After nearly a decade of scaling Billboard rankings, the band rules Alternative Songs for the first time with 'Do I Wanna Know?'
More than eight years after first appearing on a Billboard chart, Arctic Monkeys score their first No. 1 on Billboard's radio-based Alternative Songs survey, as "Do I Wanna Know?" rises 2-1.
The band logged one prior entry on the Nielsen BDS-powered ranking, its breakthrough hit "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor," which reached No. 7 in 2006.
"Do I Wanna Know?" is the lead single from the group's fifth studio album, "AM," which debuted at a career-best No. 6 on the Billboard 200 the week of Sept. 28, 2013. The set bowed atop the Official U.K. Albums chart the same week, making the band the first independent group to score five consecutive No. 1 U.K. albums.
