The White Stripes.

Quite how a 14th rate Royal Trux tribute band have ascended to the critical and commercial heights that they've achieved is an even bigger mystery than the identity of Jack the Ripper. Even the normally infallible Peelie supported them. Why, John, why?

Not only that, they've spawned a legion of even crappier imitators who follow the same two-piece guitarist/drummer format. Had the unfortunate luck to be in the Montague Arms last month whilst some band called No One You Know (appropriately, seeing as there was no-one there) attempted, and failed miserably, to pull off the same one-trick pony act as the Stripes.

Shite bands may be a fact of life, but bands who aspire to be other shite bands are even sadder.
