Arctic Monkeys released their new single 'Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair' online last night (April 11), and fans have been posting their verdicts online at NME.COM/blogs since.

Reaction has so far been generally positive. User Samuel noted the "quality, passion and dirt in this one."

Jernej, meanwhile, wrote that the song was "certainly not bad, but it'll take a few more listens to see whether it's as good as their old material... I have no doubts there will be even better songs on the album."

Rob wasn't quite so positive, accusing the band off ripping off Alice In Chains on the song.

The single is the first to be taken from 'Suck It And See', the band's new album, out on June 6.

Head to NME.COM/blogs to hear the song and have your say.
