No. 7: White Stripes, ‘Seven Nation Army’ – Top 21st Century Hard Rock Songs

V2 Records

In 2003, the White Stripes were ready to go from everyone’s favorite blog and buzz band to a full-on chart smashing act, and ‘Seven Nation Army,’ the lead single from 2003’s ‘Elephant’ album, was the song that would do it for them.

Meg White’s pounding tribal drumbeat throughout the track laid the groundwork, while Jack White‘s blistering guitar and raw passion made the song instantly memorable. In fact, it’s now a regular in the playlist of most college bands at athletic events and a stadium anthem. The track also won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Song and propelled the White Stripe’s ‘Elephant’ disc to the Best Alternative Music Album Grammy win.

Next Song: No. 6
