"The End Has No End" is a song by the indie rock band The Strokes, and the third single from Room on Fire. The B-side to the single is a cover of the Clash song "Clampdown", recorded from a live performance at London's Alexandra Palace. The Alexandra Palace performance was intended to be The Strokes' first live album, but was scrapped due to poor sound quality.
The music video for the song contains several allusions to Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and features actresses Mila Kunis and Eva Mendes as well as The Strokes' manager Ryan Gentles in the lead role. It was directed by Sophie Muller. The Strokes can be seen in the video during the prom scene. The band performance in the mirrored room is a nod to (No Pussyfooting) (1973) by Fripp & Eno and A Flock of Seagulls' "I Ran" music video. The final scene from the video is a clip from the band's first single "12:51" off the same album Room on Fire, and is a reference to the 1982 film Tron.
