Meanwhile, the rocker recently hit the headlines for an unexpected reason after a game show contestant mistook him for Eminem.

A picture of the White Stripes rocker was shown on US quiz show, Jeopardy!, along with the clue: "A recent vinyl resurgence has been aided by this musician, who built a pressing plant in his Detroit hometown."

But the gameshow, which requires contestants to provide their answers as questions, took a funny turn when a contestant Julie buzzed in and said: "Who Is Eminem?"

Watch the moment here: 

Luckily order was soon restored when her competitor Rebecca answered correctly. 

While it's pretty random to mix up the two artists, Julie can be forgiven for not being a fan of music. Plus, with the US rapper actually being Detroit-based, you could even congratulate her for making an educated guess...

... Which is more than can be said for what will always be dubbed the most stupid answer in the history of game shows ever.
