The White Stripes Release Two Classic ‘SNL’ Performances Online

Band drops “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground” and “We’re Going to Be Friends” performances from 2002

The White Stripes continue their Greatest Hits release celebration with two classic Saturday Night Live performances, which have been uploaded to NBC.com as well as the band’s official YouTube channel.

Both performances, “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground” and “We’re Going to Be Friends,” are from Jack and Meg White’s one and only musical guest slot as a band on SNL, during the October 19th, 2002 episode hosted by the late John McCain.

Additionally, the White Stripes have released a whole slew of international single B-sides to digital streaming services, including live versions of “The Denial Twist” and “Lovesick,” an acoustic version of “You Don’t Know What Love Is (You Just Do as You’re Told),” and the High Contrast mix version of “Blue Orchid.” See the full list of B-sides below.

The band have also released an 11-track live album, The White Stripes Live at 40 Watt, recorded on September 27th, 1999, at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia. The album is available exclusively via the official Third Man Records Bandcamp through Sunday, December 20th. Proceeds will directly benefit Fair Fight, the voter participation advocacy group founded by Stacey Abrams, and their ongoing work to protect the rights of eligible voters in the upcoming Georgia runoff elections.

Just last week, the White Stripes unveiled two other classic live performances, this time from the Get Behind Me Satan era.
