Arctic Monkeys make music history

Arctic Monkeys

The Arctic Monkeys have made music history with 17 songs in the top 200 at the same time.

New rules mean that tracks downloaded from the internet count towards the Official UK Singles Chart.

All 12 tracks from their new album, which came out last week, have made it into the charts along with five from their first album.

The Sheffield band sold around 85,000 copies of their second album on the first day of release.

The new album, called Favourite Worst Nightmare, is expected to be the best selling of the year so far.
