Arctic Monkeys have topped the US Alternative Songs chart for the first time ever.

The band's single 'Do I Wanna Know?', taken from their 2013 album 'AM', has earned the band their first top slot on the chart, which rates the most popular alternative rock songs. The chart is ranked by radio plays measured by Nielsen BDS.

The band had previously only logged one entry on the Alternative Songs chart, when they reached Number Seven in 2006 with 'I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor', according to Billboard.
