Arctic Monkeys18 Aug 2012
Noel Gallagher, lead single of seminal rock band ‘Oasis’ once remarked he hated the name ‘Arctic Monkeys’ the British indie band fronted by Alex Turner.
Arctic Monkeys?! I can’t take a band like that seriously. I mean, they’re never gonna win a Brit or a Grammy with a name like that. (Gallagher in mocking voice) ‘And the winner for best new artist goes to… the Arctic Monkeys…’, I don’t think so…”
Arctic Monkeys have won two BRITs and two Grammys. And, the band were one of the featured performers for the opening of the London 2012 Olympics.
