This whole stupid generic rock outfit that’s come out busy destroying the quality of the rest by diluting the market?

It started with the Strokes, Vines, Hives etc, and now it’s got out of hand.

Some of the pre-requisites ******* having ‘The’ in the name and shaggy hair.

Like the Jets. Who are they? I saw a picture and slotted them quite comfortable into that whole ‘style’.

Am I far off?

As I said, I only saw a picture and made an assumption. Thank you for clearing that up.

For a fun band they have…. Interesting hair?


And yes, too late, BUT BETTER LATE THEN NEVER!

....which is worse than Jet emulating late 70s-80s bands

the strokes aren't "art" i would call them "funtime goodtime rock" as much as anything else

except they have better hooks than Jet who are completely bland. The Strokes aren't original either but they don't have any blatant direct rip offs as bad as "Are You Gonna Be My Girl?"

I know what you mean.

I personally don't believe Jet have anything. They're annoying.

<font color=#007AAA face="courier new">My declining intrest in rock in general leads me to apoligize for bands that don't sound like this new generation of pussy metal that I'm hearing constantly.

The Strokes always seemed to me to be an MTV built band. Frat boys like them which doesn't help at all. So, whatever. I like Jet.</font>

Iggy Pop would be rolling in his grave if he was dead.

"Rock" is now pussy whiny rock.

"Punk" is now pussy whiny emo punk.

The whole world has gone gay. Well, except hip hop. That remains fairly clear of homoness.

The Strokes base all their songs on Tom Petty's "American Girl." Fucking lameass pieces of shit.

yeah, like one.

the strokes did more for music than any other band in the past 5 years. and not saying they are the greatest band either, but they moved this whole thing forward, and i can relate a lot more to the strokes then fred durst for whatever reason so i'm happy with it.

isn't it rumored or that julian had something that said interpol when the strokes performed on snl or something and that interpol was signed shortly thereafter? i dunno this story might not be true but i heard this somewhere.

someone already made the only important point earlier though. the strokes write really good songs. and jet just doesn't.

<font color=#007AAA face="courier new">Strokes fans like you really soil the band's reputation. If you had half a brain you'd admit they're recycling old stuff and not doing anything to move rock forward. If you would just admit that they're merely funtime goodtime rock and roll and nothing more it would be ok, but you act like they're catalysts for a new movement in rock and roll.

I mean really, how blind are you?</font>

The only thing the Strokes moved foward was a bunch of shittier bands. That said, they're probably still going to be making good music after this whole thing blows over.

I can't even imagine putting Jet on the same level as the Strokes. It's ridiculous.

Don't forget, The All-American Rejects are *******d in this cliche.

I could ask about these punk bands and/or "punk" rock chicks from Canada, but rather not.

yeah now pseudo-gothica nu metal hype is going the way of early nineties grunge..this annoying emo/punk hybrid beast is currently roaming our fallen nation--with its ashton kutcher hair and multi colored armbands fresh from Hot Topic...dont be afraid to admit, that you are frightened too
