“Last Nite” is a song by the garage rock band The Strokes, and their second single from Is This It. A segment of the song was used by “Weird Al” Yankovic for his polka medley, “Angry White Boy Polka”. The guitar riff that begins the song is similar to the intro of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers’ “American Girl”. In a 2006 interview with Rolling Stone, Tom Petty said “The Strokes took ‘American Girl’ their song ‘Last Nite’, there was an interview that took place with them where they actually admitted it. When performed live, Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas will occasionally sing lines from “American Girl” in between his original lyrics. “Last Nite” was used in TV promos for the 2010 film Get Him to the Greek.
