Released: March 2003

Jack and Meg White became proper bona fide megastars on the back of this song, propelled by arguably the finest riff of the decade by anyone. Its popularity was such that football fans the world over continue to adapt the refrain to make their own particular chant. High praise indeed. Named after what Jack called the Salvation Army as a child, the song is now recognised as a proper, grade A classic. Recorded in London for about two pence, it still sounds amazing.
