Jack White: “Fuck You, You Hip Motherfuckers!”

"Why don't you rock the fuck out?"

"Maybe I should go grab those free drinks and shove them down your throats, you hip motherfuckers!"

If you've ever been to one of those hipper than thou NY/LA/London/wherever shows, where the audience (or at least the front rows) seem to be filled with A-listers more intent on being seen than seeing the show, you can sympathize with Jack White's on mic rampage during a Dead Weather show at NYC's Don Hill nightclub. Liv Tyler, rock royalty Alexandra Richards, Shaun White and Mary-Kate Olsen were all in attendance according to The Daily News.

By the end of the show White had reportedly calmed down. "I'm sorry I blew up at you guys earlier," he told the audience. "Thanks for coming out." An informal poll of Hypebot readers showed a preference for Jack's initial response.

  1. While I agree with Jack’s sentiments regarding these ‘hip motherfuckers’, these events can be very boring indeed, what I really want to know is what did he think he signed up for when he decided to play said event ?
    Sounds more like a case of needing to manage expectations rather than flogging a dead horse
    But on the flipside, if this little bit of PR does anything to increase the overall get down decadence in today’s society then more power to him, lash out even more!

  2. Jack’s too smart to throw a tantrum without knowing that a bunch of rags would write about it.
    I think this fits perfectly for him and his band. Dead Weather’s doing well on tour, they don’t NEED the corporate-sponsored gigs. Except the festivals, maybe, but they’ve just finished doing a bunch of those.

  3. The guy’s a tart, a big time drama queen tart. And judging by his comments on the vid connected by @oldenno above, a bigot, too… ‘faggots’?
    If he doesn’t want anyone looking at him, he should get the fuck off the stage… good grief! There are plenty of pubs he can take his bar band to play at, maybe learn a few covers… John Cougar Mellencamp tunes will probably go down well…
