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.
