Uni lecturer devastated about how old Arctic Monkeys fans are

A lecturer from the University of Cambridge has shared his devastation over the ‘relentless’ passage of time after hearing a student banish the Arctic Monkeys to the days of relevant bands gone by.

Matt Farr, who teaches philosophy of science at the iconic institution, took to Twitter to express his disappointment at the English rock band’s fall from youth culture.

Everyone, take a breath – this is going to be hard to stomach.

He posted about overhearing a humbling conversation between his students., tweeting: ‘Overheard a university student say “Arctic Monkeys were my dad’s favourite band when I was little.”

‘The passage of time is relentless, unfathomable, cruel, and unforgiving.’

His observation generated over 131 thousand likes in seven hours, and continued to spread across the Twitttersphere as others lamented over the grim realisation.

Continuing on with an apology to his fellow Arctic Monkey fans, the lecturer who thinks time is directionless – as per his Twitter bio – wrote underneath his bombshell: ‘Apologies to those irrevocably harmed by this tweet. But hey, embrace mid-life; make plans for what’s left of it.

Pitted alongside the likes of Eminem, Harry Styles, Taylor Swift and Robbie Williams, the four-piece have played the Pyramid Stage twice before, leading speculators to guess it’ll be third time lucky.

With album The Car dropping recently, keen fans waiting to hear the new set list noticed a gap between two dates in June that would allow for a pit-stop in Somerset.

Already ruled out is a return from The Spice Girls after Victoria Beckham denied the rumours and crushed fans hearts on Watch What Happens Live.

All in all, the iconic band still look good on the dance floor and is already selling out tickets for their upcoming 2023 tour.

Following the recent release of two new singles and album number seven, the Sheffield natives are clearly here to stay as they gear up to showcase their new sound in packed out arenas.
