To record their third album Rubber Factory, The Black Keys leased space on the second floor of a former General Tire factory in their hometown of Akron. They named the studio Sentient Sound.

The photo on the cover of their single for "Lonely Boy" off their 2011 album El Camino shows a bulldozer in an empty lot where the factory used to be before it was torn down in 2010.
