The White Stripes’ “You Don’t Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You’re Told)” is surely one of the best songs of the year. I can’t believe it’s not on the ballot for Little Steven’s “Coolest Song In The World This Year”! To be fair, “Icky Thump” and “Conquest” are on the ballot.

And speaking of “Conquest,” The Stripes have just released a Conquest EP, with a bunch of new songs, two of which are collaborations with Beck: “It’s My Fault For Being Famous” and “Cash Grab Complications On The Matter.” There’s also another new song, “Honey, We Can’t Afford To Look This Cheap,” plus a new version of “Conquest.”

I’ve heard that The White Stripes may never tour again – my guess would be that Meg White doesn’t like being on the road. That would be a shame, but as long as they put out music this good, that’s cool. (And as long as Jack still tours with The Raconteurs).
