The Black Keys: the attribute of coolness
Rock is definitely a music that owes much of its appeal to attitude. Rock does not just consist of looking or sounding cool; this music is about being cool. Take a look at the greatest rock icons of all time and you'll surely find attitude as a common trait. That being said, The Black Keys is one of the coolest groups nowadays. Their vintage-back-to-basics-old-school-whatever-you-call-it kind of blues has gained them praise all over the world. It's not hard to see why: listen to their latest effort, Brothers (2010), for example, and you'll have a great taste of what this couple of musicians is capable of doing. Brothers is an impressive collection of simple, catchy and, above all, well-crafted tunes. This music is cool, so just go and listen to it.
