Listen to a rare recording of Jack White covering Blondie's "One Way or Another" from 1997

An ultra rare recording of Jack White has been released. back in 1997, the then teenage Jack White recorded a demo tape in a group called 400 Pounds of Punk.  The tape is called He Once Ate a Small Child and the four-song demo included a hidden cover of Blondie’s “One Way Or Another.”

Third Man Records co-found Ben Blackwell shared the tape form his personal collection and says the cassette, “is as far as I can tell, the rarest physical release of a Jack White performance. And prior to the mention here, the release was completely undocumented. I doubt more than a half-dozen people even knew about it.”

The song is definitely late-90s teenager punk (which I love because I was late 90s punk!), but White’s vocals are front and center.
