Label: Sympathy for the Record Industry
Key Track: "Fell in Love With a Girl"

The album that first gave folks outside the indie rock establishment a hint that there was something special going on with the ambiguously-related duo from Motown. With no bass and rudimentary drumming, the Stripes still brought a strut to rock that had been missing from the genre for years.

WBC was dedicated to Loretta Lynn, prompting a friendship between the Stripes and the country music legend.
