"The Bane Rendition" by The Raconteurs from the CD single Steady, As She Goes

The Raconteurs is a new band that most notably features Jack White, formerly of the White Stripes. They wear their 70s rock influences proudly on their sleeves, and they're one of the precious few bands out there today that are keeping real rock and roll alive. A tidbit from Wikipedia: "The Raconteurs were forced to rename themselves as "The Saboteurs" for the Australian market when it was discovered that a Queensland band was already using the name "Raconteurs". The Queensland band refused to give up their name for the amount they were offered, and instead tried to extract a higher price from the Raconteurs' record company." I wonder how much was offered?
