Released 20 Years Ago – ‘SEVEN NATION ARMY’ By THE WHITE STRIPES (More Than 554 Million Views On YouTube)

3 May 2023

THE WHITE STRIPES was/is one of the greatest bands of the 21st Century.
Meg and Jack were a mean blues-rock machine who released 6 albums
between 1999 and 2007.

One of their best LPs, without a shadow of a doubt, is their
breaktrough one ELEPHANT released 20 years ago (1 April 2003).

The opening track and also the album’s first single SEVEN NATION ARMY
(more than 1 billion streams so far on Spotify – 1.290.780.863 to be exact)
made them famous around the globe. It was at #1 on the UK indie charts
and #1 on the US Alternative Charts.

The accompanying video (more than 554 million views on YouTube, so far)
was a cool rock ‘n’ roll one with, of course, Meg and Jack, as the charismatic
stars in the middle.

Band: The White Stripes – Jack and Meg White
Active: 1997-2011
AlbumGet Behind Me Satan – the duo’s fifth LP
Released: 7 June 2005 – 15 years ago today

Pitchfork wrote: “On their fifth album, the White Stripes’ ambitions finally seem to outpace their limited musical vocabulary. Making an almost-entirely clean break with the jet-fueled blues-rock of Elephant and De Stijl, they forsake electric guitar on all but a couple of tracks, working instead with pianos, acoustic guitars, marimbas, and other assorted oddball percussion.”
