Everything on Elephant is SLS worthy and this is the latest single so I'm nominating it unless something better from Elephant is released before July 1. This is a cover of a Dusty Springfield tune, by the way. It's good.

I agree Mike. Ball & Biscuit is getting a lot of radio play in the states and may give IJDKWTDWM a run for its money. One stike against B&B...it's 7+ minutes long! CFNY will have a hard time digesting that.

I'm hoping CFNY starts playing Black Math before the SLS11 deadline so we can lead off with it.

Black Math is a killer tune.

Unlikely to happen. Black Math charted briefly (and marginally) back in April when Elephant first came out.

The images on that site are disturbing...but I take it that's the point.

The cover is trippy...

...OK, this song is just plain wierd but I'm not saying it's not good. I think it's really funny. The first time I heard it I thought "what the hell?" but it got good.

Sweet Jebus, this song annoys the piss out of me now. I liked it when I first heard it, but it grates on me now.

the white stripes are so horrible, anyone who remotely hints at them being musicians should be shot in the head. their drummer hits the drums like 50 cent hits the bongs, sloppy and full of shit. their guitarist can barely play. all they did was come up with one almost decent riff and became famous. i know of another band who did this, nsync. they went on a tv show, covered a famous country song, annoyed the hell out of everyone with any taste.

whenever the white stripes won any awards i ran to the bathroom to puke because talentless morons who hit their musics like deranged monkeys (and not to mention sound like those 1000 monkeys on 1000 typewriters) could beat actual artists like linkin park, black eyed peas or kelly osbourne (ok ok its a stretch, but at least she sounds decent compared to the white stripes.

it is my fondest wish that they lie face down on the pavement and get run over by 500 transport trucks and taste their own blood. or maybe we should just punish them in the most horrible manner ever... force them to listen to the 'she bangs she bangs' guy off of american idol. it may be good music to them, if any of their given songs is an indication

SO, spike, you take your putdowns to a creative peak, good for you. anyway, you are correct when you say that "all they did was come up with one almost decent riff and became famous." That is all that anyone has ever done, whether it be of their own talent or by ripping off someone elses. And especially in this day and age of pretty shitty stuff hitting the air waves, its no wonder that a pure and simple guitar riff can knock out noisy bullshit like crapmetal and craprap. Thank the Gods of Music that the White Stripes are here, and thank them for anyone else who isnt afraid to strip down to the basics, bc thats what you need every once in a while. Purity. Soul.

Hey Spike, you know why their music is so minimal? BECAUSE THEY'RE A MINIMALIST BAND! Duh. I mean, jeez. Yeah, they have very little instruments and have solid plain beats, and THAT'S THE POINT!

ok spike is obvoiusly a fuckin retarded nigger if he thinks kelly osbourne or linkin park are better than the stripes. "the guitarist can barely play"? what the fuck? linkin park has never even heard of a solo, much less being able to play one as well as jack, not to mention the riffs....go fuck your mother you donkey raping shit-eater

it is my sincerest wish that whoever posted those inane comments go live in fuckin antartica and take every piece of shit band that he/she likes with the them

The White Stripes are the best band on the palnet today, bar none (sorry U2 fans, but its true). I just dont know what to do with myself isn't that bad of a tune, but i really love the way the stripes cover old songs for a new gerneration of REAL music lovers, not scream into the mic and bang your head garbage that is played far too often on the airwaves

Check out Winnebago Deal, insted. They're a two
piece band, just like The White Stripes, and their music is lightyears ahead of The White Stripes.
May(SIC?) is a disgrace to all drummers worldwide, she can't even do any decent fills or beats, other than standard 1/4(sorry for the term use) In short; she SUCKS!
