7. Jack White - 'Freedom at 21'
This was the year the White Stripes died and Jack White the solo artist was born. It was a bittersweet time. He'll never recreate the magic of the Stripes, but his solo work is closer to that sound than he ever got with any of his other bands. Launching a mega world tour featuring songs from his whole career didn't hurt matters, either. "Freedom at 21" is a clear standout from Blunderbuss, the one that earned a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Song.
