21 Taken for a Fool

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.

Best strokes song for far!

"Monday, Tuesday is my weekend! "

22 Alone, Together

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 (:!

23 Vision of Division

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 song

This has to be their best song, even beats Reptila and Had to Explain.

24 Ize of the World

The words are absolutely brilliant. The things that Julian sings really make you think. The way that the music builds up into the chorus and the delivery from all parts of the band puts it over the top. Best Strokes song hands down.

Disclaimer, The Strokes are my favorite. I love music in general, though, and have been to at least 25 concerts in my life. That being said, this song blew me away more live than any song I've ever heard live, period. Absolutely killer buildup to the very end (which blew up part of my left lobe) only to end abruptly. Amazing.

Despite it not being instantly catchy as their more pop-friendly songs, this one grows on you. Really nice guitars and dynamic drums. The chorus makes this song peak. The contrast between the powerful and loud instrumentation, and Julian's sad and hopeless singing and then a powerful scream like he burst into a tantrum. Brilliant.

Absolutely killer lyrics with a nice guitar riff best strokes song by far

25 One Way Trigger

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 others

26 Razorblade

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.

Underrated song..come on guys

27 Meet Me In the Bathroom

Maybe not their best but definitely one of, should be in top 5 at least

28 Modern Girls and Old Fashioned Men

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

29 Life is Simple in the Moonlight

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.

Great chorus, I can listen to this song for the rest of my life

That good good dank dank

D: The best Strokes song for me D:

30 Welcome to Japan

Absolutely wicked lyrics and amazing instrumental work

One of the best songs from Comedown Machine!

The modulation and drive is incredible

Um this is such a welcoming song how can anyone hate it it made me feel proud to dirve a lotus

32 I'll Try Anything Once

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.

33 All the Time

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.

34 I Can't Win

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!

Move this up, people.

35 Call It Fate, Call It Karma

Can I waste all your time here on the sidewalk, can I stand in your light just for a while, I waited around-oh no, I made up more time watching you... WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU

It is so sweet! So soft, it really stands out from the rest.

Second favourite Strokes song ever

Um is it fate or is it karma that this song is so low on the list?

36 Slow Animals

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.

37 Oblivius Oblivius

The best track on Future Present Past, hands down.

A really good tune, belongs into the list.

Great guitar harmony. I love it. - ehinan

A nice present - in two ways.

38 Red Light

The guitar-work in this song is too genius to put this at 38. - PeterG28

Best song of the worst/second worst album

This song is just so sweet, like 'all the girls could never make me love them the way I love you' man that is sweet af

39 You Talk Way Too Much
40 Two Kinds of Happiness

Awesome lyrics... This song always cheers me up. Hard to believe its at number 33!

How the hell can this song be so low down in the list?! Come on guys this should be in the top 10 for sure I like it more than reptillia anyday and is wayy better than heart in a cage
