Indie rockstar and Stroke’s frontman, Julian Casablancas, released an impressive cover of the Velvet Underground’s “Run Run Run”.
Casablancas’ cover was featured on the soundtrack for HBO’s new show Vinyl, which is based on the music business in the 70’s.
According to Casablancas, the Strokes original sound was somewhat influenced by The Velvet Underground.
The Velvet Underground was an influential New York rock band in the 60’s & 70’s. The song “Run Run Run” is off of their 1967 album The Velvet Underground and Nico which was a gritty, distorted and groundbreaking album.
