The Libertines are a British band who love British culture, drugs, alcohol, sex, and rock and roll. Considered by some to be "the only current band that actually acts like a real rock and roll band" due to their infamously scandalous history.

The members are Pete Doherty (notorious adorable crackhead sleazegod) on guitar/vocals, Carl Barat (seedy yet respectable sex idol with the best hair and arse) on guitar/vocals, John Hassall (more quiet member, favored by Adam Green, with famous cheekbones) on bass, and Gary Powell (Sadly sometimes ignored yet absolutely amazing) on drums. The media however, LOVES focusing on the troubles and love-hate relationship of Pete and Carl, thus the other 2 members are hardly seen.
The Libertines' music is reminiscent of The Clash, The Jam, and even some reggae. One album was produced by Mick Jones of The Clash. Their songs are deep, dancy, melodic, and of course, oh so sassy. Go do yourself a favor and listen to these beautiful British lads.

The greatest band ever.
Listen to Up The Bracket or the singles -don't look back into the sun-

Ostensibly an English band comprised of four members but only two are ever seen: look up Carlos Barat and Pete Doherty. They sail on the Albion towards Arcadia on their quest to save rock n'roll. They used to hustle.
My name is John and I'm in the Libertines; get a microscope.

amazing british band who wear red english millitary jackets, headed by a sleazy sexgod and a delerious yet completely lovely crackhead poet. with a kickass drummer and skinny cute bassist that shows no emotion whatsoever. who are into union jack, smoking, girls, secret rooftop gigs,and refrences to herion. who have millions of annoying artsy british teenage girl fans.

A wonderful British band troubled by drugs and alcohol usage.

Favoured by Mick Jones of The Clash.

Two members are homogay*

One amazing drummer.

And a bassist who hardly ever smiles.

NME Magazines 'answer to The Strokes,but they're british,they have fitter members and better music on a whole' Pete Doherty is going out with kate moss.Caros Barat is hanging around with confused looking indie B-Listers.John Hassall has his own band Yeti(quite good actually) and Gary?....
Good Question what is Gary doing at the mo?.....
