The only one jumping out of my head right now is The White Stripes and The Black Keys. They are both 2 person units (drums/guitar) that play electric blues. While one may have a better drummer I thoroughly enjoy The Stripes while I can't stand The Black Keys. I couldn't even tell you what song it was but it got extensive play here in Indy and it drove me insane. The vocal melody was annoying and it may have featured a limited vocabulary which would be enough to annoy the crap out of me as I love songs that never repeat except for the chorus (weird as I love Nirvana). Anyways, The White Stripes have a little more versatility delving into delta blues, pop/rock, hard rock and piano ballads which may have something to do with my preference for them out of all my favorite bands but I think it's just the fact that The Black Keys really offer me personally nothing. The guys voice annoys me as do a lot of the riffs they produce. Plus they cancelled part of a tour because they were "tired". Seriously? Fuck off.
