With all the news surrounding the certain imminence of brand spankin' new song from The Strokes dubbed "All the Time," well, it kind of got us thinking...
If it weren't for this...
Do you think bands like The Killers, The Postelles, LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture, Vampire Weekend, TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Bravery, Interpol, Vivian Girls, Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah, Tokyo Police Club, Arctic Monkeys, The Walkmen, !!!, Friendly Fires, Hot Hot Heat, Franz Ferdinand, Liars, The Kills, Black Keys, French Kicks, Peter Bjorn and John, Spoon, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead, Love is Laughter, Phantom Planet, The Star Spangles, The Black Lips, The Libertines, Born Ruffians, Ted Leo, Cults, Kings of Leon, We Are Scientists, The Vines, The Hives, Kaiser Chiefs, Editors, MGMT, The Fratellis, The Shins, Jet, The Stills, Wolfmother, Snow Patrol, Stellastar, Ambulance LTD, Foals, OK Go!, Cage the Elephant, Harlem Shakes, The Ting Tings, Young the Giant, The Futureheads, White Lies, Wolf Parade, Queens of the Stone Age, The Dead Weather, Adam Greene, The Gossip, Metric, The Raveonettes, The Cold War Kids, The Decemberists, The Von Bondies, Hot Chip, annnnnnnd Chromeo would ever have been around?
OK, a good batch of 'em would, but let's face it. Julian, Albert, Nikolai, Fabrizio, and Nick have had a pretty serious impact on the modern music we love. So we're excited and optmistic, provided the band manage to avoid another Angles like mishap.
