The Raconteurs – Level (music video)

I’m a big Jack White fan, but I’ll be honest. While I wanted to be excited by The Raconteurs, their stuff never really got me fist pumping. Except for the video version of the song Level. It’s just some serious, in your face rock n’ roll guitar riffing. It’s live, and as a result, a […]
