Arctic Monkeys are an English indie rock band formed in Sheffield, UK. Playing together since 2002, Arctic Monkeys are known as one of the first bands to achieve fame solely via the internet.

The Arctic Monkeys have released five studio albums since their 2006 debut release “Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not” which hit the number one spot in the UK album charts. The band’s breakthrough single, “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor” won them scores of fans as well as three NME Awards in 2006. The band’s debut album was so well received that it even went on to win the prestigious Mercury Prize for album of the year.

The Arctic Monkeys’ subsequent four studio albums – “Favourite Worst Nightmare”, “Humbug”, “Suck It and See” and “AM” – have all hit the number one spot in the UK album charts and have followed up this success in the US as top 20 albums. The band’s regular touring schedule and their frequent appearances at music festivals – they have even headlined twice at Glastonbury, UK – have ensured that their fan base is constantly growing, and also keeps their music fresh on the mind of their fans.

The Arctic Monkeys are famous for not having a particularly distinctive style of music. While the band falls under the genre of indie rock, they purposefully change their style with every album and have expertly explored everything from garage rock to hip-hop. One element of the band’s style that is distinctive and constant is frontman Alex Turner’s sharp and heavily accented lyrics which form the centerpiece of every song. Turner claims that John Lennon is one of his main influences and that he hopes to write songs as versatile and musically complex as John Lennon’s “I Am the Walrus”.

The Arctic Monkey’s versatility is certainly one of their biggest draws and has meant that they can appeal to a wide and varied audience, and will continue to do so for quite some time.
