I'm interested in the influences of The White Stripes

I've loved the White Stripes for a long time. But lately it's becoming a borderline obsession. I'm very bummed I missed their Portland, Maine concert.
Anyway. I get all the blues influences, and the straight ahead rock influences (I think Meg sounds like I think John Bonham should have sounded).
But I hear, I think, things that sound like punk and detroit rock and really, a lot of stuff I don't know anything about. Maybe The Stooges or MC5? These are bands that I sort of blew by. Garage Rock? That's good?
So I'm looking for recordings I could check out that would fill in that background for me. I think it's angry 3 chord rock but I'm not really sure.
Any record tips?
