Watch Jack White’s Acoustic Take Away Show At A French Chateau

La Blogotheque's "Take Away Shows" video series are a Dogme 95-style thing in which bands perform entirely acoustic in unexpected French locations, with no effects to sweeten the performance. That's exactly the sort of set of restraints that would appeal to an old-school fetishist like Jack White, the subject of the latest installment. In hi… More »

Watch Vic Mensa Cover The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” At Lollapalooza

Up-and-coming Chicago rapper Vic Mensa took some time out of his Lollapalooza set to cover the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army." I can't tell if it's the sound quality or if he filtered the song through a bunch of noise, but it's a lot louder and more chaotic than the original and certainly managed… More »

Jack White Calls Black Keys “Watered-Down” White Stripes, Later Apologizes

Earlier this month, the Black Keys discussed their Jack White feud and were pretty sympathetic to the guy -- but now White has talked more about the Keys in his new Rolling Stone cover story, and it's pretty ugly.

Watch A Cruise Ship Cover The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army”

The central riff from the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" long ago ceased being simply a component part of a great rock song and instead became the sort of thing you chant at football games. (Go Ravens.) And over the weekend, as part of the Harbour Birthday celebrations in Hamburg, the MSC Magnifica,… More »

The 10 Best White Stripes Songs

The White Stripes were Occam's razor manifested as rock. Underneath the misdirection and mythology, it was just two people, wearing three colors, obsessed with one musical concept: the beauty of simplicity. More »

Rockin’ Legends To Pay Tribute To Jack White On Rockin’ Legends Pay Tribute To Jack White

Jack White has spent an entire brilliant career paying oblique tribute to the fuzzier, wilder ancestral forms of rock music that haven't, by and large, gotten a ton of play within popular culture over the past decade-plus. It's only right, then, that some of the survivors of those past eras are paying White some tribute… More »

Deconstructing: 10 Years Of The White Stripes Elephant And Exploding Hearts Guitar Romantic

The bar scene at Ohio University, where I was finishing up my freshman year this time 10 years ago, is a heavy-handed metaphor. Along the main drag, Court Street, are a few dozen establishments wherein coeds in search of bed buddies show off the binge drinking skills they honed in the dorms. For lack of… More »

Deconstructing: Jack White

"I eat sixteen saltine crackers, then I lick my fingers" is a killer rock lyric. Beyond the alliteration and syntax, that shit bleeds sex, both literally and in the tradition of lurid rock double entendres that dates back to “Blueberry Hill.” It’s sliced from the title of Jack White’s latest single “Sixteen Saltines,” which i… More »
