Arctic Monkeys Frontman Declares That Rock and Roll Will Never Die (A Top Story)


.
On Monday Arctic Monkeys Frontman Declares That Rock and Roll Will Never Die was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) While the Arctic Monkeys generated plenty of headlines (not to mention record and ticket sales) on the strength of their latest album, AM, frontman Alex Turner stepped out this week and incited a firestorm of attention with his words.

After winning British Album of the Year at this week's Brit Awards, Turner used his acceptance speech as a rallying cry for a return to rock 'n' roll, poking a little fun at One Direction along the way.

"Yeah, that rock'n'roll, it seems like it's faded away sometimes, but it will never die," Turner told the crowd. "And there's nothing you can do about it." He then literally dropped the mic and left the stage, but not before offering to pick up tab for the microphone he was about to break. What nice English lad.

But when Turner and drummer Matt Helders sat down with Radio.com a few weeks ago, there was no mic drops. Instead they sat down and spoke about the process behind their confident new full-length, which Turner says sounds like the "Spiders From Mars covering Aaliyah."

Watch the guys talk about their hip-hop influences, being an internet band and channeling Timbaland in the video - here.
