I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member...
Tie breaking vote: Modest Mouse
their both really good bands
Modest Mouse should have stopped at Good News, but other than that they are my buddies for life. Listened to Lonsesome Crwded West this morning, actually.
1 Coachella before I got sober, 7 since. I support both versions. If you wanna do the sober version, roll with us:

Hard decision. The Strokes
The Poll section of the board really needs to be eliminated.
modest mouse, definitely. and i actually like the strokes. but issac brock is amazing.
I'll take Brock while tipsy over Casablancas while sober anyday.
Modest mouse for the win! Specially a drunken Isaac, he does a lot more crowd participation that way.... Like spiting and name calling at his fans. I love them!
I think his best drunken tour was for Good News. What a shit show that was! <3
I love them both but The Strokes just feel so good.Don't ask me why, sentimental value as well I guess.
I choose Modest Mouse but really enjoyed the Strokes songs by Julian last Coachella. Maybe just saw thw Strokes too many times.

Since you brought up Julian I have to add. I LOVE JULIAN CASABLANCAS.
Modest Mouse, no contest... lyrically brilliant.
depends if we're talking overall, recent, or live perfomance. Much as I love the stroke their set at the Weenie Roast was very inactive...they played but they just sorta sat there, wasn't much energy. Good sound...but eh...could use some more energy.
