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 band too great for most dumbfucks to comprehend. also actually has a blues-based background and is inspired by some of the greatest musicians of all time unlike most bands that are basically just record deals given to random people walking on the street.

A minimalist blues-rock duo from Detroit, Michigan. The band consists of Jack White (guitar, piano, mandolin, marimba, and vocals) and Meg White (drums, tambourine, bells, and vocals). The band only uses the colors red, white, and black. The band, Jack in particular, has an obsession with, and revolves around the number three. Speculations surround the two's relationship. Ex-husband and wife? Brother and Sister? The two were infact married, but were divorced in 2000 after a 4 year marriage. As of now, the band has released 5 albums which are: The White Stripes; De Stijl; White Blood Cells; Elephant; Get Behind Me Satan.

The greatest rock duo of all time. Vocals, guitar, mandolin, and various other instruments by eccentric frontman Jack White. Drums, tambourine, and vocals by the shy Meg White - who many believe is a untalented drummer for her use of simple and innocent beats, although this is very untrue. Known for their oddness, black/white/red color scheme, and amazing music. It is believed by some they are brother/sister, but they were ex-husband and wife. They were married, but now divorced refer to eachother as siblings. Often refered to as "freaks" or "weirdos". If this is true, they are the coolest freaks I have ever seen.
Idiotic person: The White Stripes suck! They are so weird!
Me: No, you are just incapible of appreciating real music and real talent. Go listen to your Soulja Boy and Jonas Brothers and get a life.
Idiotic person: Whatever!
Me: *paints black circles around eyes*

the poorest excuse for music since rolf harris. the white stripes' music consists of the same drum beat repeated an infinite number of times, accompanied by the simplest and most annoying guitar riff ever. or a tambourine. or whatever other fucking gay instrument the white stripes found in their garage last week.

the people who listen to the white stripes are generally people with no musical taste whatsoever, or such a desperate desire for attention that they talk all kinds of shit to get noticed. these people will most likely be an activist of some kind.
if someone tells you they like the white stripes they are either lying or trying to repel you
