Get Behind Me Satan

7 Jun, 2005
Get Behind Me SatanThe Stripes release their fifth studio album, a musical departure from their established sound. For much of the album, Jack goes acoustic with a piano-focused sound. Jack White explains why he chose the album title:

I named one of my albums “Get Behind Me Satan,” my favorite phrase Jesus said, because the triple meaning behind that is so powerful:  The idea that the devil could ‘get behind me’ as in back me up. The idea of Satan not as just some evil figure, but the idea beneath all, is get behind me, man, get with me on it.
