It's been a little more than 10 years since the world was blessed with the Arctic Monkey's track 'Brianstorm'. It was the English band's fourth single and reached number two on the UK Singles Chart.

But who would have guessed that more than a decade since that song was released, Britain would be again be treated to another Brianstorm, however this one would be slightly different. According to the UK's Met Office, the next storm to wreak havoc across Britain will be called Brian.

For those who aren't Arctic Monkey fans, it would sound just like all the other generic names handed out to storms, hurricanes and cyclones. But people who enjoy the Sheffield band are absolutely loving the storm name's significance.

If you haven't heard the Artic Monkey's track, then you should know that the lyrics really don't describe a storm well.

"Top marks for not trying

So kind of you to bless us

With your effortlessness

We're grateful, so strangely comforted."

Let's hope that Storm Brian, aka Brianstorm, won't try too hard to decimate the UK.

Storm Aileen was named yesterday shortly before it hit Ireland and the UK, bringing winds of up to 65 mph (104km/h). More than 7,000 homes and businesses were left without electricity and the morning rush hour was slowed down even more by the hammering rain.

The Met Office says storms are named to help 'increase awareness of severe weather and ensure greater safety of the public'.
