Arctic Monkeys - 'R U Mine' live at the 2014 BRIT Awards + winning awards!

Arctic Monkeys kicked off the 2014 BRIT Awards this morning, with a fiery rendition of their single, 'R U Mine?'.

Although their performance was flawless, nothing can beat frontman Alex Turner’s acceptance speech [and badass mic drop] for the Best Album Award!

"That rock'n'roll, ay? That rock'n'roll, it just won't go away. It might hibernate from time to time, sink back into the swamp. I think the cyclical nature of the universe in which it exists demands that it acquiesce to some of its rules. But it's always waiting there, just around the corner, ready to make its way back through the sludge and smash through the glass ceiling, looking better than ever. Yeah, that rock'n'roll, it seems like it's faded away sometimes, but it will never die. And there's nothing you can do about it. Invoice me for the microphone if you need to."

TOTAL HERO.
