Watch: Jack White covers Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead”

on June 30, 2014, 7:00pm

Jack White previously expressed his affinity for Kanye West and his latest album, Yeezus, which might explain why he and his band chose to open their show in Dublin with a cover of “Black Skinhead”. Similar to his cover of “Enter Sandman”, the performance was strictly an instrumental and much too short, but still cool nonetheless. Watch fan-shot footage below; the “Black Skinhead” bit is right at the beginning. He eventually segues into “High Ball Stepper”.

Hopefully this will catch Kanye’s attention and he’ll finally return Jack’s call.

The Dublin show also featured The Kills, who joined Jack on-stage to perform “Love Interruption” and “Goodnight, Irene”. Eventually, Jack played past curfew, forcing the venue to pull the plug. He kept playing anyway.
