White Stripes Band Now Yellow Stripes. Not.

The Detroit based White Stripes band claims that a recruiting ad run by the US Air Force during the Super Bowl was a ripoff of their song "Fell in Love with a Girl."  Their statement also said that "the White Stripes take strong insult and objection to the Air Force Reserve's presenting this advertisement with the implication that we licensed one of our songs to encourage recruitment during a war that we do not support."

In a later statement, the band also said they were changing their name to the Yellow Stripes. Not.
