Producer: Jack White
Album: Elephant

A skinny, pale devotee of the Delta blues, Stripes frontman Jack White probably never said, "Bro, what I really want to do is record a jock jam!" Still, that's exactly what the first single off the band's Elephant album became. With its marching bass line, defiant lyrics ("I'm gonna fight 'em off/A seven-nation army couldn't hold me back"), and devastating guitar explosions, this hell-raiser of a lo-fi rock song could amp up a comatose librarian.
