TIL after writing the main riff of Seven Nation Army, Jack White planned to save it in case he was ever asked to write a James Bond theme. Deciding this was unlikely to happen, he recorded the song anyways. Five years later, he was asked to write the theme song for the Bond film Quantum of Solace.

  1. I was at the April, 2018 Jack White show in Milwaukee when he did a surprise additional encore and played Seven Nation Army solo. It was incredible. He had already played an encore and the house lights came on. We stuck around to finish our beers while much of the crowd filed out. Some people started the SNA chant and low and behold, Jack was summoned. He cracked a joke about Milwaukeeans ought to be heading out to the bars already and then he picked up his guitar and let it rip. So fucking cool.

  2. Do all unknown and struggling songwriters hold back songs in case they inexplicably get picked to write a song for a James Bond movie? What a strangely specific scenario.
