Arctic Monkeys are an English rock band. Formed in 2002 in High Green, a suburb of Sheffield, the band currently consists of Alex Turner (lead vocals, lead/rhythm guitar), Jamie Cook (rhythm/lead guitar), Nick O'Malley (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Matt Helders (drums, percussion, backing vocals).
The band have released four studio albums: Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not (2006), Favourite Worst Nightmare (2007), Humbug (2009) and Suck It and See (2011), as well as one live album At the Apollo (2008). Their debut album became the fastest-selling debut album in British music history, surpassing Oasis' Definitely Maybe and remains the fastest-selling debut album for a band in the UK.
Since, at the moment this band is my favorite one (and it has been for 2 years i think), I believe is better to only put the music instead of bore you with the bio.
I'm posting the full online album stream of the first 3 records.
Whatever People Say I Am That's What I'm Not (2006)
The debut album released in 2006. It has since appeared in several critics' publications, and is often cited as one of the best rock albums of the 2000s. And it is indeed. Great rock tunes. Favorite tracks: Mardy Bum, Fake Tales of San Francisco & A Certain Romance

The online full album stream was blocked by YT. Sorry.
