Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner is a noted fan of the Julian Casablancas-fronted band. In the opening track to their new album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, Turner sings: “I just wanted to be one of the Strokes, now look at the mess you made me make.” In 2011, he discussed his love of Is This It. Arctic Monkeys have also previously covered “Take It Or Leave It” and “Reptilia.”
