The artics monkeys are such an overrated band. Muse or Snow Patrol should have won both of the awards the Monkeys took away.

Don't like Winehouse either, but then she had no competition.

The Line up for Best Brit male and female was awful, there just are no good ones.

I'd say the Arctic Monkeys are actually under-rated. It's just hype, hype, hype but in terms of song-writing, music and the way they perform they are absolutely bang-on. They could do without being everyone's little "I'm with it" kudos generator 'cause they are actually brilliant.

Although at times they do remind me too much of Shed7 playing Dead Kennedys covers.

Amy Whinehouse earned her Brit with that performance.

At least that soft bint Lilly Allen didn't win!

The arctic monkeys deserve it. They are what music is missing. They were unknown kids who rocked out and got famous quick. So that album is raw music. That's why it's good. Who cares if everyone else likes them and is on their bandwagon. They should be. Since when does popularity make you bad? I don't get that concept with music. "Oh, there is this obscure band that are awesome...I don't know why they haven't made it huge yet." Bam! the band hits it huge and that person starts calling them sell-outs and blah, blah, blah. SHUT UP. I'd sell out too! I want things, like a nicer car (paid off), an nice home (paid off) and would totally sell out to ensure financial stability and enable early retirement.

Exactly....It's the Damon Albarn effect. When Noel Gallagher was trying to break through he hated all these wishy washy pop stars who made out that being successfull was some sort of ironic annoyance.

The lyricist from the Arctic Monkeys is brilliant and he's unpretentious enough to be honest in singing about whats happening to him rather (underage drinking, scarey bouncers, girls going out with knobheads) than all these precocious statements about the world.

Anyone who rhymes "Scarey 'n" with "totalitarian" must be doing something right.

How can I carry the momentum of people agreeing with me here to a thread about religion???


:p


Their album makes you feel like your 17 again. That's what's great about it...if you are in deed 17 you are living it, if you're older, you remeber it. Can't wait to see what they do next.

They'll make an awesome VH1 Behind the Music...
Women, Drugs, Alchohol, and getting sober. Someone is going to die too, usually the bass player or drummer. Ahh, the price of fame.
