More proof that the general public has no taste in music (see also White Stripes). Ever hear their song "Are You Gonna Be My Girl?" The entire song is based around ONE chord. Apparently people are entertained by a song that only has one chord in it. To further add insult to injury, Jet's music also sounds like it was recorded in the 70s. The reason music in the 70s sounded like that was due to the limitations of recording technology; it was not a sound for which people strived.
Guy 1: "Are You Gonna By My Girl" by Jet is a great song.
Guy 2: "That entire song is based around ONE chord?"
Guy 1: "Huh? What's a chord?"
Guy 2: "Obviously you have no clue about music."
Guy 1: "What? I like this song because MTV and my friends told me it was cool."
Guy 2: "Obviously..."
A band whose high sales and popularity are proof that the general public has no taste in music. White Stripes is comprised of people with *at most* 2 months of music instruction, zero vocal instruction, and a pseudo-70's low-fidelity sound. Music doesn't have to be complex to be fun to listen to (ie. Nirvana), but if it's both lacking structure AND annoying to listen to, you have a crappy band on your hands.
Guy 1: Hey, wanna go to the White Stripes concert?
Guy 2: No.
Guy 1: Why not?
Guy 2: Because I like bands that don't suck.
Guy 1: What are you talking about? White Stripes is a great band.
Guy 2: Why do you say that?
Guy 1: Because my friends told me so.
Guy 2: Oh, so you're unable to form your own opinions.
Guy 1: Yes.
Guy 2: I thought so.
