|Ewan McGregor Unimpressed by Arctic Monkeys
|At Last - a celebrity who doesn't like Arctic Monkeys!
Scottish Hollywood actor Ewan McGregor had the following to say on everybody's favourite new band:
"I don't like them and I don't know why all the other bands are singing their praises."
Now, we're not saying Ewan McGregor has to like the Arctic Monkeys, but it'll be amusing to see if anymore celebrities are quick to jump on the anti-arctic bandwagon.

I know this is way off topic an all, but when did our Alex turn 20?
By julie on 05 Mar 2006 11:38 pm
he was good in star wars and all, but he kinda comes off as a jerk in real life. who knew he had bad taste in music?
alex turned 20? when?
By Shawy on 06 Mar 2006 01:27 pm
He just looks like a Westlife fan! Tosser!
By andy on 06 Mar 2006 02:10 pm
i'd say more of a spice girls fan!
By me on 06 Mar 2006 03:14 pm
wikipedia says alex turned 20 in april.
i liked ewan in trainspotting.
By Sky on 06 Mar 2006 03:50 pm
well thats kinda weired.... wikipedia also says he`s born in 1986.... we haven`t had april yet, so one must be wrong, or he`s still 19...
By Lies on 06 Mar 2006 06:02 pm
Still off topic, lol, I want to know more about Alex (the whole band of course) but I always am happy they maintain to keep they're private life private!
Ewan sucks lol, no, he seems like this mad man, but it's him opinion, I don't know, what is he talking about anyway, I don't like take Madonna either but do I need to say that out loud? Whatever
By ed on 06 Mar 2006 06:07 pm
i dont blame him and totally respect his opinion. my wifw hates teh arctic monkeys with a passion!!!
By Andre3000 on 06 Mar 2006 07:29 pm
Is this the same boy who sang wi Nicole Kidman? hahaha, I Rule, Arctic Monkeys also rule, but not as much as me
By rhian on 06 Mar 2006 10:37 pm
they were in the magazine that comes with my paper and the journalist said Al was 20!?
Oh and Andre3000, he was the guy who sang that God-awful song with Nicole Kidman for thier film Moulin Roge, wasnt a vey good film either. Oh and I'm sure you do rule.

At least someone is not following the crowd. The Arctic Monkeys are not too bad but this hype is just stupid. Front page and the rest, they were heroes before a debut - come on, let's get sensible!
By Andras on 08 Mar 2006 03:12 am
One more thing... Is it really good for a young band to be under such pressure? Can they be bigger than this? Even if they are better? For me, at least this over-the-top media reaction destroyed them. Every time they get praised I get sick. Fortunately, partly because of them Franz Ferdinand lost some media attention, that was another quite-ordinary band pushed by music critics and Radio 1.

i love the monkeys, but they are so hyped and over-rated!!
By . on 08 Mar 2006 11:08 am
At last, somebody with some sense!!!
Arctic Monkeys have got to be the most overratd pile of shite in the world. Crap music, crap lyrics, crap singer, crap band.
WHAT IS ALL THE FUSS ABOUT?
They're worse than Coldplay!
By craig on 08 Mar 2006 12:52 pm
they dont deserve all the praise, i met alex in the glasgow and he was nothing but rude, i like the ir cd but refused to buy it because of his behaviour to my mate, euan has a right to his opinion as do i!
By Katherine Whitaker on 08 Mar 2006 08:57 pm
Bastard. and will whoever '.' is (who said that they are worse than coldplay go write something better.
no seriously, go write something better. i'd be interested to hear it.
when did alex turn 20?
By jen on 09 Mar 2006 01:11 am
re: the person above -- he's not been twenty for long. i'm sure his birthday is nov/december, but i might be wrong, it could be jan/feb.
By Rhian on 09 Mar 2006 10:22 pm
craig, If you dislike them so much, why did you bother finding this site?

btw, i just saw arctic monkeys on snl and they looked and sounded very nervous. then in the middle of their second song, alex pointed out in the crowd and said "that man is yawning." they kind of came off as spoiled brats but i think they just remembered why they don't do TV shows. the crowds are just so weak.
By Boy George on 12 Mar 2006 01:07 pm
I saw the arctic monkeys in sheffield back in the day, they wer good then and there still good now,but Mr Mcgregor is entitled to his own opinion, he also went round the world on a motorbike, it was awesum
By Rhian on 12 Mar 2006 02:53 pm
Dose anyone have the NNL video?
By sky on 12 Mar 2006 08:49 pm
hehe @ ondal, alex seemed drunk to me though, I wanne be able to play the e-guitar when drunk, that would be nice ^-^ Why making a fuss about every thing said every move and stuff...as long as it sounds right its all good...
By Rhian on 13 Mar 2006 06:32 pm

This is too bad cause i really liked ewan but not anymore
just kidding. but he could be less of a jerk, couldn't he? i don't necessarly go round on the midia saying whoever I don't like
By Fran-Chan on 27 Mar 2006 02:29 am
I love the Arctic Monkeys for their really original sound and their catchy lyrics. They definately have the potentials of being a good rock band. The only thing about them that bugged me was their SNL performance. Was it me, or did Alex have his back to the audience half the time? I think they were really nervous, and they should get over that.
By faye on 11 Apr 2006 03:52 pm
