The 1999 self-titled debut by The White Stripes ended the 90s with a minimalist blues recording that would reorient rock music for a decade

The White Stripes debut of minimalist blues paired down to just vocals, guitar, and drums wasn't completely without precedent in the underground music scene with bands like the Flat Duo Jets and Bassholes preceding them.
