Hear Jack White take to “Kanye West-esque rant” at Boston show

White popped jokes about Foo Fighters and Rolling Stone in a three minute speech.

Last night, Jack White played a gig at Fenway Park in Boston, taking to the stage by running off on a four minute, ultra-sarcastic rant.

Targets on his speech included Foo Fighters and Rolling Stone - for the latter, we went off on a fake advertisement for the publication, shouting “brought to you by the Kardashian family -” and “15 outfits that will blow your mind that Taylor Swift wore this month -”

He initially declared that “most performers don’t use microphones anymore,” when taking to the stage. He said Foo Fighters were guilty of “playing the same parts” on two guitars in order to cover up mistakes.

Eventually the speech ended with the statement: “OK, I’m officially supposed to stop now, because this is becoming a Kanye West-esque rant. Because apparently, nowadays, you aren’t allowed to speak to your own fans about anything, lest it be a rant. So forget ISIS, forget the war in the Middle East, forget any problems at home, forget gay marriage, forget everything you ever thought about everything. This not a rant. This is just me saying, HELLO CLEVELAND!”

Recently Jack White aired a dapper video for his new single, ‘Would You Fight For My Love?’. Watch that here.
