White Stripes sell-out, write music for Coca-Cola ad.

http://nme.com/news/white-stripes/21410

Throw another band on the "sell-out" garbage pile.

It's no longer about the music. It's all about the $.

White Stripes singer Jack White has finally confirmed he's done a coke ad - and said he's done it to get a message of love out to the world.



Yeah right...

Jack fancies the Coke cans, what with the same color scheme and all. Pepsi didn't stand a chance.

Jack White could stop and start selling Crest toothepaste in the middle of his shows, and he'd still be the most badass rocker on the planet.

Heh. It was only a matter of time.

White's voice is hilarious - he just doesn't know it. He sounds like Bob Goldthwait from Police Academy 2.

I like some of their tunes, and have no problem with artists getting paid.

It's not 1985 anymore.

But the indie purist who loves the band must be in hell right now.

That makes me happy.

We'll be seeing lots of White Stripes CD's in the used bin.

Exactly.

Overrated would be an understatement.

You know, viewing yourself above the indie subculture is in a roundabout way no different from being within the indie subculture and viewing yourself above everyone else.
