Corporation

Album: Boarding House Reach (2018)
  • This bluesy and funky garage-rocker features Jack White shouting out improvised lines that are basically an anti-Donald Trump runt. He told UK newspaper The Sun:

    "I just walked out there and started singing whatever came in to my head and, shockingly, the first think I thought of was Donald Trump!

    He symbolizes everything that's bad right now, especially in America. 'Corporation' may be a household word in the house he grew up in, whereas in the houses most Americans grew up, that's a pipe dream. You can't just start a corporation.

    I thought it would be funny for someone on the street to be walking and talking to his friends and saying, 'Hey, let's start a corporation.' It's hard enough for someone in America just to open a corner store or a liquor store."
