It may only be six notes long but it looks like the collective creation and distribution of songs is still a reality.

It looks like another non-story picked up & repeated ad nauseum
I suppose, with the supposed links to anti-Semitism, we should be glad they didn't think to set it to "Oh Solomon Levi" (tra-la-la-la-la-la)

Glastonbury is a high-profile event, and for this song to take off there (and at similar gatherings) is something new.

I don't think the crowd at Woodstock thought up jingles about John Kennedy, did they?

Anti-Semitic?
Don't you mean anti-Israeli treatment of Palestinians?

It does actually resemble the beginning of "Old Solomon Levi" (which is a Jewish song from the East End of London, though it's gone a bit further). Dunno if that's where the White Stripes got it.

Solomon Levi (1885)

"Words and music by Fred Seaver published by Oliver Ditson & Co. sung by Sheet Music Singer, Fred Feild"

I am sure there's more to it than that - Solomon Levy was a real person and there were good reasons why he might have inspired an anonymously improvised song.

More on the Glastonbury event;

There are disgusted responses in the Spectator and the Telegraph as you might expect; it looks like it did the trick like a good political chant should. If it ends up doing for Theresa May what Lilliburlero did for James VII&II, nobody's going to complain it was a bit dull.

Quite a painful listen is that though. I'm not a football watcher, I suppose those are the accepted notes now? And I'd never heard of the White Stripes.
The original "proper" tune is a lot better.
I don't expect many will go back to check the White Stripes tune.

I wimped out and prefer the rather tame but more melodic Rockabye Baby! version of the tune to sing along with

I'm looking forward to the next Conservative Conference video
"Oh, Theresa May-yay" ?

Oh Jeremy
You're going to be
Prime Minister one day

We've had enough
Of poorer stuff
Goodbye to Mrs May
