Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not is the debut album by Sheffield band Arctic Monkeys, released on 23 January 2006. The album became the fastest selling debut album in the UK since Definitely Maybe by Oasis. The album sold over 360,000 copies in its first week, but lost the title in November 2007 to Leona Lewis's album Spirit. It has since gone quadruple platinum in the UK, and won the 2006 Mercury Prize.
The album includes both tracks from the band's original EP, Five Minutes With Arctic Monkeys, as well as their first two singles and UK Number Ones, "I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor" and "When the Sun Goes Down."
