Arctic Monkeys Just Announced Their New Album And It’s Already A Big Fat Meme
They have really named one track 'The World's First Ever Monster Truck Front Flip'.
Late last night, Sheffield outfit Arctic Monkeys finally announced the release date of their long-awaited new album.
Their sixth record, titled Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino, will land on May 11 — four-and-a-half years after the release of their last album AM (and just in time for Splendour, perhaps?)
Fans were excited, but as they scrabbled to pre-order the record they noticed…. this:
It took a LOT of refreshing on a broken site but I ordered the new Arctic Monkeys record on vinyl & lemme just say… this tracklist is VERY concerning. pic.twitter.com/lp1Hn40tIv

It wasn’t a joke: Arctic Monkeys have really named three of their new songs ‘The World’s First Ever Monster Truck Front Flip’, ‘The Ultracheese’, and ‘Batphone’.
To be fair, strange song titles are hardly new for the lads — over the years they’ve come up with corkers like ‘Mardy Bum’, ‘Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair’, Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secured’, and ‘Perhaps Vampires Is A Bit Strong But…’. So really, this shouldn’t come as too much of a shock.
But that hasn’t stopped the internet from turning the tracklist into a big fat meme:
