LONDON: Indie quartet Arctic Monkeys won the coveted best album honour at Britain's top music awards on Wednesday for "AM", their seventh BRIT Awards gong in total and second of the night at a star-studded show in London.

The band, who in the past have responded frostily to their BRIT successes, earlier performed at the ceremony for the first time despite multiple nominations since 2006.

"That rock 'n roll, it just won't go away," frontman Alex Turner said as he accepted the award.

The Arctic Monkeys were the bookies favourites to walk away with the Mastercard British Album of the Year award this year, the third time they have won it.
