11. Is This It? - The Strokes

Another great fad band, and it's too bad that that's all they are was a mere rock fad in the early aughts.

In an earlier post, I recalled the day about this album. Every now and then a band comes out that makes you feel so cool for listening to them, and they were one of those bands. They were too cool to the point they couldn't handle being perceived as "the cool band" and all went there separate ways.

Toast trying to cover, "Is This It?" is probably one of the greatest failed experiments of it's life. It was my suggestion too, but Toast covering a relevant song around the same time it came out wasn't going to happen, unless it was Yoshiimi ...
