Exactly! It's like they're possessed and they're these pure channels for music and energy. It was really amazing to me too. Even if I didn't particularly like the song the experience of living it through them was absolutely captivating. And their relationship was really touching for me too. How they create this thing together and they seem to work together perfectly for what the White Stripes is and is trying to do. I just saw another documentary with him in it called It Might Get Loud (a conversation between Jack White, Jimmy Page and The Edge) and he played his favorite song, this song by Son House, and he said that the White Stripes is basically just trying to play this song in their own way. Really interesting.

After watching this clip, I was really pumped to see this, too. I hadn't ever seen any of their stuff live, so it was hypnotic to see how raw and emotive the music is on stage.
So many songs where Jack moves from the front mic to the mic facing Meg, and it's clear he's not just singing the song, but singing/screaming the lyrics at her, or she's screaming the lyrics at him vicariously through his voice. Like "white moon". Like "jolene". Like "black jack davy". I've never seen anything like that kind of catharsis, at least this bluntly.
And that soccer-stadiumish "7 man army" chant gives me chills every time.
