Following their stellar wins at the 2013 Grammys, it’s no surprise that The Black Keys’ Youtube views have skyrocketed in the past few days. And their success is well-deserved. With a less-than glamorous rise to fame as reported by The Guardian a while back, it seems that The Black Keys come from a different era, a more rugged ilk than some of the bands out there today.
We love them because you can feel the labour in their music. Their lyrics remind us of the neighbour-band from down the street, who seem to have somehow professionalized their sound.
With hit after hit stumbling from their collection, it’s time to take a minute to remember their top 5 most awesome songs.
We enjoyed listening through their back catalogue this evening that we cracked open a bottle of wine, lit a cigarette, and sent a sexy text to our other halves! Rock n’Roll will do that to you!
