You’ve GOT to Hear This: Arctic Monkeys – “Do I Wanna Know?”

Arctic Monkeys
Arctic Monkeys, and English rock band formed in 2002 has certainly made and impact on the music industry since their first debut album Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, released in 2006. Since then, they have released four other albums, increasing in popularity with each one. With their most recent Album, AM, they have adapted a more rock vibe that an indie feel. The band consists of the members Alex Turner, Jamie Cook, Nick O’Malley and Matt Helders. All four of these guys hold a certain chemistry that’s really hard to find in long-lasting bands these days. They have developed as a group over the past years, creating and adding new components to their signature sound. Do I Wanna Know? gives off a very olf classic-rock feel, and it really transports you to a different era the moment you press play.

This song makes me want to put on red lipstick and a leather jacket before I go out on the town and steal a car. A little over exaggerated, but I can’t help it. It’s certainly nice to wake up to because from the moment my eyes open I automatically feel like I can take on the world, and that no one can f*ck with me. The Arctic Monkeys have this edgier tone that flows throughout the record, and even continues off of the hard edged rockier sound of Suck It And see.

Do I Wanna Know simmers with a slow burning groove that makes you want to swing your hips while picking out the best red lipstick you could find- or in the guys’ cases, picking out the best hair gel to put you hair into the perfect quiff before riding off on your motorcycle. Arctic Monkeys create a perfect sound with this song, and it really does add some refreshment to this day an age where you seem to think that really rock music is lost, when in fact it’s just buried under mounds of teen pop getting filtered out into society. I recommend giving this song a listen the moment you wake up, because it will honestly make you feel so invincible. Add this one into the catalog of the Arctic Monkey’s greatest hits, and this will be a hit for years to come. So lock your cars up, because you may never know who will get a little bad-ass feel from listening to this song.
