Is.this.it??

Can't you see I'm trying?
I don't even like it.
Amazing song. Love hard to Hard To Explain and Modern Age from this album.
Not bad, and the tone of the vocalist really connects to the tone and rhythm of the instruments.
The bass in this song is amazing
Dude this song is awesome :)
Love this song so much
Bass line is so good in this song
No one is original. Everyone just takes something already in existence and uses it in a different way.
I wish this had the lyrics
JUST OPEN UP THE APARTMENT DOOR please honey
My baby Julian Casablancas never disappoints :'D
Hear this....when I was 8 yrs old I.heard this song, I fell in love with it, so I stole my father's cd, but it got scratch bad so I tried to find this song....and thanks to pandora, ive found the song of my life.

I just noticed until now, that I listened carefully to each instrument and I've gotta say, sick bass Nicolai made this song 100 times better:D
i just lied to get to your apartment ~
Yee

Lyrics remind me of the movie/book The Talented Mr. Ripley
I wish I could play the bass just to play this song
People kill me with original vs. unoriginal argument..
458230595
possibly the best bass line ever?
Rock revival was the best thing to happen in the 00's
Def a sick bass-line!
love it
the strokes are NOT unoriginal they are part of rock rival, while other rock bands were poppy like Good Charolete and trying to hard to be mainstream (MTV-ish). they also infuenced bands like Kings of Leon and The Arctic Monkeys. SO YEAH.
i love it
Strokes are usually pretty unoriginal but I got to give them credit for the sick bass line on this one.

The only Strokes song I have found I like
this is one of their best songs :)
Nirvana were a Pixies ripoff. They were hailed as genius. Everyone takes from everyone else.

I had the pure WIN of the bass line pointed out to me on a boyscout trip. I never really paid attention to it despite how much I like the song.
Is this meant to be a Pixies quote?

Pixies rip-off
nilla_choco
I love this song, love the band too. So laid back, and they're really good live, especially the singer.
QUAINT
nawoodward
eh
Pixies rip-off?
Three albums later, I can answer, with confidence, "no". :D
BASS LINE HOOKS YOU INTO THE GROOVE
