Lyrically, White's need for control often takes the traditional trajectory of wanting women to be quiet and submissive.
We can see this pattern emerging in Stripes lyrics early on.
"Two black gadgets in her hand are all she thinks about," White spits about a female antagonist on "Freedom at 21," before getting Pat-Robertson-preachy: "No responsibility, no guilt or morals cloud her judgment." There are other strange transgressions by women against men on Blunderbuss.
During the opener "Missing Pieces," a girl figuratively amputates White's limbs.
Perhaps it bubbles up in his strictly color-coded set décor and on his current tour for Blunderbuss, where he's switching between all-male and all-female backing bands based on his own whims.
No matter how they feel, where they are or who's in front of them, they will stand and deliver.
But she's come by this in a way that's not on his terms, so she's a villain.
What's the real-world upshot of Jack White's need for control?
Women have long been up to no good in the eccentric world of Jack White's songs.
But on Blunderbuss, his solo album out this week, they finally indulge in White's most famous bugaboo: cell phones.
