Arctic Monkeys' Matt Helders Says It's A Good Thing If Guitar Music Isn't Popular
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.09.2014



In an interview with NME, Arctic Monkeys drummer said that it's a good thing if guitar music isn't on the charts.

He said: "It's hard to say what will happen in 2014, because things are moving quicker than you could ever predict. Nowadays you don't walk into a gig and see a band and think, 'That's the next scene'. Music is instantly available, and by the time you discover it, someone else will have already listened to it and moved on. Maybe guitar bands will come back around again and reclaim the charts, but it's all very well me saying that it all comes down to them: they've got to have songs that are good enough to play on the radio. But if guitars are a dirty word at the moment, then I like that, I think that's a good thing. When it's popular, it feels like there's something weird going on like you've hijacked the charts. That's how we felt when it happened to us, even though there were still a lot of guitar bands around at the time. We didn't even expect our first single to get into the Top 20, so we definitely felt like we shouldn't have been there."
