Here's To The White Stripes, One of The Greatest Two-Piece Bands Ever

the White Stripes

Like many people in this planet, I was introduced to The White Stripes through Fell In Love With A Girl. Even it is very minimalistic song, it is one hella catchy tune. One more thing about the band is that I really love their music videos especially the stop-motion greatness that is Hardest Button to Button [check it out after the jump].

Because of those two reasons, I'm pretty sad that earlier this month, they have decided to end their journey as a band after close to 14 years together. :(

"The White Stripes do not belong to Meg and Jack anymore. The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want. The beauty of art and music is that it can last forever if people want it to. Thank you for sharing this experience. Your involvement will never be lost on us and we are truly grateful, " - The White Stripes.

Thanks for the music, Jack and Meg. Even though Jack might have plethora of other music projects such The Racontuers but White Stripes is White Stripes; they are just not the same.
