Replies for this Forum Topic

they just...their music has this magical quality. no matter what you're feeling, there is always a strokes song that will make it better and help you get through it. julian's voice can make all the bad things go away:) the music itself is fantastic, and so are the lyrics. you just HAVE to love this band. they are perfection.

oh, and not to mention the fact that julian is flipping gorgeous. <3

they're not and this new forum sucks the dick of a fat man. Just posting here is the biggest pain-in-the-ass EVER! The LP blows. Their management sucks...they should live off their trust funds and produce music for artists to make a buck to feed the kids.

Epic Bumped my 3 year old thread because i can [;

Honestly, their music has been the soundtrack to my life for the past few years.

It's the most simple things. What you'd expect from a band called the Strokes, a bunch of staccato rhythms with some amazing melodies heaped on top. And Jules doesn't always have the greatest range in his singing voice, but when he sings you can tell it's from the heart, and his lyrics have a definite style to them. Style wise they skirt so many lines. They're not too pop, not quite punk, not quite alternative or indie. They're just playing to put out good music, and it shows.

If I ever started a band I would hope to sound half as good as them.

alot of people replied to my topic.

hahahahahahahaha.
Special indeed.

Well, I can't speak for everyone but whenever I listen to The Strokes' music, it's almost like I get transported into another world. Their music makes me really happy. Like if something bad happens, The Strokes really do make it better. That sounds corny but it's true.
Some lyrics are just so..... amazing. Everything is just perfect.

They are cute, have great lyrics, and u can never get tired of them...... Julians voice goes great with the music that is playing......

hm... I like The Strokes because there music so catchy, and perfect in every way possible. Their music instrumentally is great, and Julians voice adds nicely to it.

1. They brought something new to the table.
2. They COMPLETELY changed my outlook on music.
3. When I saw them live, I actually wanted to cry. The hair on the back of my neck stood on end.
4. Julian Casablancas is a musical genius.

jp bowersock.

Musically, they are smart and layered and you can tell they all work hard to make it *good*. To listen to it makes you glad to be alive.

As for the guys personally, they do seem humble and easygoing. I feel like I can relate to them, maybe because I was born in the same year as Julian and Nikolai. So I can't feel too old because they're the same damn age - thank you, men!

i love them because they arr the perfect band
I can listen to them all day long without getting tired, i love everything about them, their music, their lyrics, their style

they can make me dance, laugh, cry, they are just perfect! they have a song for every moment of my life

they are amazing,i havent gotten tired of one song even from the day is this it came out, they are unique no other band came compete with them, they( julian) is absolutly sexy and has such an amazing voice it makes me cry,the sound all the instramants make with julian singing is fuckin awesome, they seem like funny, nice, unselfish(non stuck up) ppl, and i love them dearly <333[attachment=0]21195619.jpg[/attachment]

There music is not fake or anything. Julian's voice is so cool too. And everyone in the band is great. All I do is listen to The Strokes because they are the best ever. The End

they are my favorite band because they care desprately about what they do and they are best friends, and i wish i was just like them. i love their music, i know every single lyric to every single song, but if they were shitty people i wouldnt like them as much as i do. watching in transit, seeing them on the internet or on tv, reading their interviews, it becomes evident that they all care about each other and are extremely good friends. they also have this incredible sense of what its like to be young, in love, or messed up. and everyone can identify with those this one way or another. i'm 15 and live in LA, and theyre in their late 20s and grew up in new york, and yet i always get exactly what theyre talking about. each one of their songs gives me a certain feeling that i cant articulate really, but i have a feeling thats vaguely the same feeling everyone gets when they listen to them. nostalgia...happiness...complete shittiness, resentment, all in one. nothing i really say will do justice to their music, but if you listen to it you understand. as for them as people, theyre hilarious. i love them to death, and i love how each one of them has a specific role in the band and it isnt just julian as the lead singer and everyone else is whatshisname. theyre all in it together, like the beatles. and i think people identify with them and like them for that. which is part of the reason why, if they broke up because they didnt like each other anymore, it would kill me. and it definitely doesnt hurt that every single member is hot either haha.

"in many ways, theyll miss the good old days
someday, someday
yeah it hurts to say, but i want you to stay
sometimes, sometimes
when we was young, oh man did we have fun
always, always
promises, they break before theyre made
sometimes, sometimes.
Oh mya says im lacking in depth
said i will try my best
you say you want to stand by my side
darlin your heads not right
because alone we stand, together we fall apart
yeah i think ill be alright
im working so i wont have to try to hard
tables they turn sometimes
oh someday
i aint wastin no more time"

i really dont know how else to explain it...i feel like i know them but not in a stalker way. more in a like, i can make fun of all of you while i watch you eat pizza and drink beer, but i will never be as effortlessly cool as you, not that you give a shit, i just want to be around you to soak up everything i want to aspire to be kind of way. i would quite literally do anything to meet them, not to nescessarily talk to them, but to just sit there and be in awe.

[quote="FIOE8"]I love the strokes because their easy to listen to and they're music doesn't have an agenda or a field to work with it's just a
flavor with an everlasting flavor. Let me put it this way! it's like you knew these guys your entire life but your gonna have to save the compliments cause they really don't care.

Like A Son!
I Adored You Like A Son!

Silly Julian...

:D :lol: :D :lol: :D :lol: :D :lol: :D :lol:

I love all their songs so muchh... never had that happen for me with any band/artist before.
They make me feel so good inside and like I can do anything. and get better the more you listen to them, as compared to other songs which get worse when constantly repeated.
I can connect songs with emotions and moments in my life that arent even like the lyrics. now thats deep.
I love every member of the band, it would be soo different if even one left.
THEY'RE MAD SEXY!

They're just really awesome and make the best music in the world and thats not even a friggen exaggeration. The day the 4th album comes out I'm charging to the nearest music store; not an exaggeration either. And this is coming from a girl whos never even bought CDs before til she heard this band! I MUST SEE THEM ON TOUR TOOOO! <3 somehow.. if 14 year olds are allowed? lol

they make me pick a guitar and play!
they make me happy!
they are most talent persons i ever see!
they are great live!!

why the strokes are special to me:

1. their music and lyrics make something click in my brain. even though the lyrics are often pretty vague, i feel like i understand without thinking of a specific moment that makes me relate to the song. i don't know, it's hard to explain (no pun intended).
2. i love the way the guitar parts work off of each other.
3. most of their songs seem to be put together so naturally. at their best, the lyrics are effortlessly poetic, witty, dirty, or bittersweet. the instruments meld together nicely while retaining their own identities.
4. julian, nikolai, fabrizio, albert, and nick seem like decent people.
5. and, let's be honest: they're freakin' hot.

^oh yes he did

[b]"I just wanted to write music that could touch people," [/b]-Julian Casablancas.

[b]BECAUSE I HAVE THIS HUGE URGE OF WITNESSING THE AWESOMENESS LIVE BEFORE I DIE[/b]

i love the strokes because they're so great. make me want to hear them again and again. and always made a great composition of their music. they were perfect for each other!!
