The White Stripes have released two more classic Saturday Night Live performances, following from the release of their Greatest Hits album.

The two performances, Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground and We’re Going to Be Friends, can be seen below.

The 2002 performances came before those done in support of their 2005 record Get Behind Me Satan, videos of which The White Stripes released last week. The approach on the SNL stage is more akin to their earlier recorded material, especially on Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground – where Jack White stays on the guitar for the whole song, rather than switching to piano as he did on VH1 in 2005.

The White Stripes have also released several international single B-sides to digital streaming services, including live versions of The Denial Twist and Lovesick, an acoustic version of You Don’t Know What Love Is (You Just Do as You’re Told), and more.
