Animal Army: 10 years to The White Stripe's "Elephant"

The White Stripes were formed in Detroit, Michigan in 1997. The (Then married...) duo consisted of Jack White (Vocals and guitar) and Meg White (Drums and Backing vocals). their first three records haven't got much success but the fourth, Elephant, which was released 10 years ago, on 1st of April, 2003 (No, that's not a joke), became an iconic album of the revival of Garage Rock in America. Sometimes I wonder how can only two persons make such enriched music with only few instruments, what stands in contrast to the over produced albums of the mainstream. I think that was the magic of The White Stripes, they took a great lyrics and loaded it with meaningful guitar and drums music. That's make their album sounds fresh even a decade after its release. For that 10th anniversary of Elephant, here are five songs that will help you to remember how good they were (the duo split in 2011)
