100 Best Songs of the 2000s

The White Stripes, 'Fell In Love With a Girl'

58. The White Stripes, 'Fell In Love With a Girl'

Love, Jack White style: On this 2001 single — a key moment in the garage-rock revival — White's completely smitten, howling about her red curls over a ragged guitar groove that sounds like a rusty Impala barreling through a bad part of Detroit. Jack's warped blues genius is evident; so is Meg's asymmetrical bounce. Together the pair would make more popular songs, but none this exuberant.
