One of the most hyped bands of the new millennium, Arctic Monkeys burst onto the scene with their 2006 debut, Whatever People Say I Am That's What I'm Not. The English quartet released their fifth album, AM, on September 6th, 2013. The record marked a significant change in style, one frontman Alex Turner described to Rolling Stone as, "almost like the Spiders From Mars covering Aaliyah. There's like a shimmery, intergalactic, slightly cosmic element to the way both those genres make me feel."

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
