Although “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes is on the list, the version included in the playlist when launched is not the version by The White Stripes, but is a version from a tribute album to The White Stripes, and is attributed to the artist “Ameritz Tribute Tracks” instead. The playlist is available here.
