The Strokes are an American rock band formed in New York City in 1998, consisting of Julian Casablancas (lead vocals), Nick Valensi (guitar, keyboard, backing vocals), Albert Hammond, Jr. (rhythm guitar, keyboard, backing vocals), Nikolai Fraiture (bass) and Fabrizio Moretti (drums, percussion). Met with wide-spread critical acclaim, the Strokes' 2001 debut, ‘Is This It’, helped usher in the garage rock revival movement of the early-21st century-and ranks number eight on Rolling Stone's 100 Best Debut Albums of All Time, number two on 100 Best Albums of the 2000s, 199 on the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and number four in the NME Top 500 Albums of All Time.

    I can't escape it Never gonna make it Out of this in time I guess that's just fine I'm not there quite yet My thoughts, such a mess Like a little boy What you running for? Run at the door Anyone home? Have I lost it all? Struck me like a chord I'm an ugly boy Holding out the night Lonely after light You begged me not to go Sinking like a stone Use me like an oar And get yourself to shore Bang at the door Anyone home? It's just what they do Right in front of you Like a cannonball Slamming through your wall In their face I saw What they're fighting for I can't escape it I'm never gonna make it 'til the end, I guess Struck me like a chord I'm an ugly boy Holdin' out the night Lonely after light Banging on the door I don't want to know Sinking like a stone So use me like an oar Hard to fight what I can't see Not trying to build no dynasty I can't see beyond this wall But we lost this game So many times before I been on a cold road I'll be waiting, yeah I'll be waiting for the old times Waiting for the tide to rise I been on a cold road I'll be waiting, yeah I'll be waiting for the old times Waiting for the tide to rise

    Goid thing they stayed away from their original band name: The Backstrokes. Would've been embarrassing.

    Dealing with chronic illness, autoimmune disease, inflammation, depression. This song speaks to me on a different level. The world can be very unfair to some of us. It doesn’t make sense but it’s our reality and we just hope for everything to get better but unfortunately it doesn’t for some or most . It’s a sad reality :( but this is the battle that we face daily .

    My father used to have this as his ringphone theme. Since he died in 2009 I can't stop thinking about him when I listen to this masterpiece. Love you Pierluigi

  17. elliswhitworth

    Wonder if Jules will keep his hair when it goes grey???

  18. Asm Shariar Chowdhury

    The first 10 seconds of the song sounds like “I Want to break free” by queen.

  19. kind kid

    anyone saying this is a copy of “dancing with myself” needs to listen to A LOT more new wave/postpunk. the sad thing is this sounds NOTHING like billy idol or dancing with myself. people need to educate themselves on music of the past so they don’t make such precise statements off of nothing. if by billy idol, people mean “80’s” that’s sad :/

    1. kind kid

      hernanblv heard it 1000 times. valley girl 😍

    2. hernanblv

      for educational purposes listen modern english i melt with you.

  24. tom r

    I see this as a commentary on family life. Making bad decisions may not lead to a stable family life, but it's a hell of a lot more fun. These guys are getting a bit older and it seems they miss the "bad decisions" that were a bit more exciting than raising a kid.

    This song has grown on me so much. I went from thinking it’s okay to it being one of my favorite Strokes songs of all time. Julian has never sounded better!

  45. GeniusImmortal

    The Strokes always have that something extra. That extra color to work with. They are far above the pack, both lyrically and sonic-wise.

  51. Mrc Starf

    This nostalgy... (especially starting at 4:12) when the neverending story meet the secret of NIMH, the black Cauldron and Dark Crystal!

  52. max gershfield

    this was my first taste of the strokes. It came on late one night on MTV2. I fell in love with them within seconds. I bought room on fire shortly afterwards. My parents didn't understand when they walked into the kitchen one evening and I was inches away from the family stereo, with Reptilia at full volume, basically crying. I would hit refresh on the strokes fansite hundreds of times, just to see if they'd uploaded any other stupid film footage (that's what Insta's there for today lol.) To this day The Strokes still carry such strong sense memories of my early teens and I still think that the band (Julian in particular) are the coolest dudes ever.

  53. Taufan Laksana

    can't believe they really use 144p format

  69. Norman Garcia

    Under cover of darkness Tired of all your friends knocking down your door So long friend and adversary So there is this friend who at night goes out and does something stupid by influence of friend. While other person is waiting and watching there other half ruin what might or what they do have. Awwwhhh Jules. You are a poet and philosopher
