Julian Casablancas has an undoubtable talent for writing lyrics on life, love, sex and “Barely Legal” girls in New York City and it all started on Is This It, the debut album from the American indie band The Strokes. In 2001, the modern rock n' roll guitars of “Last Nite,” the lyrical rant on “The Modern Age,” and the nostaglic, break-up “Someday” single contributed to the resurgence of skinny jeans, guitars, and a very significant change in mainstream music at the time.
