The White Stripes for Kids
If you follow Loog, you might know that we're big on The White Stripes' music. This band revolutionized the alternative rock sound of the late 1990's and early 2000's with simple yet profound songs and experimental guitar sounds rooted in garage rock and the blues.
There's few riffs that can be chanted in mass as gloriously as "Seven Nation Army" and still sound as good and instantly recognizable. It's also safe to say that we've all sang it at some point in our lives! The White Stripes has become a staple in rock music as this stadium-sized riff became immortal.
However, it's not all about "Seven Nation Army", as The White Stripes has had a six album long career with many hits such as "Blue Orchid", "We're Going To Be Friends" and "Fell In Love With A Girl" among others.
Jack White's raw and minimalist approach to production and songwriting, makes his songs perfect first-songs-on-guitar. This is exactly why we think every kid should know about The White Stripes. And we also KNOW that Jack White's riffs sound fantastic on a Loog guitar! (Trust us, we've tried it ourselves 😉). In fact, we'll tell you more: Jack White has proved this himself. Check out this post about the Custom Loog Guitar that we've made for him. He even played it LIVE ON STAGE in Montevideo, Uruguay.
