After a 13-year career that saw the phrase "saviors of rock 'n' roll" tossed their way more times than we can count, The White Stripes officially called it quits yesterday
— surprise! — and while MTV posted a surprisingly touching piece
pinpointing just why so many people loved them so much, an awful lot of other people (well over 200 commentors on BrooklynVegan
at this point) have made different opinions public. We took to Twitter, where "White Stripes" has been trending since yesterday, to compile our favorites. It helps to listen to "We're Going to Be Friends,"
for optimal emotional punch, while reading.
