You know that song with the riff? I've heard it's a pretty good riff. "Seven Nation Army" is perhaps the most iconic White Stripes song there is, responsible for Jack White thinking many great things of himself, and this 7" pronounces that greatness, plus a b-side called "Good To Me", a cover by way of Brendan Benson. The riff is in tact. It has not been removed from the song. We still have the riff.

8/10 Tom Customer review, 31st May 2018
The White Stripes and Brendan Benson have a long history together, but back when their respective albums White Blood Cells (2001) and Lapalco (2002) came out I didn't know that. I did however love both albums. So when the White Stripes returned with 'Seven Nation Army', the first single from their forthcoming album Elephant (2003) I was pretty excited and bought the single (back when people used to buy singles). More exciting still was the fact that the White Stripes covered Brendan Benson's 'Good to Me' on the b-side. Everyone knows 'Seven Nation Army' - it's a decent song - but I suppose there's a novelty in buying this 7" for the raw cover of 'Good to Me' which benefits greatly from Meg White's fantastic, primitive drumming.
After this Jack White and Brendan Benson would go on to form the Raconteurs, a band I was not all that excited by. Interesting, eh?
