Top Ten The Strokes Songsbiscuits
The Contenders: Page 2XW
What's wrong with this messed up list?!
Machu Picchu, Taken For A Fool, Take it oe leave it, Trying your luck... All these song should be in the top ten!
I love this song by the way...
Don't know if it's the best but it's the most catchy of the strokes just after last nite. For that it deserves to be in the top 5: reptilia, yolo, someday, last nite, machu pichu and (ups they just have so many great songs) taken for a fool. :P The strokes are the best band on planet earth.
For me one of the bests of this amazing group
The lead guitar is so catchy!

In my opinion, their most intense song. The bridge on this song is so ridiculously full of energy it's amazing.
How did this not rank in the top ten?!? This has got to be my second favorite song of all time from the strokes (:!
This song really helps me in times of stress and need. I can definitely relate to it. Whenever life seems to be falling apart, I just have to put on a smile (whether it be fake or real) and say that everything is under control, even though I know that it's out of control. This song channels my feelings in a brilliant way that I never could. Have you ever felt like a song was written just for you? I feel like this one is mine.
I was about to vote for Someday, 12:51 or Reptilia, but Under Control surely should be higher than 20! The stop-and-start structure of the song, the echoing drums just before the verse, the mellow and sweet solo, and the softly sung lyrics... it's just the perfect rock ballad. Definitely one of Strokes' finest moments and heavily underrated.
Some songs you can hear, and they sound really great. This is not that. I feel this song with all five senses. When I hear it, I just take a minute to absorb every word. Julian Casablancas has a voice that takes me to another place, and a very good place, too.
This is one of the Strokes' most underrated songs. The mixture of chords and vocals make this song so catchy; and do you know anyone that can sing that low?V6 Comments
This is my song of the day, absolute perfection. Julian belting his heart out is amazing first and for most. The song brings a unique chorus pattern even for a band that already paces themselves so uniquely. Just an all around great song.
Their latest song but its up there with some of their best.
How is this song so low! Top 10 at least.
I can't explain why I love this song above the othersV2 Comments
The guitar in this song is simply amazing. How is this not higher. The vocals and lyrics are also spot on.
How can this be so low? It's a bloody masterpiece!
Phenominal! Come on, this is rated so low! So catchy, very underrated song.V1 Comment
Incredible single. It is such an underrated song. The mix of Regina Spektor's voice with Julian's makes an amazing harmony, absolutely amazing song with powerful meaning.
Love it, plus, the combo of girl and guy is nice, none of their other songs have that, but honestly I love almost all of their songs, tough choice
Thanks to this one I am a huge regina fan
I love the part when he yells. this and the modern age were my favorite part of the album - guest1
There's just something about this that's upbeat and sounds
Great lyrics and I love the guitar solo part too. Its amazing! This song must be in the top 10. My fave song in Angles.V4 Comments
A very good song with a nice and fast flow. A faster flow (without being Punk or Metal) than a lot of their other songs have. Although all Strokes songs are good, too.
A song that belongs in the top 10. Not overproduced - not too much reduced. Perfect.
Not my favorite song from The Strokes but I want it to move up on the list.
I like the lightness of the song, nice.V2 Comments
This song is beautiful, and is the original of You Only Live Once. Its interesting to hear how they are ultimately the same song, but are the polar opposites of each other.
Oh my, favourite song, I don't even care that's it's a demo. Nice and slow. The lyrics open you're eyes.
This song is simply beautiful live
62? What the F! Not enough true fans.V3 Comments
My favourite song from comedown machine. Simply awesome.
Oh my goodness, this song should be so much higher. Best song off Comedown Machine. And the chorus is so infectious. Babehh!
I know all the strokes songs and this one remains my favourite. The guitar sounds like its crying in the solo. Julian puts so much emotion into his voice
The best New York groove. All the parts are just so smooth. Such a cool song!V1 Comment
This is the greatest song ever.. It is wonderful during live performance.. I love all about this song sebu vida
How is this song not rated farther up the list, the guitar solo in it is totally awesome. One of the best songs on first impressions of earth which in my opinion is the strokes most underrated album
With a great lyrics and riff, comes. Great songV1 Comment
The best track on Future Present Past, hands down.
A really good tune, belongs into the list.V2 Comments
Are you kidding me? Best strokes song. Reptilia who? Seriously. The riff, lyrics, solo, Julian's singing, everything! Definitely in top 3
Such a good song, the electric vibe is just right
I think Comedown Machine needs a revisit from everyone, it seems to be entirely underrated.
The best song of comedown machineV1 Comment
Not a fangirl, a guy here actually, and I love this song. Julian is the father of a baby girl now, and understands the things that will come along as she gets older. This is the perfect song to describe every father who wondered, and were cautious about their little girl. Staying up late till their baby came home, this song is just the perfect description. I truly like their new album.
