The fifth full-length studio album by American Alternative/Blues Rock band.
The album marked a distinct change from its guitar-heavy 2003 predecessor, "Elephant". With its reliance on piano-driven melodies and experimentation with marimba on "The Nurse" and "Forever For Her (Is Over For Me)", "Get Behind Me Satan" plays down the Punk, Garage rock and Blues influences, that dominated earlier White Stripes albums.
Frontman Jack White plays with different technique than in the past, replacing electric guitar with piano, mandolin, and acoustic guitar on all but a handful of tracks, as his usual riff-conscious lead guitar style is overtaken by a predominantly rhythmic approach.
"Get Behind Me Satan" entered the U.S. and UK charts at No. 3, ranking higher in the U.S. charts than their previous records. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked it the third-best album of the year, and it received the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album in 2006. In 2006, the album was included in "1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die", edited by Robert Dimery, but was removed in the 2007 edition. As of February 2007, "Get Behind Me Satan" had sold 850,000 units in the United States.
