The Strokes bass player ruins the Strokes' collective brand by wearing a sleeveless shirt on SNL

The Strokes were on Saturday Night Live, and it was potentially good, but also potentially 'hella boring.' The only real shocking part of the performance was the decision of The Strokes bass player Nikolai Fraiture to wear a sleeveless shirt. I guess maybe he is just trying to ride summer-style chilwaves. Usually members of bands wear 'jackets' and other shit that 'makes them look kewl' on stage even when they are playing on TV because they are trying to just 'look how a band is supposed to look.'

Did Nikki ruin the Strokes collective personal brand, or did he take his own personal brand 2 such great heights?

Is Nikolai Fraiture the 'most alt' member of The Strokes?
Should Nikki 'go solo'?

Here is the other song they played called “Life Is Simple In The Moonlight” which seems 'okay', but still really couldn't take my eyes off Nikolai and his sleeveless shirt.

Are sleeveless shirts gonna be 'big' this summer?
Should I wear a sleeveless shirt to Coachella?
Are tanktops 'effing dead'?
Do u have a mancrush on Nikolai?
Did he 'ruin' The Strokes brand, or will his sleeveless shirt be the alt touch that 'saves' our perception of The Strokes progressiveness/kewlness?

Did the Strokes 'crush it' on SNL? Or were they 'whatever'?
can the Strokes replace the Kings of Leon as the #1 bro band in the USA?
Are sleeves on t-shirts gonna be 'so out' this summer? [via the slarf]

Laters yall. Gotta go buy a sleeveless shirt for Southby/Coachella/Bonnyroo/Lollypalooze/_____.
