The 10 Nastiest Feuds in Alternative Music
Oh, Jack White, you sassy rascal. Or wait: maybe Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney is the cheeky monkey in the most recent round of the White Stripes vs. the Black Keys.
That's the thing with celebrity beefs -- as spectators rarely do we know who is in the right and who's to blame. Heck, most of the time we don't even know whether they're real. Some of these celebrity feuds are like fast food hamburgers: no actual beef, just clever marketing. Nothing grabs headlines faster these days than a famous person Twitter war, after all.
Calling some of them "feuds" is a stretch, for that matter. Some of these poor folks did nothing more than shared an opinion only to have the internet magnify a passing comment into a "feud." But don't kid yourself: Musician beefs aren't the sole domain of hip hop artists. Over the years there have been quite a few public flare-ups at the alt-indie end of the music universe, too. Check out 10 in the gallery above.
