Arctic Monkeys, Foo Fighters Are BRITs Big Winners
February 21, 2008
Arctic Monkeys sarcastically paid tribute to the BRIT school, despite having no association with the establishment as they walked away with the two biggest awards at last nights BRIT Awards.
The Sheffield band picked up Best British Album and Best British Group at the ceremony at Earls Court in London.
Dressed as country gents, the band, who shunned last year’s awards, accepted Best Group, saying: "We are the Arctic Monkeys. We are the most fantastic.”
It’s the third year in a row that the band have scooped prizes at the BRITs, which this year were hosted by the Osbourne family.
Mark Ronson graciously accepted Best British Male and made reference in his speech to the fact that he had spent most of his life in America.
As the awards drew to a controversial close, Sir Paul McCartney performed a medley of hits, which included, ‘Live And Let Die’ and ‘Hey Jude’, to celebrate being given the Outstanding Contribution Award.
