The Strokes are an American rock band, consisting of Kon, that was formed in 1999 and rose to fame in the early 2000s as a leading group in the garage rock revival.

Upon the release of their acclaimed début album Is This It in 2001, many critics hyped the group as the "saviors of rock" for their stripped down sound heavily influenced by bands such as Television. Since then, the band has maintained a fan base and has enjoyed much success in the United Kingdom, and Canada.
