Arctic Monkeys 'AM'

The biggest song in the Arctic Monkey's repertoire must certainly be "Do I Wanna Know?" from the album AM. Disagree? Name the other one of their hits that's surpassed the one-billion views mark on YouTube. That number is staggering.

One-billion is one-million views one-thousand times.

Consequence of Sound reports that they're just one of twenty-five musical groups to reach this pinacle and one of only twelve rock bands with the distinction - Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive” and Guns N’ Roses’ “November Rain” to name a couple.

Other huge names with whom they share this honor include Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, and Psy. 

I wonder how much money they've made from all those streams?
