they are most certainly influenced by other bands (Velvet Underground, Television, The Cars, right?)

Especially early Cure, a la "Seventeen Seconds".

I think not. The Strokes look like that thanks to all the people who did that look decades ago. And regardless of that fact, I don't think they're a major influence in the look currently anyway. It's everywhere, but not thanks to them.

you give too much credit to the oldies.

Most people do not let their "influences" show so blatantly. And the rest of what you mentioned should be a standard thing. This is not exceptional.

Yeah, but a lot of bands and singers seem to get help, or let other do it completely. What's amazing is that Julian, alone (although, Albert did help him pen "Alone, Together") writes every note of music and lyric. He knows how to play all the instruments the band uses, and he's an incredible singer with an amazing stage presence. He is brilliant.

i can't think of one good band that has not been influenced by someone else. it's all about recycling and making it better.

yes, they're over-exposed and I'm kinda sick of them. But I still dance to their albums and they're undeniably cute!
