    Despite having the worst name in history, THE ARCTIC MONKEYS are the latest band to hit it big in the UK. They were recently voted Best Band by NME, despite their debut album coming out only 1 month ago (which seems a bit excessive to me). Anyway, I just wanted to make this thread now because chances are in a few months all you hipster doofuses will be in love with them, and I can link to this page and tell you that I was all on this before you were and rub it in your faces.

    I can also take this opportunity to say that they are very good friend's with my cousin. I have met all of them except for the bass player. They seemed alright, but I remember everyone used to make fun of the singer because he thought he was such hot shit because he was in a band that was actually playing shows (my cousin's band Johnny Danger, played one show, I think, and then disbanded), and yeah, he was pretty full of himself. They weren't the Arctic Monkeys then, they had some equally gay name that I can't remember.

    This is their website, you can hear a couple of their songs in the video section. Despite the terrible name I think they're alright, though they sound like a Northern version/ripoff of the Libertines in my humble opinion.

    Why would you change the title of this thread? Now I just look like I'm talking about nonsense...

    No way man... because you say the name right at the start and not only will this pull people who don't know about it all, wondering just as much about donkeys as monkeys... and you'll get the kids who know and just think you typo'ed... PLUS you'll also pull the kids who think they're smarter than you coming to tell you that you're stupid for saying Donkeys... but now they know you didn't say it... but whatever, the thread still gets hits... and you expanded your fanbase, so to speak

    plus I was just remarking about the Donkey Kong/ Monkey Kong delima in the video games thread so you just kind of stepped in it too... sometimes they get a whiff before you wipe your shoe...

    I heard this shit. it's going to be the next annoyingly large band. It's got that catchy, bratty, self absorbed quality that al the hipsters dig these days. I hate them now, and in two months no mesuring insturment will be able to get a reading on how much I hate them.

    I hate 95% of band names these days. People think they can sell records by wearing tight pants and growing a beard. There was this group called "Valient Thorr" on AOTS the other day and they were horrible! HORRIBLE!
