White Stripes

Postby Kifle » Tue Jul 03, 2007 3:39 pm

I was listening to the White Stripes the other day and couldn't help but think one of their songs is a huge rip-off of an old song (thinking either folk or off sesemee street... don't ask). Anyway, it's bugging the shit out of me because I can't seem to think of it. The song is called "Effect & Cause," off of the album Icky Thump.

Any help with this problem would be appreciated.

You're slandering probably the greatest band of our time. You should die. In a fire.

This message brought to you by possibly the biggest fan that Creed has ever had.

That is all.

There is no doubt in my mind that this is one of the all-time greatest burns in history. I'm happy to have witnessed it.

It reminds me of "It's True That We Love One Another", off Elephant. Other than that I don't know what you're talking about.

White Stripes needs a real drummer. Meg plays like a 3 year old.

As much as everybody's personal opinion of the White Stripes means to me, it doesn't really help with my original question...

I'm pretty sure it's Loretta Lynn. For the haters, Jack and Meg worked with Loretta a lot. I think the song is Rated X although I could be wrong. I haven't listened to it to make sure. Definitely an homage though.

Yeah the song is Rated "X" by Loretta Lynn. I listened to Rated X and I can see some similarties, but then again I only listed to about half a minute of each.

Fuck you Rags.

(Yes I used to love Creed until their third album came out. I still think that the first one is good.)


I like the Racontuers as well.

I miss you too Mamoru!
