Just found that myself. Seems like even Cult isn’t quite sure of all the lyrics. 😀

Did anyone else get an email saying their “Future, Present, Past” 10″ was back ordered? And has anyone gotten their download code in their email yet?

The Strokes official web site directed me to this “new” PopMarket site for their merchandise. For the next 10 hours, all 5 LPs are on sale for $16.99, free shipping (in the U.S.)

@gS –

“Sets by The Strokes, Robyn, The Killers, Miguel, Death Cab For Cutie and Vince Staples are confirmed to stream.”

Can someone share a link for tonight’s Governors Ball performance? I thought I read it’ll be streamed. Video is so rad by the way.

No, haven’t gotten anything, but last night there was a new banner on the LP order page that says they have placed additional orders due to the high demand. And once again, if you tried to order anything it wouldn’t work. (“Your cart is empty.”) It didn’t even occur to me I would get the code by e-mail — I assumed it would come with the physical package. Of course, if all you bought was the download, seems you should get that right away. (BTW, the other stuff I ordered came really fast. I think they charge too much for shipping, but they must send things with 2-day delivery or something.)

What’s up with the uncertainty on the lyrics? Is it not an official video? I guess JC prefers the ambiguity.

I thought that the second verse starts: “We’re the ones who want to fight, even on Sundays” as a reference to American culture, war, NFL. Makes more sense than wanting to watch some fight on a Sunday (fights are usually on Saturday anyway).

The Strokes´ set is going to be livestreamed tonight at 21:15 (which obviously means 21:30) on Viceland

Viceland content is usually geo-blocked for some places outside the US, so you should try it before to see if it works for you. If it doesn´t, Proxmate for Chrome normally works for me for streaming blocked content, but I can´t assure this is the case.

I spoke too soon — I just got the download this morning.

11 Joseph A June 3, 2016 at 11:16 am

I think Viceland is only streaming it on actual TV

They seem happy, excited, very energic.

25 Ted June 3, 2016 at 1:11 pm

Something wrong with posting comments ! Eric ?!

26 LeavingIt June 3, 2016 at 5:49 pm

Sooo… the video says it’s been streaming for 5 hours, and it says it’s live, but all I’m getting is a pulsing YouTube logo.

27 JDStrokes June 3, 2016 at 5:54 pm


Same here :'(

29 Drag Queen June 3, 2016 at 6:44 pm

soma again, cool

It said it would stream until 9:00 PM, and I tuned in about 10-15 minutes prior. They must have ended early. I ASSUMED when they said The Strokes would be streamed, that it would be ON-LINE. But what I am realizing, with horror, is that the rest of the night will be on TV, not on-line. LiveNation has been dependable in the past for streaming shows on-line — looks like this time they’re going through this Viceland TV channel. Which sucks, because I don’t have TV. There goes my Friday night. (It’s been a tough week. I was looking forward to kicking back with this. I already have a nice buzz going in preparation.)

31 Mateja June 3, 2016 at 6:51 pm


check the periscope!

32 Xcrw June 3, 2016 at 7:30 pm

Omg, hearing Clampdown live again makes it totally worth it being awake for this at 04:30 am.

33 LillySu June 3, 2016 at 7:52 pm

Dear god, what a show!!! I don’t want them to stop!!!

34 Mikey June 3, 2016 at 8:42 pm

Just got back… RED LIGHT!!!! And 20 fucking songs!!!

35 gS June 3, 2016 at 8:44 pm

Red Light! One of their very best!

36 Bobbyc June 3, 2016 at 9:14 pm
