After more than 13 years, one of Detroit’s most beloved rock bands announced they are calling it quits. The White Stripes, which revived  garage rock, was made up of duo and divorced couple Jack and Meg White. (The two initially pretended to be brother and sister.) The band was known for their electric energy and raw sound. Kim LaCapria is a writer for The Inquistr, a pop culture and tech blog and a superfan. She explains why The White Stripes moved her.

On their website, the band wrote: “The White Stripes do not belong to Meg and Jack anymore. The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want.”
