    I'm from the north of England and I 'get' the Arctic Monkeys, in fact, I am certain I knew about them, and their catchy lyrics and guitar pop far before anyone else on here. I understand them and the rest of the country well enough to know that they came to fame by being around at exactly the right time and riding a huge wave of indie popularity. They're good fun and a lot better than most generic indie-pop music out there like the Kaiser Chiefs but not a patch on Iggy and the Stooges who still have more energy, stage presence and certainly better song than the Arctic Monkeys will ever have.

    I am interested in seeing Arctic Monkeys but if the Stooges are on at the same time I would skip the monkeys. I have seen the Stooges a few times and its always been fun. We don't quite have to worry about that conflict though as of today.

    Can i get them and still not like them? Or are there strict rules about that sort of thing?

    strict rules only apply when you're dealing with a snob.

    do whatever you wish.

    Nah, you're a cockney, you don't count Just thought it was worth explaining to our American cousins why Arctic monkeys mean nothing to them, just as I doubt goldie looking chain (who I think are rubbish, btw) or the streets mean anything to them.

    I'd rather see the kooks than Iggy Pop, but then I'd rather amputate my own limbs with a blunt knife than see Iggy Pop. He might have been good thirty years ago but he sure as hell isn't any good now...

    I'm actually from Liverpool, I just happen to live in London.

    A lot of my friends saw The Stooges at ATP in December, and they were blown away.

    I saw Iggy Pop at distortion in Nottingham years ago and saw the Stooges at Leeds festival and they were great both times. Just because somebody doesn't like the arctic monkeys doesn't mean they don't get them.

    i wouldn't be surprised if the stooges were added. Teddybears are playing on Sunday and Iggy Pop sings in their most popular song right now.

    oh. and iggy pop>arctic monkeys

    If you go anywhere and ask people if they know who arctic monkeys are..chances are, they won't. But if you ask if they know who the stooges or iggy pop is, chances are they will, and can possibly name a song.

    Yes, and popularity is definitely proportional to quality...

    You need to check out the Coachella movie and see The Stooges' performance. Then you will see how STUPID your statement is.

    What are you talking about? The Stooges were broken up before the Sex Pistols even arrived. You are faulting Iggy Pop for sounding like people that were influenced by him...
