Is This It is the debut album by the American band The Strokes, released in 2001. The Strokes were the first band to break into the mainstream as part of the turn-of-the-millennium trend. Hyped by the music press for their melodic pop-influenced garage rock sound on both sides of the Atlantic, The Strokes’ auspicious debut garnered them critical and popular attention. Moreover, Is This It’s more famous songs “The Modern Age”, “Last Nite”, “Hard to Explain” and “Someday” won the band much respect and helped the album reach number two in the United Kingdom and number thirty-three in the United States. This album is featured in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
