A band that makes Rebecca Black look good. The singer looks like a woman, which excited me when I heard the name of the band, until he opened his mouth. Then my ears bled. Also any band that has erotic insinuations in the name, but does not, in fact, have erotic undertones is terrible.
Gurl: OH MAI GAWD The Strokes
IS LYKE THE WORST THING I'VE EVER HERD AND I LISTEN TO BLCK MUSIC
ALL DAY! WHAT THE F***!
A group of homosexuals from New York who think they’re cool because they’re trapped in a musical era that time forgot, and with good reason. Many emo kids think that they’re hip by listening to the "the Strokes" but are simply pandering to the notion that you have to be outside of the mainstream in order to be good. A complete lack of originality and talent, don’t waste your time listening to The Strokes
because the Rolling Stones
did it better, and they did it 40 YEARS AGO.
Emo Kid: Do you want to listen to the new "The Strokes" album? I got it on vinyl because I’m so hip.
Nromal person: No I have many things I would rather do with my time, like make furious man-love to a cheese grater.
Emo Kid: (slices wrists and lays in the corner crying)
Those iTunes critics even liken The Libertines to The Strokes - come on now!!!
Five kids from NYC who have nothing to say.
"Look at the Strokes, their haircuts are so cute".
"Let's form a band like the Strokes. We can wear timeless vintage threads, sing like Iggy Pop, and date supermodels".
A band with interesting guitar, yet has one of the worst singers ever. His voice is so boring it kills the music, although when he belts he sounds good. But his regular singing voice is very boring. Just listen to the song "Reptilia", the guitar intro is great but then the vocals come in and kill the entire flow.
The Strokes are good but their singer sucks, they need a new one.
A freaking kewl DEATH METAL band.
OMG THE STROKES ARE DEATH METAL LIKE P.O.D, Simple Plan, and Papa Roach!!!!!!!!!!
A band comprised of spoiled children of talent agents and other rich NYC businessmen. At different moments they rip off The Velvet Underground and Television, and are perpetually drunk/coked up.
Contrary to popular belief, they are not 'indie,' they are on RCA which is about as independent as Burger King.
A hit with any white bread suburban kid who wants to develop an edgy persona.
e.g. I was listening to the Strokes in my H2 on the way to Nordstrom's to pick up my CGBG shirt. I feel very rock and roll now.
