The story:
"The Strokes' bus – $uckin dick$
“This was 2002, I think. I was out on tour with The Icarus Line who were opening up for Cave In on a two-month, cross-country trek. Cave In had just signed to RCA records, so when we got to North Carolina towards the end of the tour, they skipped out on the show with The Icarus line and played across town opening for their label mates, The Strokes. After our show, we ended up going over to check out The Strokes. Joe and I got bored a couple of songs in and ended up going out to the parking lot and spray painting ‘$uckin’ Dick$’ on the side of their tour bus. It wasn’t planned, it just felt right. I flew to New York the next day to hang out with Gideon Yago and ended up drinking with The Strokes on their tab at bar called 2A. I’m pretty sure they didn’t know who had spray painted their bus until a week later when Spin Magazine ran these photos. We never got a bill. Ah, to be young and shitty.”
