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.

A deranged, poorly-planned attempt to seize power; particularly if an election does not turn out in your favor.
Disgraced attorney Rudy Giulianiโ€™s face became drenched in sweat and hair dye as he invented evidence of widespread voter fraud during President Trumpโ€™s clown coup.

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.

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.
