The White Stripes

intend to take 'strong action' against the US Air Force following an advert used during Sunday's Super Bowl.

The ad, according to the duo, uses a version of their 2002 single 'Fell In Love With A Girl'. Via a message on their webiste, Jack and Meg state the track was 're-recorded and used without permission'.

'The White Stripes take strong insult and objection to the Air Force Reserve presenting this advertisement with the implication that we licensed one of our songs to encourage recruitment during a war that we do not support,' they said.

'The White Stripes support this nation's military, at home and during times when our country needs and depends on them. We simply don't want to be a cog in the wheel of the current conflict, and hope for a safe and speedy return home for our troops.'
