Yeah, I thought FF was Scottish. I'm probably wrong though.

They are from Scotland, but Scotland is part of Great Britain. So technically, they are British. However, Scots tend to have a great deal of national pride and it would be unlikely that they would refer to themselves as British. They are Scots.

Yeah, that was my bad, I meant English.

The Arctic Monkeys sound like an English Franz Ferdinand.

Um, I think Scotland is part of the United Kingdom. As is Great Britain. Right?

I've heard Arctic Monkeys a couple times on the XM radio and they didn't really do anything for me. Am I hearing the wrong song off the album?
