I didn’t have access to a computer this weekend because I had to go to San Francisco to buy this. So these are late and I apologize.

You can watch the show’s interview with Julian here.

some of u need to quit whining about Julian “messing up” the lyrics. I can only imagine how boring it must get for him to sing the same thing over and over again. I think it’s refreshing that he changes is up.

the strokes are weak today.. get used to it and dont be a ignorant fanboy

i’m sorry, but this just isnt good music, or good song writing, or even good performing.

I predict this is their last studio album.

12 Mot May 24, 2011 at 8:44 am

totally aggree. Dont get me wrong. i love their first 3 albums and performances.. but its over…

13 AunomdelaFrance May 24, 2011 at 10:22 am

Ernest, nope, she’s a french actress.

I honestly dont know what some of you are expecting from these guys! They are performing the same way that they always have yet now most of you seem to hate on it. This was a was performance, even reptilia when he screwed up after the solo. Most performers can’t come back from that kinda mess up. These guys are still rock n’ roll but if you aren’t digging it anymore its cool, no one is telling you to love them.

the pitchfork hype machine is telling these people that this isn’t good, when in reality it’s top class guitar-play and creativity

16 sheamus May 24, 2011 at 5:13 pm

Im a huge fan of the strokes and everything was good minus the opening line of ucod and the shituation that went down after the solo in reptillia. but lets be real, there was nothing cool about the 8 second stutter. “please dont slow me down..duh uh.. this room is on fir- shes fixing her hair!” but good recovery for sure though.

Honestly the strokes are steppin it up and my fav performances are when Julian changes the lyrics thats memorable. Why wud you want the same old thing over and over. Julian makes it dope with stuff like calm down and repeat yourself or when he changes it up. Stop hatin.. I thought they wud start performing worse cus angles was sub par but I really love their new shows.

18 coconut May 24, 2011 at 8:02 pm

FIRST OF ALL we still haven’t seen 3 songs from angles live. and when they come, they will blow us all away!

19 woon May 25, 2011 at 1:03 pm

jesus that was sooo embarasing, jules letting the boys down (again), and no its nt like he changed the lyrics, he just forgot,n eeds to qit smoking pot and get back to being drunk.

he is in a band as a job, thats hw he makes a living, all he has to do is remember about 20 songs that he wrote, is that too much to ask?

20 Brent May 26, 2011 at 5:30 am

I’m buying Jules a teleprompter for his birthday.

21 woon May 26, 2011 at 12:09 pm

oh god jut watching the other videos, reptillia may be embarasig, but jesus 1st line of UcOD
haha and then te rest of he song is ust cluttered with mistakes too

still strugglig with taken for a fool too
lyric and hitting the notes

really looks like hes lacking confidence, sad to see, somebody get that boy a 4loko
