Arctic Monkeys Essentials

Arctic Monkeys parlay Britpop bounce and garage rock swagger into impish, street-smart charm. Led by Alex Turner—who can transform from witty punk to cool crooner—the Sheffield band cheekily staked their claim to the UK indie scene with sophomore calling card Who the F**k Are Arctic Monkeys? While they initially drew comparisons to bands like Blur and Oasis, the quartet have always upended expectations, flirting with sunny psychedelic pop ("Cornerstone") and indulging in sludgy hard rock ("R U Mine?"), all while maintaining their vintage rock mystique.
