The Strokes Play ‘You’re So Right’ On ‘Jimmy Fallon’

by Eric Van Dril · 74 comments

The Strokes played “You’re So Right”, a song which has quickly become one of their strongest live tracks, on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this morning.

After watching the performance I have to say that YSR has quickly become one of my favorite tracks on Angles. It seemed too simple when I first heard it, aside from Nick’s guitar parts and backing vocals, but as we’ve repeatedly with The Strokes, simplicity translates very well to the live setting.

So, in my eyes, I’m ready to declare YSR on Fallon one of the best live videos I’ve seen thus far from the band’s support of Angles. What do you think?

I would say take it or leave it letterman trumped someday. Aside from julian tripping over it was a perfect performance.

I think Take it or Leave it and Someday were equally great. Take it or Leave it was just more intense, but Julian’s vocals on Someday are spectacular, so strong.

I really love the song and the performance, but really……………Nick’s voice sucks. Horrible.

Sorry to be redundant, but is anyone familiar with the shipping on J.C’s website? I want to get a shirt but it says USPS in unavailable in my area, and UPS is a retarded price. I tried contacting the website people too, but even that won’t work. (literally)

Those who don’t like this song and keep inaccurately comparing it to Radiohead have apparently never listened to the Cars ‘Panorama’, structurally from which it borrows heavily

take it or leave it on letterman wins for me


there’s more than one level of comparison that can be made. structurally, sure, it’s similar to panorama. but radiohead probably get brought up because of their sometimes divisive experimental tendencies, something that is apparent in YSR. and this is why i don’t like it: if it was meant to be the more experimental track, you hear so much of it in panorama anyway. if it wasn’t, the melody, if you can call it one, is the most inaccessible of all the strokes catalogue.

@S — Oh, cool. I’d love to post it. My email is

17 AC April 1, 2011 at 8:02 am

Hey Eric this is kind of random, but could you possibly make the website so that when someone clicks a link, it automatically opens in another tab? If not that’s okay 🙂

18 Eric Van Dril April 1, 2011 at 8:36 am

@AC — I have no idea how to do that, but if you just right click on the links the option to open in a new tab should come up.

@AunomdelaFrance are you high?

20 Rick April 1, 2011 at 10:38 am

April fools.

21 Other Maria April 1, 2011 at 1:05 pm

Hahahaha i actually thought holy shit whaaat??? and checked their website. I know you love that song but thank god!! One question will there be any live tweeting about the msg show for those of us who sadly won’t be there? I got the impression from one of the strokes, (maybe nikolai said it?) that they’d be lengthening their set for the show. Hope it’s amazing for anyone going and feel free to post as many details as you can remember 😉

22 Other Maria April 1, 2011 at 1:11 pm

Is the triple j article an interview??? Is it with nikolai? It’s so crazy that he’s pretty much become the spokesman for the band!
