Dressed for Success: 7 Bands in Uniform

Jack and Meg White’s peppermint-candy coloration palette gave the duo an us-against-the-world camaraderie — which bought somewhat sophisticated when individuals realized that the Whites weren’t, as they’d initially mentioned, brother and sister, however somewhat a previously married couple. No matter works! (Listen on YouTube)

The White Stripes weren’t the one stars of the early 2000s garage-rock revival to embrace the uniform. The zany Swedish rockers the Hives — who returned earlier this yr with their first album in a decade — made stage-wear enjoyable once more with their daring black-and-white fits. (It wasn’t till they made it large, although, that they might afford to launder them correctly. Mentioned the drummer Chris Harmful in a Instances profile earlier this yr, their earliest fits “smelled so unhealthy, once we walked onstage on the finish of the tour, the viewers stepped again.”) (Listen on YouTube)

Future’s Youngster up to date the sound — and, in fact, the look — of the woman group throughout its reign within the late ’90s and early 2000s. In coordinated outfits designed by Beyoncé’s mom, Tina Knowles, the ladies glittered in green on the Grammys and, within the “Survivor” video, projected power in matching camo prints. Because the group’s lineup went by means of some infamous modifications, the matching outfits maybe served the extra sensible function of reminding individuals who, at any given time, was really in Future’s Youngster.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, y-y-y-y-y-y-y-yeah!,
