Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not is the debut studio album by English rock band Arctic Monkeys, released on 23 January 2006 by Domino Recording Company. The album surpassed Elastica's self-titled album to become the fastest selling debut album in British music history, shifting over 360,000 copies in its first week, and remains the fastest selling debut album by a band. It has since gone quintuple platinum in the UK.

Released January 23, 2006. Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not Tracklist. 1. The View from the Afternoon Lyrics. 2. I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor Lyrics. About Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not. Scrappy, lager-fueled tunes about being young and bored in a bleak Northern England steel town. Even Yanks couldn’t resist these raging Brit-pop-punk gems, and it wasn’t long before the Sheffield quartet’s debut became the fastest-selling debut album by a band in UK chart history. Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not Q&A.

On Monday, the Arctic Monkeys sold 118,501 copies of their debut album in the UK, more than the rest of the top 20 combined. It's a startingly high figure not just because they're set to be the Biggest New Band Since Oasis but because of the speed with which they've gatecrashed their nation's public consciousness, going from unknown indie band to No. 1 on the singles charts in roughly six months.

Whatever People Say I Am is practically an old-fashioned concept album about working-class clubbing, a Saturday Night Fever for the British sons and daughters of parents raised on disco and punk. Yet Turner’s aim isn’t to be the best dancer, or to escape to the big city: It’s merely stayin’ alive, and pulling a few birds. The opening track, The View From the Afternoon, sets the stage with dead-end dive-bar lyricism: I want to see all of the things that we’ve already seen, Turner sings. They’ve made an album that . punk fans of several generations could enjoy, if not claim as their own.

Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not is the debut studio album by English rock band Arctic Monkeys, released on 23 January 2006 by Domino Recording Company. The album surpassed Elastica’s self-titled album to become the fastest selling debut album in British music history, shifting over 360,000 copies in its first week, and remains the fastest selling debut album by a band. It is the only album to feature Andy Nicholson as bass player before he was replaced by Nick O’Malley. In October 2013, music magazine NME also ranked the album at number 19 in their poll of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not has worldwide album sales of 3,390,000 million copies sold. Arctic Monkeys are an English rock band formed in 2002 in High Green, a suburb of Sheffield.

Breathless, hyperbolic praise was piled upon the Arctic Monkeys and their debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, an instant phenomenon without peer. Within the course of a year, the band rose from the ranks of an Internet phenomenon to the biggest band in the . all on the strength of early demos circulated on the web as MP3s. When Whatever People Say I Am hit the streets in January 2006, it sold a gob-smacking 118,501 copies within its first week of release, which not only made it the fastest-selling . debut ever, but sold more than the rest of the Top 20 combined - a remarkable achievement by any measure. Last time such excitement surrounded a new British guitar band it was a decade earlier, as Brit-pop hit overdrive with the release of Oasis' 1994 debut, Definitely Maybe.

Back in 2006, Arctic Monkeys were cast as revolutionaries for uploading music to the internet.

With hindsight, 2006’s Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not lacks both the acerbic edge of its fairly immediate successor Favourite Worst Nightmare – released just 15 months later – and the sense of completeness conveyed by their most recent, Josh Homme-assisted affair, Humbug. But the same – that the debut doesn’t match its follow-up releases – could be said of many a domestic indie success: Radiohead’s Pablo Honey is an embarrassment placed beside the superlative structures of The Bends, and Pulp didn’t hit their stride until fourth effort, His ‘n’ Hers.
