Introducing Chart Attack, Dork’s new podcast dedicated to 21st century number one singles

We're kicking off on Wednesday 9th August with Arctic Monkeys' classic 'I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor'.

What makes a number 1? That’s what we’re exploring on Dork’s new podcast Chart Attack, where we jump in our big pop time machine and revisit number ones from the turn of the millennium onwards.

Exploring the highs and lows of the 21st-century UK chart, we’ll be dissecting cultural milestones, iconic pop stars, telling classic pop stories, and taking a trip down memory lane ourselves. Most importantly, we’ll be asking the crucial pop question: is this a good song?

For Chart Attack’s inaugural episode, debuting on Wednesday 9th August, we’re casting our minds back to 2005. In the thick of an indie chart stronghold, one band rose to the top, where they’d stay for the next two decades. Arctic Monkeys hit the summit with their debut single ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’ in October 2005, marking the start of their now iconic legacy.

You’ll be able to download a new edition of season one of Chart Attack every Wednesday via all the usual podcast providers, including Apple PodcastsSpotify and more. Subscribe now to check out the trailer for season one.

It will also be broadcast each Sunday on Dork Radio at 6pm BST. You can tune in via the Dork Radio app. Available for iOS and Android, it also allows you to get all the latest music news direct to your mobile device. You can also listen at, or via TuneIn on iOS, Android and more.
