    Not really. You don't get to choose which music you like. Anyway The White Stripes are on that list, totally destroying its credibility. There's probably loads of other rubbish on it too that I don't remember right now.

    Of course The White Stripes are "shite", but I used to admire them for their enthusiasm. Shame they split up, because Jack White has gone on to do far worse - now that is complete and utter crap! (IMO )
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Lol, my comment was partially tongue in cheek mate, due to the thread BUT I'm no fan. I remember them being labelled as a cross between Jimi Hendrix and some other legend and being left totally underwhelmed at their offerings.
