Arctic Monkeys Score A Hit With Beatles Cover
But the musical moment that appears to have garnered the most attention was Arctic Monkeys' version of The Beatles' "Come Together". The live performance – led by frontman Alex Turner on vocals and a pretty Les Paul – is currently sitting at #14 on the iTunes download chart, according to NME.
In addition, Boyle's soundtrack to the whole ceremony (featuring songs by The Rolling Stones, the Sex Pistols, The Jam, Muse, Queen and more) is currently at #1 on the iTunes album charts in Great Britain, Spain, France and Belgium. It has hit #5 in the U.S. Check out video of the cover here.
