It had been a long time since I had had to even think about The Strokes. But there they were, on this past weekend's Saturday Nite Live (and might I add, that Miley Cyrus was wonderful and actually can act!). Billy Ray... our little girl has grown up.
The previous time I was exposed to these hipster cumwads was at Little Steven's 2004 Underground Garagefest, in which they opened for The Stooges and proceeded to disgust most of the 10,000 plus people who were trapped on Randall's Island with them. Perhaps it was because I spent most of the program playing Ramones songs on my bass, but the second The Strokes, in their sunglassed glory, appeared, I immediately wanted to take my bass and smash it thru the television. I can't stand smug little New York muthafuckers, and The Strokes exemplify everything I hate (and so do you) about New York bands. And, as I have spent my entire (up to now) life in eN whY Cee, I've seen my share of these bands. Additionally, as an added bonus, both of the songs they played absolutely sucked.
I would like to take a sardine can opener and start peeling the lead singer's skin off'; starting from his hipster haircut lined skull down to his knees. I can only pray that these fuckers catch ebola from their model girlfriends.
Anyway, as previously mentioned, I have about 25 Ramones songs to master. And ya know what? They're not all three chords!
