I dug them until all these bands like the hives and the vines came out sounding exactley like them, or at least tried to.  I had high hopes for this band but I've heard a few new songs and it sounds like they're trying to be the doors now........jesus, I feel what i'm sayings already played out.

While I think they're all over-rated, that's true... everyone compares these bands, but I think that's just because they're all just retro, but not even retro in the same genre.

what do you mean they sound nothing alike?  they all have the same simple, raw sound and think it's the 60's again.  And if you watch them live with no sound, i wouldn't be able to tell the strokes from the hives from the friggin' leaves.

The Strokes are fucking incredible...I was listening to them when they only had reased The Modern Age EP.  Then "Is This It" was released and they blew up.  Which I think is cool, because the majority of pop music sucks.  I seen them live and theyre simply amazing.  In fact my nick name is a Strokes song also known as Ze Newie.

You're insane.

First of all, The Hives do not think its the sixties, they think its the late eighties in the Bay Area.

The strokes think its the late 70's in New York.

The Vines think its a hybrid of the late 60's in Liverpool and the early 90's in Seattle.

These bands ARE overrated, but you have absolutely no ear for anything if you honestly think they sound alike.  I imagine what you're experiencing right about now is equivalent to what someone feels when they find out they're color blind.

As for "same, simple, raw sound"  the only part of that phrase that is entirely accurate for all three is "raw".   They sound raw, but each in their own entirely different way.  The strokes are the only ones you could honestly classify as simple.  

I imagine that either you really have no ear, or you're making your assumptions based on a couple radio singles (you should actually listen to the albums before you pass judgment).

I think it's the late 50's in Djibouti. Does that mean I'm wrong?

The New York rock scene is awesome.  Aside from The Strokes check out : The Mooney Suzuki, Interpol, The Walkmen, The Sexy Magazines, The Realistics, and French Kicks to name a few.....Oh yea The, fucking, Yeah Yeah Yeahs!  In my opinion these bands kick major ass.
