The Strokes are a five-member indie NYC rock band that was born in 1998. They have five full albums and one EP, and “Reptilia” is the second single off their second album, Room on Fire. The song released in February of 2004, and in October 2011, New Music Express dubbed it 129 on their “150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years” list. It’s one of their most popular songs even though it didn’t see the best achievement. In fact, it’s so admired that some years later, another five-member NYC band, Punch Brothers, had to cover it.
