    Along with Wolfmother the Arctic Monkeys might be the most played band on my ipod. They are an indie rock band from England. They were formed in 2002
    They made a name from themselves on fan based sites. I absolutely love their sound. IMO it is a great mix of sounds like the beatles, early rolling stones, REM, and much more. The lead guitarist blows me away.

    The first record, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, blew me away. It was a blast of fresh air. Just hard, simple guitar rock about getting drunk, chasing birds and running from cops. Awesome record. They were unable to carry that energy though to their next two records IMO.

    From first hearing I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor, I was hooked! Has anyone checked out Alex's other band, The Last Shadow Puppets, they are pretty good too!
