The Black Keys

It's too facile to call the Black Keys counterparts of the White Stripes: they share several surface similarities -- their names are color-coded, they hail from the Midwest, they're guitar-and-drum blues-rock duos -- but the Black Keys are their own distinct thing, a tougher, rougher rock band with a purist streak that never surfaces in the Stripes. But that's not to say that the Black Keys are blues traditionalists: even on their 2002 debut, The Big Come Up, they covered the Beatles' psychedelic classic “She Said She Said,” indicating a fascination with sound and texture that would later take hold on such latter-day albums as 2008's Attack & Release, where guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney teamed up with sonic architect Danger Mouse. In between those two records, the duo established the Black Keys as a rock & roll band with a brutal, primal force, and songwriters of considerable depth, as evidenced on such fine albums as 2003's Thickfreakness and 2004's Rubber Factory.

Natives of Akron, Ohio, the Black Keys released their debut, The Big Come Up, in 2002, receiving strong reviews and sales, and leading to a contract with Fat Possum by the end of the year. That label released Thickfreakness, recorded in a 14-hour session, in the spring of 2003, and the Keys supported the album with an opening tour for Sleater-Kinney. The Black Keys' momentum escalated considerably with their 2004 album Rubber Factory, which not only received strong reviews but some high-profile play, including a video for "10 A.M. Automatic" featuring comedian David Cross. The band's highly touted live act was documented on a 2005 DVD, released the same year as Chulahoma -- an EP of blues covers -- appeared.

The Black Keys made the leap to the major labels with 2006's Magic Potion, a moodier record that continued to build their fan base. The band capitalized on that moodiness with 2008's Attack & Release, whose production by Danger Mouse signaled that the Black Keys were hardly just blues-rock purists. Salvaged from sessions intended as a duet album with Ike Turner, who died before the record could be finished, the album was the Black Keys' biggest to date, debuting in the Billboard Top 15 and earning strong reviews. Following their second live DVD, the Black Keys spent 2009 on side projects, with Auerbach releasing his solo album Keep It Hid in the beginning of the year, and Carney forming the band Drummer, in which he played bass. At the end of 2009, Blakroc, a rap-rock collaboration between the band and producer Damon Dash, appeared.

Brothers, released in 2010, became their biggest album yet, generating the hit singles "Tighten Up," "Howlin' for You," and "Next Girl." It also saw the Keys returning to their tough blues roots with a new grandness, earning three Grammy Awards, landing on year-end lists from NPR to Rolling Stone, and going gold. The band offered a more straight-ahead rock & roll sound with 2011's El Camino. On the strength of the hit single "Lonely Boy," El Camino debuted at number two on Billboard's Top 200 and the Black Keys worked the album hard throughout the next year, releasing "Gold on the Ceiling" as the record's second single and touring heavily. In the fall of 2012, the Tour Rehearsal Tapes EP -- a brief collection of live-in-the-studio run-throughs of 2012 material -- was released.

Once again tapping Danger Mouse to produce a follow-up, the band went back into the studio in summer 2013 to record. Standing in contrast to the short, spiky rock & roll of El Camino, Turn Blue had a psychedelic undercurrent that could be heard on its preceding singles "Fever" and "Turn Blue." The album appeared early in May 2014 and promptly debuted at the top of the pop charts. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Well worth the wait.
A little black keys to start my day. Can't go wrong with them
Ouch guitarguy 95. Including more pop elements into song writing isn't bad and far far from formulaic (like OneRepublic) . Whats next? your going to knock the Beatles too.
Weight of,love
I want the blues rock back, not s**tty formulaic pop. RIP black keys.
y got me.......... . . . . . . . . .
They rocKKKK
I do
Who likes them
Thy are so awesome
The keys will rock
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will be injured(but won't die) in two days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. Post this on at least five other songs in the next 143 minutes when your done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works

Wow you know ANOTHER song by this band?!? That's crazy! Please tell is the lyrics!!!
When ii was young and moving fast, nothing slowed me down. Now ii let the others pass....ive come around
Ohhhh ive come around!
I rock therefore I AM...
Love this band!!
My sister loves this song it will always remind me of her. Love you fifi!!��
This band is your average modern day blues duo many have come before many will come after. Nothing special about the music at all, just 3 chord pop nonsense. I miss the days of the King and Clapton.

Pandora has turn to s**t
Fever can you hear me
sarab7127
Copy and past this on 10 other songs in 53 minutes or a dead girl will show up in your room and say she loves you or she's sorry. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. You'll get kissed by your crush and be asked out. Don't break this chain.
that scratchy sound... sounds good don't it
decimatorg
I saw them live (or just heard them from the back) at a festival in new orleans a couple years back

You guys seriously retaliating to someone with a username like Fat nutsac? Just ignore it. I saw Arctic Monkeys open for Black Keys. Best show I've ever attended.
