The White Stripes (2003)
Oh, yeah, all the time. On our first tour, we toured with Julian Casablancas from The Strokes, and we were in a really small town. We had walked on stage, and in the front row a dude was like, “Oh, fuck, a girl band.” I was like, “For real man? We just walked on stage, and you’re already mad-dogging us? Just wait.” By the end of the set, he was head-bopping and getting into it. But [the fact that] there’s a bad connotation with women in music is just so weird, because we’ve always been in music. Does anyone remember Blondie? We’ve always been here. We’re not going anywhere. It’s just so weird to me. I honestly am so happy to take on any dude or any person who thinks women can’t play music, because it’s just fucking stupid. I will take you on, and I will change your vision.
