A Mercury Prize for Arctic Monkeys



The Arctic Monkeys won the coveted Mercury Prize on Tuesday Sept 5th for the Best British Album of the Year.

Two thumbs up for Arctic Monkeys who on Tuesday Sept 5th won the Nationwide Mercury Prize for the Best British Album of the Year, thanks to their debut album "Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I Am Not", which has been sold over 363,700 copies in its first week.

The Sheffield-based band surely created surprise with the winning, for which they beat the other heavy nominees vie for the 20,000 coveted prize, including the likes of Sway and Radiohead's frontman Thom Yorke.

Accepting the prize, Arctic Monkeys' frontman Alex Turner acknowledged, "Normally it doesn't go to a band that has sold as many albums as we have. But we are very pleased with it".
