'Tis the season of the beef. Just as the dust was settling from the Meek Mill–Drake feud, Nicki Minaj took an "oh, no, she didn't" swipe at Miley Cyrus during her VMA acceptance speech. And last night, not to be outdone, the Black Keys and Jack White reignited their ongoing neo-blues-rock squabble.

Keys drummer Patrick Carney claimed on Twitter that White "tried to fight me" in an NYC bar. "Quit whining to the Internet and speak face to face like a human being," sniped back White. The two parties have since posted tweets indicating that all is now copacetic, but it remains to be seen whether the detente will last. Here's our look back at the history of this epic feud.
