Arctic Monkey Turner Voted Coolest Man

Rock newcomer ALEX TURNER of British band ARCTIC MONKEYS has been voted coolest man on the planet, beating out competition from superstars like LIAM GALLAGHER and KANYE WEST.

OASIS frontman Gallagher and rapper West came second and third respectively.

NME's associate editor ALEX NEEDHAM says, "I think what people really want at the moment is authenticity.

1. ALEX TURNER (ARCTIC MONKEYS) 2. LIAM GALLAGHER (OASIS)

3. KANYE WEST

4. ANTONY HEGARTY (ANTONY AND THE JOHNSONS) 5. BRANDON FLOWERS (THE KILLERS)
