List Rules This list includes studio albums only, so if you add an album make sure it's a proper studio release.

The Arctic Monkeys are one of the best indie rock and best alternative rock bands out there. Since they’re such an influential band, let’s rank the best Arctic Monkeys albums, with the help of your votes. With tones of the Libertines and Franz Ferdinand (bands that were also breaking at the time) the Arctic Monkeys burst onto the UK indie music scene with a lone single, “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor” (2005) which went straight to No. 1 on the UK singles chart. The Sheffield, England’s debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not (2016) performed equally as well with rave critical reviews and numerous end of year awards.

This Arctic Monkeys discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Arctic Monkeys albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included Arctic Monkeys singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Arctic Monkeys album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Arctic Monkeys album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.

The list you're viewing is made up of a variety of different albums, including AM (2013) and Favourite Worst Nightmare (2007). This list of popular Arctic Monkeys CDs has been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion.
