THE White Stripes have slammed Green Day and My Chemical Romance for "stealing" their colour combination.

Frontman Jack White and his ex-wife Meg White dress in red, white and black and use the colours for their album and single covers.

Jack moans, "Recently so many bands have adopted the red, white and black colour scheme that it's harder for us to stand out.

"Green Day, My Chemical Romance, there's plenty of them there."
