Ten years ago today – October 17, 2005 – four young Sheffield punks released their first single ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’. It caused immediately an impressive breakthrough for Arctic Monkeys. They already had a huge fan base following the regularly release of demo’s of songs on their Internet blog and also because of their spectacular live shows where an unofficial demo compilation CD ‘Beneath the Boardwalk‘ was sold and shared afterwards online. But that brilliant debut single was the real official wake-up call to all youngsters around the globe that a new gang arrived in town with Alex Turner on the first horse. Sonically they were different to anything else and Turner proved from day one that he was an amazing observer/songwriter. The rest is history. They released five albums so far with ‘AM‘ as their masterpiece and in between Alex Turner got himself an Elvis quiff, started dressing sharp and America went down too.
Now let’s go back 10 years ago. Here’s the legendary live performance clip that was made to promote the big one…

.
[Verse]
Stop making the eyes at me,
I’ll stop making my eyes at you.
What it is that surprises me is that I don’t really want you to

And your shoulders are frozen (as cold as the night)
Oh, but you’re an explosion (you’re dynamite)
Your name isn’t Rio, but I don’t care for sand and lighting
The fuse might result in a bang b-b-bang-go

[Chorus:]
I bet that you look good on the dance floor
I don’t know if you’re looking for romance or…
Don’t know what you’re looking for
I said I bet that you look good on the dance floor
Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984
Well, from 1984!

[Verse]
I wish you’d stop ignoring me because it’s sending me to despair,
Without a sound yeah you’re calling me and I don’t think it’s very fair

That your shoulders are frozen (as cold as the night)
Oh, but you’re an explosion (You’re dynamite)
Your name isn’t Rio, but I don’t care for sand and lighting
The fuse might result in a bang with a bang-go

[Chorus]

Oh, there ain’t no love, no Montagues or Capulets
Are just banging tunes and DJ sets and…
Dirty dance floors, and dreams of naughtiness!
Well,
.
[Chorus]
