The White Stripes


Icky Thump (2007)

There is a dichotomy inherent to the White Stripes that more than one observer has grasped, and the dichotomy is essentially this: its members are misfits who manage to fit in.

For some time now frontman/guitarist Jack White and drummer/vocalist Meg have made music that would be at home in the indie ranks but has no business emerging to have large-scale commercial success. Yet few bands with any measure of staying power have attained equal popularity.
