Danger! High Voltage is one of the few songs Electric Six managed to usher into the world before dropping off the face of the mainstream forever (the other being Gay Bar). Nevertheless the band never stopped writing and touring, having released a total of total of eleven studio albums over the course of their career.

But back to Danger! High Voltage. When it was released as a single in 2002 from the album Fire, it took the radio by storm, and was received fairly well by critics. But it spawned one mystery that has never conclusively been solved. Many believe that Jack White of The White Stripes provided secondary lead vocals on the track, yet the band insists the singer was an auto mechanic named John. S. O'Leary.

Despite several contrary reports, the band's drummer at the time M repeatedly dodged questioning by saying €œMy attorney has advised us to neither confirm nor deny the presence of Jack White€. While it's entirely likely White was involved, the truth remains obscure, and therefore remains a mystery.
