These 2 RAWK!!!!!!!

I picked up my first White Stripes disc last week, and immediately fell in love with them.

I had always heard the songs on the radio and was never really impressed, but I finally said screw it and bought Icky Thump anyways. Holy fright, I've been thumping ickily all week. Unbelievable.

That also prompted me to go out and get the previous 2 discs as well. What is so sad to me, is that the songs on the radio don't do this band justice.

Favorite songs on Icky Thump:

Icky Thump
Rag and Bone (FRIGGIN' AWESOME TUNE!!!!!!!)
I'm Slowly Turning into You

Thanks for helping me out and telling me how great these guys were, HBT. Tools.

Try their older stuff. Seven Nation Army and Dead Leaves on the Dirty Ground are probably their best songs (IMO). Ball and Biscuit is awesome too if you like blues rock. I think they have 4 or 5 discs out (maybe more if there are some obscure releases).

There's some live concert footage on youtube - it gives you an appreciation of how good Jack is by seeing outside of the studio.

You have been missing out, one of the most talented groups in recent times. Check out Jack's "new" band, the Racontours, their album Broken Boy Soldier is amazing, like most, you need to give it a few listens through before you will love it, but you will.

Also to check out...

The Black Keys
Lucero
Wolfmother

LOL...Yes, yes you did. I was hoping you'd see this thread, because I definitely need a smack from the dingbat stick right now. ;0

I actually compare it a lot to the QOTSA thing that I've told you many times. The QOTSA songs played on the radio isn't what they are all about. Their best music is the stuff not on the radio.

Regarding the Stripes, that Rag and Bone song cracks me the hell up.

It's a sign you're getting old. You aren't allowed to listen to good music anymore
