Arctic Monkeys’ ‘Suck It And See’ censored in America

New album title proves too rude for some US supermarkets

Arctic Monkeys‘ new album ‘Suck It And See’ has been deemed “too rude” by some American supermarkets and will be sold with a sticker over the title.

The band, speaking to XFM, said a number of major US supermarkets had told them the album’s title was “rude and disrespectful”.

Singer Alex Turner said of the Stateside reaction to the new album’s title: “They think it is rude, disrespectful and they’re putting a sticker over it in America in certain stores, big ones.”


The band also revealed they wanted to recreate the live feel of their 2006 debut album ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not’ during the recording process for their new LP.

Turner added: “The first one obviously was done pretty much like that [live] because we’d been playing it around before we recorded it. That was something we wanted to try and do again.”

‘Suck It And See’ is currently streaming online ahead of its official release next Monday (June 6).
