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.

Never heard any of their music after their 2nd album, until this video. Their hits sound like mid 90s run of the mil alternative music. They had a unique raw sound. And..... after watching the rest of the video I can see why the shift happened. It makes sense now. Good video. In my mind they were still a mid 00s band with a unique blue-collar worker sound to it. By their initial sound you cuoldn't tell they were influenced by 90s hip hop.
Hey. What's up with tame impala's newest sound. It's like KP's stuff has become more accessible and comfortable. Like a very big soft comfy pillow with no edges. Like anti-anxiety meds. ok, you get the picture. You gonna cover that soon, or you waiting for the full album to drop

I know that British musicians are great, but Arctic Monkeys is the one that love the most. I'm from Indonesia but here everyone is not familiar with such a great band like Arctic Monkeys.

Suck It and See was my favorite album. I never understood why my ex would always listen to their other stuff, but it's better late then never to learn that everyone hated it apparently

the problem with making such a top quality album like AM is that your next album should be close to it as it can so it doesn't sound bad (as it can't continue to always be better), that's why most of the people have mixed feelings about tranquility base

As an American Arctic Monkeys fan, I personally only ever heard them on the radio when the AM album was big. That’s it
