"Juicebox" is a song by the American rock band The Strokes. It is the second track and first single from The Strokes' third album, First Impressions of Earth, released in the US in October 2005. Julian Casablancas was quoted in Spin Magazine as saying this about the song: "I remember people saying this track's ugly, I think it's got a great personality." The track was leaked long before its scheduled single release,[1] forcing the band and managers to release it as a single in iTunes format earlier than planned.[2] The B-side to the single is the song "Hawaii".

Henry Mancini is also credited as a composer, due to the similarities between the song's bassline and "Peter Gunn".


Their first single in over a year, "Juicebox" marked the Strokes' second single to reach the Top 10 in the UK and also their highest charting single to date. The song also became their first and only single to chart the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, at #98.

Music video[]

The video for "Juicebox", directed by Michael Palmieri with cinematography by Christopher Doyle, features comedian David Cross as a DJ in a radio station in New York City. The video caused some controversy because it contained graphic sexual content, which caused Palmieri to heavily edit it so it would be less explicit.
