“Reptilia” is a song by indie rock band The Strokes, and the second single from their second album Room on Fire. The single’s B-side contains “Modern Girls & Old Fashion Men”, where lead singer Julian Casablancas duets with Regina Spektor. The official release date was delayed slightly after Casablancas objected to the song being credited as “The Strokes and Regina Spektor”, claiming that it should read “by Regina Spektor & The Strokes”. The title “Reptilia” refers to the “Reptilian complex”, the central part of one’s brain that handles basic emotions such as love and hate. The cover of the single features the artwork from the cabinet of the 1980 arcade game Centipede by Atari. Read on...
