The Black Keys.

The Black Keys is an American band from Akron, Ohio. Dan Auerbach and Patrck Carney met one day and decided to make music. A friend of theirs who had the habit of calling all he knew "blacks", and they like that name so much, that they decided to make music under the name The Black Keys.

From there, they started very well with the album "The Big Come Up", which was released in 2002. The duo was also compared to the duo The White Stripes, but with a footprint much more psychedelic and lo-fi (low fidelity). In this album they did a cover of a song by The Beatles, "She Said, She Said".

After the first album, not so great but overwhelming, they released their second album "Thickfreakness". This CD reached a higher level in the mainstream indie rock with a psychedelic blues, in the style of Led Zeppelin mixed with White Stripes. One song on "Thickfreakness", "Set you free", entered the film School of Rock starring Jack Black. One of the greatest hits of this album was "Have love will travel", reaching the top charts of indie rock music.
But they rocked even more in the their release, "Rubber Factory", with fast melodies and clean sounds. They were ordered in some of the most popular talk shows in U.S., like the Late Show's with David Letterman. The singles of this album was "10 AM Automatic" and "stack Shot Billy".

After this third album I practically begin to love this band in a level so high that I can't explain. Metallica is my favourite band entered to number one in my favourite band list. The albums "Brothers", and the latest "El Camino" are absolutely perfect. This band it's a real big deal for me, and it's on the list "Bands I want to see before dying". Here's my favourite song,hope you like it as much as I do.
