No, Jack White Isn't Sick of Hearing "Seven Nation Army"

Jun 12, 2014

Sorry, Jack White trolls — you're going to have to try a little harder to piss off the former White Stripes frontman, who stopped by Conan on Wednesday to promote his new solo album, Lazaretto. Despite the worldwide popularity "Seven Nation Army" — it's been covered by cruise ships, become an Italian soccer anthem, and White can't even catch baseball games without hearing the iconic dummmm dum dum dum dum dumm dum — his feelings on the song haven't soured one bit.

"People come up to me all the time, and they think it makes me mad for some reason," he told Conan O'Brien. "I don't know why they think it upsets me. As a songwriter, that's the greatest thing that could ever happen. It becomes folk music."
