i take back calling it "unreleased" - i meant "unreleased by the strokes" (as far as i know). but it definitely appears to be the same song that is on the strokes website. maybe the strokes were doing a cover, too ??

I'm a Strokes fan, so yes I see similarities, but I don't think it's them.

ok, I hope someone could find the song, I'll go iTunes-ing for Joy Division.

Oh - I thought you were joking (?).
But 1-2 nights ago I mentioned "Love Will Tear Us Apart" as a similar sound - or it could be like something else.

o. m. g.

what if they were just randomly using a song (there were no vocals in that version...so it could be a cover....) for the background music to their video?
and....U2 was just coincidentally jamming?

I DONT KNOWW AAAHHHH!!

I remember that, I kind of agreed with that observation too, but I'm not kidding about the Joy Division thing either.

At this point it can be anything.

the song is playing in the background and it's definitely the same song, but it doesnt say on the website that The Strokes wrote it, and why would U2 have an unreleased Strokes song

this is all weird. I am thinking it must be some other song, and U2 were covering it, or Bono was singing over it, or something. I don't think it's a Strokes song OR a U2 song. but Bono is definitely the one singing in the beach clip.

does this mean I have to change my sig?? i still like the song, whoever wrote it

(2) The Strokes covered an unreleased U2 song.
