You probably know the Arctic Monkeys from tracks like:

“Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” or “R U Mine?” and of course “Do I Wanna Know?”

And that’s understandable, their album AM is what finally brought them into the mainstream. It debuted at number 6 on the Billboard 200 and sold more copies than their last 3 did combined.

Yet at home in the UK, the Arctic Monkeys are nearly a household name, where all 5 of their albums have debuted at number one and where their first album still reigns as the fastest selling debut album - by a band - in the UK. (363,735 copies sold in its first week!)

They’ve headlined the largest festival in the UK. Twice. They’ve changed the way record labels distribute music today and they’re one of the only bands to win Best British Group and Best British Album on three separate occasions.

So what was it about AM that finally helped them break into worldwide markets? Let’s look back at their journey and find out who the f*** are Arctic Monkeys?

This music video essay is on the English rock band Arctic Monkeys, from their local beginnings to their rise to the world stage. I talk about their 18-song demo, Beneath the Boardwalk which helped thrust them into popularity after it was uploaded to the internet. Their debut record Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not is still the top selling album by a band in the UK. Their sophomore Favourite Worst Nightmare came back with even more energy. They worked with Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme for their third album Humbug introducing a new desert rock sound. They then diverted for their fourth album Suck It and See before finally releasing AM, the album that gained them worldwide attraction. Let’s dive into what audiences loved so much about AM. The grooves recalling their R&B roots, falsettos, their new personas and more.

Will the Arctic Monkeys' new album Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino continue the band's streak of success? We'll just have to wait and see.

I NEVER knew that AM was Arctic Monkey's first break in America. I just assumed since they were popular here in Ireland/UK, that they'd be popular there.

I’m American and I really prefer the Arctic Monkeys’ early stuff. I discovered them when I heard Fake Tales of San Francisco way back when and there was so much energy and bravado on those first two records. Their newer albums are awesome, but Whatever People Say I Am is one of the best records ever made.

I have been a Monkeys fan for over a decade now and they have never disappointed. Each album is its own unique form of art. Tranquility Base leaves me speechless. Each song is so carefully and beautifully crafted. Favourite Worst Nightmare will always be my favorite though. True fans not just “AM” lovers will understand and appreciate that.

How could you not mention Franz Ferdinand, but mentioned Queens of the Stone Age, when you were mentioning their early influences. Their riffs were obviously very influenced by Franz Ferdinand. The vocal style however was very far from Franz, so it´s not like they were copying Franz, but still strange you don´t recognize the influence ... Well, maybe you don´t know Franz Ferdinand and their music.

I don't know why but I feel like any record named AM will likely succeed...just past experience

I do like the sound of those singles BUT it wasn't the Arctic Monkeys that were wrong to begin with...their debut is still always what comes to mind and gets me excited when I hear the band's name

good for them that they eventually found a new comfortable place, but I still believe they could have thrived to this day with their original sound

I really love their early record, they had the rawness in their music, it feels like throwing back into 90's. But, I didn't hate their newer songs. It feels more mature and well produced, they showed us that they're improving their game.

By the way, great video!

I just don't get people who immediately say "they're older stuff was better." As if they're new stuff just sucks. Like Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino is fucking incredible, it's just completely different than anything before. Which is insanely impressive if you ask me. I love the space age vibe and the slowness at times. But hey, that's just me. I would love more stuff like Favourite Worst Nightmare, but as an American, AM was the first album I heard by them, and it's what I fell in love with. But I've grown to completely appreciate their earlier stuff even though it's made for a British audience. I just don't understand extremist fans, for anything really besides just bands, who hate everything except for the one album they love. Like how do you live life with no changes? Change is one of my favorite things and seeing a band evolve is awesome, because I'm along for the ride to see what's next.

Arctic Monkeys are a group of intelligent monkeys that live in the arctic, making technologies , and are bent on world domination.

Also, there's a band with the name.

My brothers raised me with bands like AM since I was little, and I absolutely loved them but I thought they retired and it took me a while to realise they had made a new album, 'AM'

Because of how their latest album turned out, i believe the next album (if they make one) to be very different again and hopefully puts rock back in the pop because of the long await from fans, although I also enjoy rock being more of a subculture.

Glad to know Favorite Worst Nightmare did chart in America and my memory didn't fail me. I remember Brianstorm getting radio play and was the first Arctic Monkeys song I heard. Second being Fluorescent Adolescent. went back to their first album and I felt a familiarity with it like I heard it before and rediscovering it. Been a fan since

I absoloutely loved Arctic Monkeys. Their first 2 albums were pretty much the soundtrack to my teens.
So many songs still kill me or make my day if I listen to them but
I never felt anything with the AM album and its quite upsetting to find out why and the fact that Am pulled more revenue than all the previous combined.
Alex Turner now looks like a Burberry model and their new music makes me feel nothing.

Favourite worst nightmare is a personal favourite. Followed by the more pop sound of AM. They keep changing and it’s not helping them. I went to a U.K. concert of theirs after the new album. every time the lights changed colour was for a song from the new album. The whole arena went silent and stayed that way for all those new songs. Very few fans will like the new stuff and the old equally it’s like they’ve never really found their place and experiment with every album. I’m still to decide if that’s good or bad for me as a fan.

Humbug is easily my favourite Arctics album. A lot of people don't like that they moved on from their originally straight forward indie sound but if they didn't they wouldn't still be a relevant band. There were heaps of bands doing the same style of music as the Arctic Monkeys around the time of their first couple albums. Ok theses other bands didn't do it as well as Arctic Monkeys but the reason everyone has forgotten about them is because that style of music was for a time and a place. The Arctic Monkeys were smart enough to realise when to move on and good enough musicians to be able to reinvent themselves.
