Michigan, consisting of Jack White (principal songwriter, vocals, guitar, piano)       
and Meg White (drums, percussion, vocals), and are often considered one of the

garage rock revival with their successful albums White Blood Cells and Elephant.       
The White Stripes are known for their raw, low-fidelity sound and simplicity of       
composition and arrangement, mostly inspired by punk rock, blues rock,                 
folk rock, and country music. July 14, 2007, marked their tenth                       
anniversary as a band, with a show held at the Savoy Theatre in Glace Bay, Nova       
Scotia, selling out in twelve minutes.
