How do you know that you’ve made a name for yourself as a musician in the music world? When over 70,000 people sing along with you, one of your hit songs and that’s exactly what happened last night during Jack White’s set at Bonnaroo when he went on to perform The White Stripes’ hit song, “Seven Nation Army” on his own.
To begin with, White performed a 26-song, two and a half hour set which surpassed the normally scheduled time slot by 45 minutes. The set included songs from his career including songs from The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather and of course his solo catalog and a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “The Lemon Song.”
Check out the (short) video from last night, where the audience helped back White up for “Seven Nation Army.”
Want to teach your kiddies about good rock bands early in life so they don’t end up worshiping radio’s latest cash cow? Well, the popular “rock songs turned into lullabies” company, Rockabye Baby, are back with a brand new rock song turned lullaby and this time it’s “Seven Nation Army.”
Lullaby Renditions of the White Stripes turns the duo’s hit song into something suitable for little kids to listen to and enjoy even though “Seven Nation Army” is an enjoyable song. The Shite Stripes are in good company though with this lullaby; the company has featured bands like The Beatles, Nirvana, U2, Radiohead and more than 50 others with their hit instrumental.
Check out the video of the lullaby rendition of “Seven Nation Army” right here (and it’s so cute):
