Thread: Arctic Monkeys!!!!!

  1. #1

    Default Arctic Monkeys!!!!!

    Ive been going through alot of these posts seeing alot of bashing on RATM and RHCP and other but I haven't seen anyone talking about how awsome it is that the Arctic Monkeys are playing this year. Not only is it so much that they haven't playd in america for more than 1 month but it is rumored that they have a new cd coming out 3 days before coachella. what im trying to get at here is that they are my favorite band and IMHO the best band out of all 3 nights playing can i get some support from some AM fans!

    your limited viewing of the boards means you have not been privy to the rampant arctic monkey bashing that happened a while back.
    it was awful.
    i myself like arctic monkeys and am looking forward to their new album.

    Hell, no you won't! I'm watching both bands play. I saw AM live last year, and they fucking ROCK! I had a great time.

    Not my favorite music, but they seem like fun. Maybe I'll give them another try.

    the first album translated well at the koolhaus, plus they've been through the english festival circuit so they should be battle hardened. Looking forward to favourite worst nightmare.

    I agree, I saw them at the Wiltern with We Are Scientists. I thought they put on a really good show. (I wrote about this in another post somewhere). Deja vu...

    I am definitely watching them.

    I haven't seen anything by the Arctic Monkeys that I can diferentiate from the "Monkey" Monkeys. I'd be interested in seeing any videos.

    That's blasphemy! What a joke. I hope they're not getting paid too much to play the gig.

    I honestly think they are nothing special, at all. They kinda suck actually. Never seen them live, but I hear split opinions about thier live act. I will for sure be catching some one else. Or perhaps they will give up thier spot on the second line to Tom Waits or The Mars Volta...?

    I saw them last year in Sydney, and it was good fun.
    They are kids telling cheeky stories and rocking out - can't expect complex from teenagers.
    I'm keen to hear the new tracks also - see how 20 year olds write tunes.

    i like them - great lyrics and unquestionably English, so maybe that's why the brits like them more than the yankeeeeees.

    There is nothing original about them but they are a lot of fun and decent live. I like them.

    I saw them live last year and was pretty unimpressed. There's no way in hell anyone that young should be so completely jaded already.

    I'm glad they're playing. The lines for the frozen lemonade will be shorter during their set.

    I'm looking forward to seeing them but if I had the option I'd rather have Kasabian playing over them. Those guys rock!
