I don't know what it is, but ever since their debacle performance on Late Night with Conan O'Brien I really haven't been able to listen to any of their stuff.  have you ever had a band give such a bad performance they turn you off their music?

Dont think I was ever turned on. I think I liked one of their songs but then again it might not have been their's.

They did a horrible rendition of 'We're Going to be Friends'. It was like they were phoning in themselves phoning in the song.

Saw one of their videos once, thought it was quite good. I don't remember the song itself being anything special, just the standard commercial rock/pop, but the visuals were very clever. I don't think I've ever heard anything else by them unless it was anonymous bar background music. So no, they aren't annoying me.

I've always found them annoying.

I found Jack White doubly annoying when he was part of the asstastic theme song for Quantum of Solace.

Yuck.

I do not think live performances are their strong point since Meg (look at them titties icon_eek) White has anxiety issues. I find them annoying because if they do have a hit all the radio stations play that song once every 3 hours for 6 months straight. Anything will be annoying after that.

Doesn't that happen with any popular group? Don't listen to those stations. I don't, they ruin music.

Missed the performance, but read elsewhere it was very meh. Don't care, I like them and will buy any future release.

They rock and Jack White is one of the best front men out there today. That he gets all that sound from 1 guitar is amazing.

i heard he wrote 7 Nation Army in the hope of it being a Bond Tune,it does have a Bond type riff/thing to it...guess he got his dream with Another way to Die,i quite liked that song too

No, not really. White Stripes have a sound that makes them palatable to any station that plays rock or pop to play their music, well except classic rock stations. So even if I change the station several times through the day, I still here the same song several times. Even on XM/Sirius, White Stripes gets played on several channels. Other than U2 I cannot think of another band that gets overplayed to their extent.

"Another Way to Die" might be a perfectly good rock song.

As a Bond song?  It's utter shit.

I've got Elephant and White Blood Cells and like them both.  I'd heard their newer stuff wasn't as strong so I never felt compelled to check them out.
