I first heard about this band a long time ago and they sounded interesting. I was interested mostly because I like most of the White Stripes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_White_Stripes)' music, and the common link between the two bands is Jack White (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_White).

The Raconteurs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raconteurs) are a relatively new band, formed in 2005, and consists of musicians known mostly for previous work.
They're classified as 'Alternative Rock,' and I guess that suits them best. They do have an alternative sound about them, but they do rock out in more than a few tracks. I first actually heard this band on the VMAs, and downloaded the album that same night. I would be safe to say that they sound a bit like The White Stripes, but with a little more edge, and a lot more musicianship.
