How Legends Are Made

From small nightclubs to soldout stadium shows and garage jamming sessions to record deals and multi-million sales; these classic rock artists had to start somewhere. The world was ready for an introduction and they gave people the best they had to offer:

Their debut album had charisma. And it must be duly noted that the band wanted a simple rock sound which is why there weren’t significant enhancements during recording. So what did they achieve? Pure rock ‘n roll. And they made this genre exciting once more. In just a year, The Strokes went from small gigs to being on the cover of glossy magazines and the talk of the town in the rock music scene. The songs are tightly constructed and seemed to be on a frenetic pace. But they didn’t disappoint us one bit. Of course, it was a commercial success and the reviews they received were generally positive. According to Heather Phares from AllMusic, “Granted, their high-fashion appeal and faultless influences … have ‘critics’ darlings’ written all over them. But like the similarly lauded Elastica and Supergrass before them, the Strokes don’t rehash the sounds that inspire them—they remake them in their own image.”
