MUSIC: Seven Nation Army Covers

So the good looking fellow above is the Irish Anarchist, Jack White. He was one of the founding members of the Irish Citizen Army. If you ask me, he looks like one dangerous mother. So, what does a early 20th century militant have to do with music or art? Well, in honor of his background, I present to you five versions of The White Stripes "Seven Nation Army" song.

::: The White Stripes - Seven Nation Army (original)
::: The Flaming Lips - Seven Nation Army (cover)
::: Nostalgia 77 - Seven Nation Army (cover)
::: Hard Fi - Seven Nation Army (cover)
::: Damien Rice and Vyvienne Long - Seven Nation Army (cover)

Some do more justice to the original, some less. I've been into the jazzier/lounge version by Nostalgia 77 of late. (These can be found all over the place, just thought I'd get 'em all together). Fight on.
