Arctic Monkeys get 17 singles in UK Chart

NME.COM presents the Sheffield band's very own singles chart

Arctic Monkeys
Having scored a Number One for new album ’Favourite Worst Nightmare’, Arctic Monkeys also took over the UK singles chart this week (April 30).

As previously reported, due to a error by a download site the band’s second record was sold as individual tracks rather than as an entire album making downloads of their new songs eligible for the singles chart.

In addition several older songs have also reappeared in the countdown which added to the current single, ’Brianstorm’, and its B-sides, has seen the Sheffield band notch up 17 tracks in the Top 200 this week.

So here's which Arctic Monkeys' songs made it into the chart (UK singles chart positions in brackets):

’Brianstorm’ (7)
‘Fluorescent Adolescent’ (60)
‘505’ (74)
‘Teddy Picker’ (94)
‘Temptation Greets You Like Your Naughty Friend’ (97)
‘Balaclava’ (104)
‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’ (105)
‘D Is For Dangerous’ (116)
‘Old Yellow Bricks’ (122)
‘Do Me A Favour’ (127)
‘Only One Who Knows’ (130)
‘This House Is A Circus’ (132)
‘The Bad Thing’ (140)
‘What If You Were Right The First Time’ (160)
‘Leave Before The Lights Come On’ (176)
