“12:51” is the first single from Room on Fire, the second album of American band The Strokes. It was released in the US on November 4, 2003. It was formerly known as Supernova.
Lead singer Julian Casablancas has said the song’s title is a reference to the habit of people looking at clocks before they have sex.
The music video, which was directed by Roman Coppola, is very heavily influenced by the Disney movie Tron.
Talk to me now, I'm older
Your friend told you 'cause I told her
Friday nights have been lonely
Change your plans and then phone me
