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 talking to myself at night
because I can't forget
Back and forth through my mind
behind a cigarette

And the message coming from my eyes
it says leave it alone

Don't want to 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 coming 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
it says find a home

I'm going to Wichita
Far from this opera forever more
I'm gonna work the straw,
make the sweat drip out of every pore
And I'm pleading, and I'm pleading,
and I'm pleading right before the Lord
All the words are gonna bleed from me
and I will think no more
And the stains coming from my blood
tell me go back home

All bios of this group should note the HUGE popularity of this tune's opening riff among sports fans.  And it is not just soccer fans--I have heard the chant at other US sporting events!
böse Gitarren 
TURN IT UP!!!!  

And the SKALD cover is just as good!  
"And the feeling coming from my bones  it says find a home"
 
thumping drum beat
 
"The representative from California has the floor" 
 
I keep hearing that every single time
8 for the song, 9 for becoming high in a soccer stadium.

You gotta being kidding me! Jack White is a mediocre guitar player at best. Does not come close to Page, Beck, Clapton.

Look, there is a HUGE void of young (under 50 years old) RnR guitar players. Any average young player that stumbles into that void, gets anointed by people under 50. Sames applies to the guy with the Foo Fighters.   

So you all please quit anointing these average guitar players. They are not that good. Geeeeeeeez.

Not quite an illusion, just some electronic FX to make Jack's guitar sound like a bass, and that's why you hear a bass line.

It doesn't actually sound like a bass guitar. Bass strings are so heavy and thick, they don't vibrate as freely as guitar strings and damp themselves quickly. Compare super-slinky guitar strings against thicker metal acoustic guitar strings.

You can hear the "melodic" sustained vibration of the guitar strings very clearly during the latter part of this song.

Is that a kazoo solo ?

He’s genius.
On that album cover,  it looks like Jack just finished bopping Meg with that white wiffle bat! She looks sad......... she should call the 7N Army to bop Jack

Dear Mr. Wind.
I'm now the ripe old age of 51 so I think I can speak to this: You're wrong. There are still plenty of guitar players who, if they had been around between 1966 and 1978, would have been considered "gods".  For example:
-Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine & tours with Bruce Springsteen)
-Jason Isbell (Solo and Drive By Truckers)
-Gary Clark Jr.
-Derek Trucks (Solo, with Amanda Shires and with Allman Brothers)
-Christone "Kingfish" Ingram
-Joe Bonamassa

Unfortunately, your argument is basically the same one we've been hearing from older generations since the beginning of time: "the music was better in my day!". I think that the truth is that guitar-based-rock is not a dominant force in popular music anymore so today's "great" guitar players are just not showcased in the same way they were in "our" day. You have to go look for them and RP does a great job of helping us old people find them.


I didn't truly believe the White Stripes only had two members until I saw them perform live in 2004. While Meg played the drums and sang 1 song (Meg is awesome by the way!) Jack ripped with his guitar while also playing the organ and singing. I wouldn't believe one person could do all that if I hadn't seen it myself. If that isn't being a talent, I don't know what is. 
My son did a rendition of this on Tuba for his middle school band concert solo.
I've been thinking there is the part:

'every single WORM got a story to tell'

Thanks for the share, and I think it's pretty cool how he used the FX to "make" a new instrument....I'm a fan...call it an 8 (though the Ben L'oncle version of this tune is a 9 to me) - Long Live RP and musical creativity!!

This is some incredible work on the bass. Quite understated but yet amazing! I don't like the White Stripes that much, but this song is pretty cool.
That's funny because there is no base guitar on the song. There is no base player in the White Stripes and Jack White doesn't play the base guitar anywhere on this album. It's an illusion!! Or whatever you would call an illusion of the ear.

I truly believe what you a saying is a closed minded statement! while guitar playing is important the over all style of the song is important as well. this song for example is not about guitar, it's about the drive of the song. If Jack White were to break out in some kind of Page like guitar solo it would not fit in this song.  Not all music has to have the long drawn out over played guitar riffs ,Which at times quite frankly annoys me. Perhaps new music now a days isn't as guitar driven as it use to be. You truly are closing yourself off to some wonderful music!! 
I was having a dream about this song this morning as I struggled to go back to sleep for one more hour before getting out of bed.  Very tedious. Like a Chantax dream.

Always a fun song!{#Bananajam}
Back in the '90s, Jack White played drums in Goober and the Peas, a little-known cowpunk band from Detroit. The band was known for its dark, offbeat sense of humor.

My favorite tune is Hot Women (Cold Beer):

I love hot hot women
And I love cold beer
I like hot hot women and cold cold beer
I love red hot women and ice cold beer
Yeeoh!

Gotta love a song with lyrics like that!

Second that, dwhayslett.  His is a viewpoint which suggests RnR was BEST in MY generation and anyone new or young cannot even come close.  Really?  I guess he shares Homer Simpsons belief..."why do we need new bands, rock n roll attained perfection in 1974!"
I don't know the White Stripes much, but if this track is anything to go by the guitarist is only average and no way up there with the greats.

A good tune nonetheless

The riff gets played to death by a wide range of recorded instruments and voices at sports arenas and stadia all over the United States.

That is absolutely no justification for giving a low rating to the original and wonderous version of this rock and roll classic.

...so that must mean, you dig "Jack Straw" by the Grateful Dead?

as the verse goes:

Jack Straw from Wichita cut his buddy down,
And dug for him a shallow grave and laid his body down.
Half a mile from Tucson, by the morning light,
One man gone and another to go, my old buddy you're moving much too slow.

Are you a sports fan? Those seven notes on the bass which are the signature of this song are now a widespread chant at US sporting events.  The whole crowd goes "Whooa-wha-uh-uh-wha-whoa-oooh".  Pretty cool.

In my day to learnt Louie Louie as your first guitar lick, then I think it became Smoke on the Water, now I am hearing this one. Play on.
In some small measure the neanderthal drumming sorta makes this one. Love Ben L'Oncle Soul's cover.

There's a cool bit in It Might Get Loud where The Edge asks Jack White how he came about developing the lick at the beginning of this song. Then we see Jack, The Edge and Jimmy Page all jamming on Seven Nation Army.  Great movie.  Worth watching.
