Throwback Thursday: The Strokes – Reptilia
The Strokes dropped the second single from their album "Room On Fire" in 2004. It was nowhere near the hit that "12:51" was, but "Repitila" is one of the best songs I've ever personally heard.
"Reptilia" reached #19 on the Modern Rock Charts, made an appearance on "Guitar Hero 3" and currently has more than 67 million views on YouTube. It's never really been considered to be a true "hit" but it's been in a million things and NME placed it at #129 in the top 150 songs of the past 15 years, back in 2011.
It's almost perfect. The only thing I don't like about the song is the length. I'd love it to be about 45 to 60 seconds longer. Other than that, this song was the perfect soundtrack to my 2004.
