Jack White has discussed the popularity of Seven Nation Army.
The former The White Stripes frontman released the track with Meg White back in 2003 and it's since gone on to be become ubiquitous at sporting events across the world.
Asked about the phenomenon of people chanting his single, the rocker said: "The interesting thing about that, I think some person in music said they thought it was the biggest multicultural hit of all time because there's no words, that they're chanting a melody and there's no need to know the language or to know the words of the song."
He added: "So that kind of gets up there with the 'Na Na Na Na' from [The Beatles] Hey Jude or something like that where you don't need to know any different languages. It's the language of music across the board and that sort of becomes folk music at that point.
"Who could ask for more than that as a songwriter?"
The Third Man Records Boss also discussed the release of his fourth solo album, which includes single The White Raven.
