Arctic Monkeys set sales records with their debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, in 2006 when it sold more than 363,735 copies in its first week on the shelves.

The Official Charts Company says this is the first time that a band signed to an independent record label has had that many number one albums.
