#strokes6music - what would you put on the ultimate Strokes playlist?

Tagged with:

What a week for fans of The Strokes. If the surprise appearence of a brand new song 'One Way Trigger' on Friday night wasn't enough, 'last nite' our favourite boys from NYC announced a brand studio album - 'Comedown Machine' - to be released on March 25.

We love The Strokes at BBC Radio 6 Music - in our eleven years on air the've grown up alongside us, with songs from all their previous four albums becoming staples of our playlist.It's not just on record they excel, live they're also a formidable proposition - remember Reading 2011 when Jarvis joind them on stage?

In honour of their return, this Sunday we want to create the ultimate Strokes playlist - but we need YOUR help picking the tunes. It could be:

*Your favourite track by the band, b-side, album track, rarity or 6 Music Greatest Hit nominated 'Juicebox'.

*Other artists Julian Casablancas has worked with such as Queens of the Stone Age, Danger Mouse, Santigold...or even some of his solo material. *

*Acts which scream New York - Blondie, LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture… This list is endless.

*Their punk influences like The Ramones and The CBGBs

*Contemporaries such as Interpol, The White Stripes and The Hives

*Or up-and-coming artists who owe much to The Strokes - perhaps The Vaccines or Palma Violets?

It's up you to shape the playlist. Tweet your suggestions using #strokes6music, leave your suggestions on our Facebook page, email us your Strokes stories or add tracks to our collaborative Spotify Playlist. And you're a Strokes fan be sure to tune in to BBC Radio 6 Music this Sunday at 6pm for two hours deduicated to the band and their world. Is This It? Definitely.
