I do consider this one of their best albums, although that's not my reasoning for placing this on here. Remember the whole, pay your own price deal? They might not have been the first to do it but, come on...Radiohead did it. One of the most popular bands on the planet. They somewhat advanced the evolution of the music industry with that move.
Yeah I could see this getting more coverage than OK Computer and such do to it's possible impact on the industry.

Yes, Arctic Monkeys. I can hear everyone bitching already.
You'll actually find a surprising amount of love for them here on MB. I prefer FWN myself but it's a good album and was a refreshing sound when it came out.

They'll certainly get remembered for the superior 'Rush of Blood to the Head' or hyped up 'Viva La Vida' before they are remembered for X&Y.

Radiohead weren't the first to do the "pay your own price" deal. They probably will be one of the last though; everyone else lost a shitload of money.

Who was the first major (worth mentioning) outfit to do it?

Modern day classics eh. Well, I'm certain album(s) both the Mars Volta and Pure Reason Revolution will be remembered for their contributions to a modern day progressive rock revival, and Sleepytime Gorilla Museum will be remembered for igniting the interest of many people post-2000 in avant-garde, and then there's Radiohead's Kid A to consider...

But yeah, I'm sure all the people who haven't figured out how to learn about new bands via things such as Wikipedia or who use last.fm for trend-following will all say stuff by Coldplay, Disturbed, the Ting Tings, John Mayer, blahblahblah are all "classics" of the current era.

I never said they were the first. And I HIGHLY doubt they will be the last. The recording industry is rapidly changing and converting to more of an independent/grassroots-style since these recording companies are being so stubborn.

They were pretty bad but their song "Get Your Hands Off My Woman" was freaking hilarious.

I know Andrew W.K. gets a lot of crap and I can understand why, but I Get Wet really is a solid rock n roll album from beginning to end. IMHO it's one of the best high energy, basic rock albums of the 00s.
