Thesis statement laid out, half of Who the Fuck 's new tracks are less about the experience of being young and bored and smartly observant, the combination that, to date, has colored their best tracks, but about the experience of being the Arctic Monkeys themselves-- still young, sometimes bored, but their vision now limited to a tour itinerary or press clippings, and unable to successfully articulate why that's so frustrating. For the listener, it's easy to spot the chief problem: Songs about the need and drive to become rock and roll stars are more powerful and interesting than the ones about the experience of being a rock and roll star-- just ask Noel Gallagher. Arctic Monkeys singer and lyricist Alex Turner-- an expressive storyteller with a keen eye for detail and a deceptively sly wit-- seems well-equipped to navigate the divide between talking as one of the kids and talking to the kids, so perhaps his stumbles are more a shell-shocked response to the speed in which they gained their fame than a fundamental flaw. It's reminiscent of the aforementioned Gallagher's exhausted solo acoustic turn on Oasis B-side "Talk Tonight". The other two new tracks are a third-tier character sketch "Cigarette Smoker Fiona" and an understated ballad "No Buses" , with the latter serving as the record's grower and most thoroughly satisfying track. So, more a reiteration of their mission statement than a new record, the hint of ferociousness and fight on the title track is a positive sign; that the band feels backed into a corner by the manner and speed in which it gained fame isn't.

Arctic Monkeys - Who The FucK Are Arctic Monkeys? Lyrics
We all want some one to shout for Yeah, everyone wants somebody to adore But heroes aren't what they seem When you've been, where we've been. Have I done something to trigger The funny looks and the snigger Are they there at all Or is it just paranoia. Everybody's got there box And doing what they're told You push my faith near being lost But we'll stick to the guns. Don't care if it's marketing suicide We won't crack or compromise Your derisory divides Will never unhinge us. There's a couple of hundred Think they're Christopher Columbus But the settlers had already settled Here long before you.
