* ForeignCussWord: When ''Suck it and See'' was released in the US, many retailers put a sticker of the title, construing it as [[BawdySong sexual innuendo]], while in England (where the band come from) it's a saying that means "try it and find out".

* LIsForDyslexia: Subverted by the song ''Br'''ia'''nstorm.'' No, it's ''not'' meant to be spelled ''Br'''ai'''nstorm''. It helps to look at the lyrics, which apparently serve as a TakeThat aimed at a particularly memorable fan named Brian.

* TheCoverChangesTheGender: Averted early on with their cover of "Love Machine" and then more recently with "You Know That I'm No Good" by Amy Winehouse and "Katy of a Mission" by Katy B.

* CelebrityIsOverrated: The band is pretty known for keeping a low public profile; in interviews, they often try to dispel the idea that they have become international superstars, fearing it might lead to indications that they have "sold out." * TheCoverChangesTheGender: Averted early on with their cover of "Love Machine" and "Baby I'm Yours" and then more recently with "You Know That I'm No Good" by Amy Winehouse and "Katy of a Mission" by Katy B.

* MinimalisticCoverArt: NewSoundAlbum: ''Humbug'' surprised many critics in a positive manner when it was released, since it explored many different genres such as PsychedelicRock and stoner. ''Suck It it and See''.See'' began the band's recent foray into a more pop rock sound.

* ShoutOut: Their logo on ''AM'' is very heavily inspired by the famous Music/BlackSabbath logo on the cover of ''Master of Reality''.

** WordOfGod is that they consider this an artform, as its hard to make something that sounds like nothing actually sound good.

\nAlbums:* MusicIsPolitics: Arctic Monkeys have had a reputation in the industry for being very conscious toward their own image, from their choice to sign on to Domino Records rather than a bigger label, to giving interviews which generally lament their fame. They seem to agree with the idea that they have sold out since their music has become so popular and successful, which is why they tend to experiment so much with their following songs.

Arctic Monkeys are a hugely successful indie rock band hailing from Sheffield. The band is composed of Alex Turner (lead vocals and guitar), Jamie Cook (guitar), Nick O'Malley (bass guitar and backing vocals) and Matt Helders (drums and backing vocals). The band was formed when Turner and Cook got guitars for Christmas while at school and proceeded to begin practicing before recruiting Helders and their original bassist, Andy Nicholson. They were the first band to ever become really successful through the internet, as they handed out free demos of their songs to fans at gigs, who then uploaded them to social networking sites (more specifically, MySpace), leading to the band generating a huge fan following ''without even realising it''.

* CoverVersion: On live concerts they've done quite a few such covers, but the most notable would be their take on Music/TheBeatles' "Come Together", performed during the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer OlympicGames in London during the "doves of peace" segment. Their version would peak at 21st on the UK Singles Chart, becoming their highest-placed single since "Crying Lightning".
