The Best by White Stripes and "Everyone knows about it from the Queen of England to the Hounds of Hell" - MusicManiac69
Doom, doom-doom doom doom-doom, doom,... In my head all day long after I first heard it...
A phenomenal song. One of the top 100 songs since 2000, easy. Almost everyone has heard this iconic song even if you don't know who wrote it, you've at least heard the opening and you can recognize it easily. This song is by far white stripes best as much as I love all their other stuff they just never surpassed this and the ratings show.V17 Comments
Such a raw energy. There's only three words to describe this song: Short, but sweet.
OH My God... maybe the perfect song... Not only the greatest white stripes song, but one of the greatest songs by ANY band!
Love love love it but icky thump has the best beat ever!
Total energy trip. Awesome!V8 Comments
It's hard to decide between Seven nation army and Blue orchid but this is the best song of all time this song stays in your head for ever with the keyboard at it's beat and the guitar going for it and Meg pounding on the drums nothing get's better than this. - macrox16
this song is so different and unique, i love it. they are amazing and the sound of this song is incredible. - xrrrockstar
Everyone will vote for Seven Nation Army, but this is quintessential White Stripes.
The only song I can listen to more than seven nation armyV6 Comments
This song is so damn awesome! My personal favorite! Too rocking, pure white stripes at their best.V4 Comments
Let me tell you all about a song that made my head explode.
It was loud and it was hard as rock with just a little bit of roll.
With just a little bit of roll.
This dirty sound at the beginning and the muted parts in the bridge are so cool. And the contrast to the calm and peaceful verse makes this song the best of WS.
Seven nation army is overrated. Sorry it's true.V1 Comment
Jack's guitar work in this song is his best and always be his best. The song is one big blues rock jam fest and kicks everyone's ass just by listening to it. This song is what makes Jack one of the best guitarists out there.
Just listen to the guitar. LISTEN TO IT! The lyrics ain't too bad either. Probably one of meg's best songs too. You can feel the groove
This song rocks so hard! The best song I've ever heard based on the 12 bar blues. Very cleverly done, and the solos... Fantastic Jack.
The carousel that drives the album Elephant, and around which all the other songs revolve.V3 Comments
This one has to be the greatest
Although seven nation army is great, this song was featured on an episode of the simpsons, and thats how i fell in love with it
I actually think this is even better than Seven Nation Army as crazy as that may sound. His vice sounds more "natural" in this whereas in Seven Nation Army it sounds a bit high.
Second only to Seven Nation Army! The video is amazing too, one of the best ever in my opinion!
This number 2 for meV3 Comments
Totally awesome and also magnificent in a mind blowing way. Music that reminds you just how good rock'n'roll and life can be! Jack & Meg make music to fill your veins! WOW!
Just a lovely arrangement all the way through. Awesome lyrics, and epic musicianship! Jack White once again shows his range as a musicianV1 Comment
Simple Sweet just love it true classic will live long
Reminds me of classic rock
hard to choose since all their songs are pretty good, but thoses lyrics are awesome. jack's a genius. "the boat yeah you know she's rocking it, and the true yeah you know there's no stopping it. " - ohright
I can't believe this isn't higher on the list! It has amazing lyrics, guitar, and it's 'the white stripes' all over! This song got me hooked on the band, and it remains a favorite.V1 Comment
I saw Napoleon dynamite a while back and then got into the White Stripes recently. You can imagine my reaction when I heard this song and realized my favorite Napoleon Dynamite song was by them. I love it, it's so cute.
Haha best song in napoleon dynamite it was mine and many others introduction to the greatness that is the white stripes I am always saddened that they broke up but they will be back
Is a very good song, so nice and lovely. I wish everyone could have a good friend, not just someone funny
Very good lyric folk song! When I heard it 1 time it became my favorite son
Easily could be top 10 at least, this is one of the most under appreciated song by the white stripes. Really guys common nowV4 Comments
I have no idea how this song isn't up there with seven nation army, It's the catchiest song The White Stripes have done! - Tobzz
Best and catchiest song. This is the first song I heard by the white stripes.V2 Comments
The opening riff is too good to be denied at least a top 15 spot. 24th is unacceptable. With the great lyrics and the fact that it's surrounded by other great songs should really further this song up this chart.
It really is a toss-up between Catch Hell Blues and Icky Thump. I love me some slide guitar. Jack does the blues unlike anyone in popular music today. - thediredamsel
One of the best blues song in 2000s. It doesn't sound right that it is ninth.
This song is just completely insane and I love it.
Everything about this song is EPIC.V3 Comments
Viva Kate Moss, Viva Sofia Coppola. Seductive and Involving Music.V2 Comments
Surprised this doesn't have more votes. The middle section is in my opinion one of the heaviest passages ever recorded. Great lyrics too.
Although nothing extraordinary, the guitar playing throughout is hauntingly beautiful coupled with great, emotional lyrics.
Always loved this song! As mentioned before, the riff is probably the best part of the song.V1 Comment
The studio version is good, but incomparable to the live version on Under Great White Northern Lights. That version of the song is one of the craziest and most intense songs I've ever heard. Honestly blows me away every time I hear it.
"come and sit with me and talk awhile
Let me see your pretty little smile
Put your troubles in a little pile
And I will sort them out for you
I'll fall in love with you
I think I'll marry you... "
