“”Do I Wanna Know?” is a song by the British indie-pop band Arctic Monkeys included on their fifth studio album, AM. It was written by its singer and guitarist Alex Turner.
The song was first performed live in May 2013 during the AM Tour concerts and reached number 11 on the UK Singles Chart, being the band’s highest single since the Fluorecent Adolescent in 2007.
The song is in G Minor and uses a catchy and repetitive guitar riff, in the heavy rocky line of the previous album, “Suck It And See”, with Alex Turner playing a 12-string guitar, while bass and drums play a simple but forceful pattern that enhances the rock character of the song.
