1. "Hard to Explain" (Is This It)
We end at the beginning. "Hard to Explain" was the Strokes' first single, and it acts like a mission statement for the band's sound: retro yet contemporary, catchy as hell, drums that sound like a machine, Television-like dueling guitars, driving bass. And there's that breakdown — the "I missed the last bus, I'll take the next train" part — which is seriously like the best thing ever. People have personal favorites, but "Hard to Explain" is the Strokes songs.

......And from other artists
Elton John- Rocket Man or Have You Seen the Saucers
Arctic Monkeys- A Certain Romance or Suck It and See
The Libertines-Can't Stand Me Now
MGMT- Siberian Breaks or Time to Pretend
The Black Keys-Everlasting Light
Bob Dylan- Mr. Tambourine Man or Positively 4th Street
Simon and Garfunkel-America or Mrs. Robinson
The Rolling Stones- Dead Flowers or Waiting on a Friend
The Velvet Underground- All Tomorrow's Parties or Femme Fatale
The Eagles- Hotel California
