No Hassle Night

Album: Horehound (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • The Dead Weather are an American alternative rock quartet featuring The White Stripes/Raconteurs' Jack White on drums and vocals, the Kills' Alison Mosshart on vocals, the Raconteurs' Jack Lawrence on bass and Queens of the Stone Age's Dean Fertita on guitar. This is a track from their debut album, Horehound.
  • On this song Jack White goes crash cymbal crazy. White's last booking as a drummer was with the Detroit punk outfit Goober and the Peas, aged 19. He told The Guardian July 3, 2009: "Playing drums feels like coming home for me. Even during the White Stripes I thought: 'I'll do this for now, but I'm really a drummer.' That's what I'll put on my passport application."
