“Brianstorm” (often mistaken as ‘Brainstorm’) is a song by Sheffield-based indie rock band Arctic Monkeys and is the opening track on their second album, Favourite Worst Nightmare. The song was released as the first single from that album on 2 April 2007, debuting at #11 in the UK Singles Chart via downloads alone. The single was released in physical formats on 16 April, the week before the release of the album, and charted at #2 in the UK Singles Chart behind Beyoncé’ and Shakira’s “Beautiful Liar. ” It is the band’s fourth single in the United Kingdom, following number ones “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor”, and “When the Sun Goes Down”, as well as the non-album track “Leave Before the Lights Come On”. The song was noticeably louder and heavier than previous efforts, marking the band’s evolved sound.
