The White Stripes Officially Break Up

HuffPo (and every other blog in the world) reports:

The White Stripes are done.

The groundbreaking rock duo announced Wednesday they are splitting up and "will make no further new recordings or perform live."

Jack White and Meg White say there are a "myriad of reasons" for the breakup, but the main reason is to "preserve what is beautiful and special about the band."

The last recording by the White Stripes was the live album "Under the Great White Northern Lights," released last year.

You can supposedly read the letter at whitestripes.com, but I can't get the page to load because every panicked fanboy on the internet is hogging their bandwith.

RIP White Stripes.
