“Seven Nation Army”–The White Stripes

The White Stripes – (live Harald Schmidt Show)

It is said, between Moses and Moses there was no one unto Moses. Epic greatness comes with millennium long periods of waiting.

In this case parts Jimmy Page and parts Robert Plant and parts Dylan and like them pure creative genius, Jack White honors the masters who came before him, but makes his sound completely new.

This is the White Stripes song that opened my eyes.

Seven Nation Army w/ Catch Hell Blues Intro

I’m gonna fight ’em off
A seven nation army couldn’t hold me back
They’re gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back
And I’m talkin’ to myself at night
Because I can’t forget
Back and forth through my mind
Behind a cigarette
And the message comin’ from my eyes says leave it alone…
Don’t wanna hear about it
Every single one’s got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the hounds of hell
And if I catch it comin’ back my way
I’m gonna serve it to you
And that ain’t what you want to hear
But that’s what I’ll do
And the feeling coming from my bones says find a home…
I’m going to Wichita
Far from this opera forevermore
I’m gonna work the straw
Make the sweat drip out of every pore
And I’m bleeding, and I’m bleeding, and I’m bleeding
Right before the lord
All the words are gonna bleed from me
And I will think no more
And the stains comin’ from my blood tell me “Go back home”…

Audioslave with a great Live cover.
