    One of the greatest, simplest and catchiest songs ever.
    It's beauty is its simplicity.
    Played to death probably.
    Just brilliant from a brilliant band.
    One of the best live acts I've seen as well.
    Hypnotic video. Nothing bad about this song at all.

    It's also pretty simple but beautifully effective

    We did a guess the intro music quiz at work. Lad wrote down "Salvation Army" :lol:

    That's where the title comes from. As a boy Jack White mispronounced salvation army as seven nation army

    Yes another classic. They done the simple things so well, better than most. That's the genius of that band.
     
  7. Two million voices

    Two million voices Full Back

    Not even their best song.

    This is true.
    But it doesn't have to be their best to be one of the GOAT.
    As far back as you wanna go songwriting teams like Lieber and Stoller or Holland Dozier Holland, ever Stock Aitken Waterman would've killed for a tune likr Seven Nation Army. It's a truly global smash. The fact it became a football chant sung the world over is testament to its simplicity and its catchiness.
    A real modern classic. One of the all time greats.
    Stands up against any song from any era.
    Whilst I don't think Seven Nation Army is the best White Stripes song, as a comparison , She Loves You is nowhere near the best Beatles song but its their biggest and one of the most raw and simple ones and stands up against any song from any era.

    But when you actually think about it...

  12. Two million voices

    Still not their best song.
