The Modern Age is the debut EP by garage rock band The Strokes. It was released on January 29, 2001 in the United Kingdom and May 22, 2001 in the United States, sparking a bidding war among record labels; the largest for a rock band in years.[3]

All the songs were re-recorded for their debut album, Is This It, with slightly different lyrics and song structures.
