The Black Keys- thickfreakness (Live TV)

So you know who The Black Keys are now. That's awesome. But these guys have been at it for a long time (with a fair amount of success from the start). I recall immediately learning this song back in April 2003 after seeing them on Conan. Songs from the album "Thickfreakness" were also featured in the movies School of Rock and I Love You, Man. This cut is from back when they still toured as a two-piece. They toured -- they kept at it -- now they fill arenas (including the United Center this spring (3/19 with Arctic Monkeys)). This is the way blues should sound in the 21st century. Dan Auerbach and Pat Carney: we love YOU, man!
