Rock duo that makes amazing music using the least amount of instruments possible. Part of the rock revival and one of the only bands around today who play actual rock music. In a couple of years they will probably make an awesome album using only a cheeze grater, a pan, and a wooden spoon.
The White Stripes Rule...if you don't think so you can just go back listening to your Linkin Park shit

Two piece contemporary garage rock band who led the Garage Rock Revival in the early 2000s. Their music consist of mainly a guitar and drum set, with the occasional piano and a few more instruments. Jack White is the songwriter, guitarist, pianist, and the vocalist. Meg White is the drummer who basically lays down a steady beat in every song.

The Whites Stripes' music is a fuse of Delta Blues, three chord Punk, raw power of 60s Garage Rock, quirky and down home lyrics, country-folk, slight elements of jazz, and yes even southern gospel. With a random listenening of a song, you might here Jack White as: Bob Dylan, Robert Johnson, Paul McCartney, or Kurt Cobain just to name a few.

By many critics and audience, The White Stripes will surely become Rock legends one day (if they haven't already). With songs like "Seven Nation Army" becoming soccer anthems, the future looks very bright for this band.

A rock band that continues to frustrate pompous critics by actually living up to the hype. The White Stripes have always produced quality records, but in recent years have released three classics in a row ("White Blood Cells", "Elephant", and the newest, "Get Behind Me Satan").
"Red Rain", "My Doorbell", and "Take, Take, Take". Three great tracks off the newest record by The White Stripes. If you think those songs suck, you don't like rock music. Period.

A great band with catchy music. People who critisize them, think about this, would you have the balls to go onstage with only a female drummer and 40 year old equipment?
The White Stripes are a great band with catchy music.
