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''.

* EverythingsBetterWithMotorcycles: There was a lot of motorcycle imagery during the "Suck It and See" phase, especially in the eponymous music video. Alex Turner often wore a Triumph Motorcycles t-shirt during live shows, too.
