The NYC music scene in the late 90s and early aughts -- with such acts as Interpol, Strokes, YYYs, The Rapture, TV on the Radio, The Walkmen, etc. -- was the epicenter for the burgeoning indie rock scene integrally intertwined with the post-punk revival generally. Arguably the two best bands to emerge from the NYC indie rock scene were the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Strokes.

So who ya got?

The Strokes -- 12:51

I loved the first Strokes record, so I'll give it to them on that alone...

I think The YYYs are good too...

You realize this makes no sense, right? Since you don't know what landslide means, see the below definition for clarification.


land·slide
/'lan(d)?slid/
Noun
An overwhelming majority of votes for one party in an election: "winning the election by a landslide"

They might. But when you wrote "Strokes in a landslide", I have a hunch you didn't mean "I am voting for The Strokes; moreover, I predict that the vast majority of other posters will also vote for The Strokes."

I'm actually not, I just felt the use of profanity was best suited to express how dumb I thought that was and my attempt to derail that argument... Seems to have worked...

favorite thing on this board. everyone has differing opinions.

i'm a big strokes fan, but i saw them live at Jazz Fest a few years back, and I was pretty disappointed.
