    “WHO IS JACK WHITE?”

    @cnnbrk Funny. Everyone here is asking who Morgan Wallen is, and I’m like who tf is Jack White lol

    “IS HE THE ‘DON’T HURT YOURSELF’ MAN??”

    @JEONSYOONGl @PopCrave i know him just from “Lemonade” by Beyoncé

    To be fair, that song slaps.

    “WHO IS HE AND WHY IS HE NOT TAYLOR SWIFT?!”

    @PopCrave Literally who? We wanted Taylor

    “WHY ARE YOU BOTHERING ME AT WORK ABOUT A MUSICIAN THAT WAS POPULAR 15 YEARS AGO?”

    Who am I kidding? It was a large part.

    Am I like Jimmy Kimmel, when he asked Billie Eilish if she knew who Van Halen was? AM I WHAT I HATE???

    But no problem, people who aren’t approximately a billion years old — allow me to introduce you to Mr. White. Most people know him as the frontman for the White Stripes:

    “Seven Nation Army” is probably their biggest song, but you might also recognize “Fell in Love with a Girl” and “We’re Going to be Friends.”

    He was also in The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather…

    …and he’s had a pretty successful solo career.

    All in all, some great music that you should definitely check out.

    AND HE WAS A HUGE PART OF MY TEEN YEARS, WHICH ARE EVIDENTLY OVER NOW.
