The White Stripes About
The White Stripes were a 2000’s rock duo from Detroit, consisting of Jack White and Meg White. They had a sound that mixed classic blues with smart, boisterous, and vibrant punk-rock.
The group became rock stars and Grammy winners in only a few short years. Assisting in that transition was intrigue.
The pair was a once-married couple who pretended to be siblings and, for a while, insisted on dressing in alternating red and white outfits. The chaffing riffs that drove the duo’s best tracks, such as 2003’s Seven Nation Army, testify to the importance of rock’s abrasive and experimental nature.
