Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I am breaking up the band because that is what Jack White does

The White Stripes were a rock duo out of Detroit. They released 6 albums, the most recent being Icky Thump, alongside two concert movies. You may have also known them as "That band that did the 'seven nation' thing, you know the one chanted at soccer games?"

Yes, past tense. They've broken up.

This shouldn't be a surprise, given that their last tour was canceled midway through, and it's been 4 years since they've released an album. Also, Jack White's been spending all of his time with his two other bands, the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather.

One of the quirkier bands out there, they proved that you didn't need a bass to be rockers.

Goodbye, White Stripes.

    Oh yeah, definitely. Just whenever I think of Ringo, I think of this - "Lennon, asked if Starr was the best drummer in the world, jokingly replied, 'He's not even the best drummer in The Beatles!'" Take that, incredibly rich and famous old guy!

    But yeah, love(d) White Stripes, sad I won't be hearing anything new ever again...

    Just put catch hell blues on, turn the volume up to 'ear-bleeding', and have a good ol' time...

    That may be my favourite song by the Stripes.

    Some of my favorite White Stripes songs are their covers. Their versions of Conquest and Walking With a Ghost are so good.

    Jack White married somebody else a few years back. I think it was a model who appeared in one of their music videos.

    I know. But if we could have toned that down to a heavy to severe beating and transferred it to about ten to fifteen years prior to 1980, I think I would have been happy

    My fiance's brother used to date Meg White, and he will bring it up in every conversation ever. It was sad, she moved to Detroit and just left him in her mansion.

    They got married and jack took meg's last name. They didnt like each other as much as they thought and got divorced. But that was after they started the band i think. So when they got big they told everyone they were brother and sister because they had the same last name still. But they are still good friends anyway.

    tl:dr its complicated.
