I have both of their albums, and I love them. I hear the next one is supposed to be even better (though doesn't everybody say that? ).

The Strokes to me are the equivalent of N'Sync. Both are prepackaged, glossy, fabricated, PRODUCT marketed to certain (albeit different) demographics.

A bunch of rich kids with no connection to each other thrown together by crafty A&R men for the almighty $. Sorry Strokes, I'll put on a Ramones record when I want to hear the genuine article. And after much debate, the Strokes have announced they are renaming their stillborn second record, to: That *Was* It!

you sir, know nothing. stop trying to be clever.

julian met nikolai when they were six at school and a few years later they met fab and nick at high school. they then hooked up with albert a year later. hardly manufactured is it? yes the ramones are clearly an influence but i think it's fair to say that they were an influence on SO many bands since their time at the top.

the stroke's are a great rock n roll band with catchy tunes. esp the first album

You beat me to it, 1step. They did all know each other. Anyways, most all bands get "set up" together in some way. We could say that U2 was a "product" too because Larry put them together, but it really doesnt hold up or matter.

I think Hawkfire was probably trying to refer to the fact that their families had connections in the music business. Even so, I personally dont see what's wrong with that. I read a study that up to about 70% of people in the United States get jobs (any job in any industry) based off of having contacts/knowing somone who either vouched for them or put in a good word for them. How someone gets their contract doesnt concern me regardless, it's what kind of music they make. I personally have enjoyed their music so far, fun stuff.
