Music Features | 10 things every fan of The Strokes knows

The Strokes

Because making music or not, few bands match up to The Strokes 

1) You know who broke the zoom

Nikolia broke the zoom

It’s always the quiet one’s…

2) You get really tired of people saying ‘Is this it’ is their only good album

Hahahahah NO… just go away and listen to the other albums properly.

3) You love their individual solo work… But miss when they’re not together

4) You know the pain of an extended hiatus and live in fear of another one

no why por que

It’s that constant nagging doubt in the back of your mind….

5) You despair at the lack of tour dates

The Strokes tour


Release an album, DONE… Tour that album, NOT DONE. We know the band aren’t going to tour Comedown Machine, but there are rumours that The Strokes new album will be out at some point in 2014 and they might tour this…

6) You know never to be a mic stand…

7) Or a camera…

Moral of the story, Julian likes to destroy things… and not just fan’s hearts.

8) You love Albert Hammond SNR for being the source of all The Strokes leaked news


Guitarist Albert Hammond JR’s dad is usually the first one to share juicy news from The Strokes, and the fans love him. Legend indeed.

9) You know that a band with two guitarists is always better than a band with one

It’s just science.

10) You know that they may have their differences, but through thick and thin they will always be…

And you’ll always love them for it.
