White Stripes 'Conquest' backwards is badass

YouTube proves Jack White is even more awesome in reverse.

As all-encompassing as my  love  for  Jack  White  is, even I have my occasional limits (no, really). One of those limits is The White Stripes' cover of Conquest, off 2007 album Icky Thump.

It kinda sucks. I mean, it's sort of passable up until about 1.06... then it sucks. Then it gets good again around 2.30... then it goes straight back to Sucktown.

The video isn't much better.

But today I discovered something amazing. Thanks to an enterprising soul on YouTube, I now know that Conquest is 187% improved by playing the song backwards. 

What do you think?
