I always thought it was quite the feat for Interpol that at one point they had a brilliant drummer AND Dave Pajo and still managed to bore the shit out of me.

the handful of interpol live boots i've heard haven't been that great (part of the obvious downfall of style over substance maybe) but totbl & antics definitely hold up for me

it just was way overhyped at release time, we all bought it and then realized we would never really listen to it in any following years

no they weren't

mtv, nme, etc. might've tried to co-opt them since they were a "cool new thing" that wasn't nu-metal or whatever, but everyone always focuses on that before the actual band or music. every time. i might prefer interpol, but still, on an individual song basis, the strokes could be pretty great

Strokes were like an LA studio band crammed into an NYC garage rock body in all the best and worst ways.

the reason a mediocre band like the strokes were the big new thing was lots of rotation on mtv in like 2002

thats how it felt to me.

mtv & co might have been desperate for an alternative to their main rotation of christina, limp bizkit, etc. & overcompensated a bit, but i remember 'em mostly as one group out of the whole retro-ish hives, vines, rooney, etc. round of bands that i found worth listening to. i still think they hold up on a song-by-song (found the albums hard to get through) basis. You Only Live Once is perfect

I've grown to hate the The Strokes just from every young musician I know listing them as their influence as if they weren't just a revival band with like 3 good songs

interpol's third album was kind of a chore to listen to but antics is solid, the s/t has some stand-outs & totbl is just a blast thru & thru

still haven't gotten to el pintor

This thread probably wouldn't be interesting if I just listed all of the shitty Myspace-core bands I liked as a teenager, so I'll try to think of more recent stuff that I used to like but like no longer.

Umm... I guess I liked Cage the Elephant for all of two weeks after seeing them live and enjoying them, and then I realized that I actually don't like them all that much.

This. So this.

Like the monkees, but with distortion and tighter clothes.

They're a bunch of rich private school brats who could have done anything they wanted with their lives, and chose to pretend to be punk rockers and make their money that way.

All's fair in love and war but let's be honest, the music itself is fucking terrible
