Arctic Monkeys win Best British Band award at the Brits
Arctic Monkeys won the Best British Band award at the Brit Awards 2008 tonight (February 20) in London.

The band were dressed up in traditional English rural clothing for the event, resembling old-fashioned farmers, sporting brown wellies and flat caps.

“Thank you everybody. We’re the Arctic Monkeys. We are the most fantastic,” mumbled frontman Alex Turner, before blowing a hunting horn he had brought on stage into the microphone.

Presenter Kelly Osbourne shoved the band off stage after their spontaneous loud musical contribution.

Editors, Girls Aloud, Kaiser Chiefs and Take That were also nominated for the award.
