TORONTO, ON - SEPTEMBER 18: Musician Jack White attends the "The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights" screening held at Elign Theatre during the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival on September 18, 2009 in Toronto, Canada.

As Jack White has just released his fourth solo album, Fear Of The Dawn and is preparing the fifth, Entering Heaven Alive, we decided to take a look back at his career, going back to the White Stripes’ debut in 1999.

“Fell In Love With A Girl” from 2001’s ‘White Blood Cells,’ was their one-minute fifty seconds long breakthrough, and it was a definite preview of things to come: simple, almost primitive, but insanely catchy rock and roll that cared nothing for trends. But few could have predicted that the White Stripes would become arena headliners, or that Jack would have a discography that includes two other bands, solo albums and collaborations with everyone from Elton John to Nas, the Insane Clown Posse to the Muppets. 

In honor of Jack’s obsession with the number three, we thought we’d give you a list of his (roughly) 333 best minutes of music, including the White Stripes, the Raconteurs, the Dead Weather, his solo stuff, artists he’s produced, and some of his collaborations.
