Sheffield band big winners at the 02 Arena

Arctic Monkeys have scooped 3 of the 7 NME Awards they were nominated for this year.

The band won Best British Band, Best Track for Fluorescent Adolescent and Best Video for Teddy Picker.

Arctic Monkeys got together in Sheffield in 2002 and had their first hit – a No 1 – with I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor.

Klaxons scooped NME Best Album for Myths Of The Near Future and Kate Nash beat Amy Winehouse to Best Solo Artist, proving her Brit Award for Best British Female Artist wasn’t a one-off fluke.

The Manic Street Preachers went home from London’s 02 Arena with NME’s Godlike Genius honour.
