on the US Charts.
Within 12 years of being in existence, Arctic Monkeys got several nominations and awards for
themselves. They have won the BRIT Awards 7 times and have been nominated for the
Grammy’s thrice. The music of Arctic Band has also achieved 20 NME Awards, 5 Q Awards, and
