NME’s Yearly ‘Cool List’ 2005

Turner from Arctic Monkeys has been named the coolest man on the planet in NME’s yearly
Cool List.

The charismatic leader has knocked Babyshambles’ Pete Doherty off the top spot. Doherty
has fallen to sixth place, while his ex-Libertines partner Carl Barat, who shared
the Number One place with the troubled singer in 2004, has fallen to Number Nine.

NME Deputy Editor Alex Needham said: “Featuring both elder statesmen and thrusting
young turks, the NME Cool List is the one every musician wants to be on. Last year
Pete Doherty and Carl Barat were joint Number One and 2005’s list looks set to stir
up even more controversy.”

For the full list see this week’s issue of NME, which also contains a free CD featuring
many of the bands featured. The list below is what is reportedly the ‘Cool List’ but
