Icky Thump Giveaway


By now you should have already heard the White Stripes' new album Icky Thump. It's just classic White Stripes rock 'n' roll and we can't get enough. We also have a sweet White Stripes Icky Thump prize package to give away to one lucky soul. Yeah, we're talking limited edition Icky Thump t-shirt, poster, pin and of course the album.

Here's the catch: to win you have to tell us what an Icky Thump is. Follow the contact link at the bottom of the page, select "Icky Thump Giveaway" from the pull-down menu and let us know before Monday, 23 July 2007. There's no right answer but we'll choose the most original. Pictures might help, or maybe we don't want to look at your Icky Thumps.

Update: We have a winner! We received plenty of disgusting answers and even more explanations of where the term actually comes from, but we thought this was the best because it made us giggle (without completely vomiting): An icky thump is the terrible, rhythmic pounding you hear when your parents are having sex in an adjacent room. Add extra ickiness points if there's any audible dirty talk.
