That's Where It's At

Lyrics Information


Performed by The White Stripes
Written by The White Stripes



Jack White:

    "We had this [other] song called 'That's Where It's At' that we didn't put on the first album. [The lyric] was, "All you people know/Just where it's at now/walking down the street with a baseball bat now." It's about the kids in the neighborhood. We weren't going to use that song anymore, and I played that chord, and 'I smell a rat' popped out again. Meg played it with me and I started singing the lyrics from that other song about the kids in the neighborhood again, and we said, 'This is perfect.'"

Unreleased song that was later incorporated into [I Think I Smell A Rat]
