It may not seem like it's been that long, but The Strokes have been releasing albums for over a decade now (moment of silence for those reflecting on how they're as old as balls now). Since the release of their critically-acclaimed debut, Is This It, in 2001, the New York band has been bridging the coarse, unpolished sound of the garage band with the rock 'n roll aesthetic for some of the most accessible, guilt-free rock around.
Four albums, a lengthy hiatus, and some solo projects later, The Strokes are back again with their fifth studio LP, Comedown Machine. As the dynamic of the band members has evolved over the years, so has their approach to music. But from the sound of their forthcoming album, officially out today, that isn't necessarily a negative thing. To pay tribute to the band's imminent comeback, we're counting down the 15 best songs by The Strokes.Click to start the list
