A four-piece rock band born out of a suburb of Sheffield, England in 2002, Arctic Monkeys enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame in 2005, when the then-teens tossed out free EPs to draw a fan base. Although generally considered part post-punk revival, the band has tweaked their sound each album, beefing up with heavy-handed drumming and frantic riff-heavy songs, while maintaining the quick-quipped lyrics and chunky bass lines that made them famous. Their newest album, AM, contains strange citations of hip-hop, so expect some back vocal falsettos and Dr. Dre beats atop all the swaggering balladry and muscular guitar work.
