Yeah Yeah Yeahs Overview


The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are an American indie rock band formed in New York City in 2000. Since their inception, the band has been composed of vocalist and pianist Karen O, guitarist and keyboardist Nick Zinner and drummer Brian Chase, who are complemented in live performances by second guitarist David Pajo, who joined as a touring member in 2009 and replaced Imaad Wasif who had previously held this role. According to an interview that aired during the ABC network's Live from Central Park SummerStage series, the band's name was taken from modern New York City vernacular. The band has recorded three studio albums; the first, "Fever to Tell", was released in 2003. The second, "Show Your Bones", was released in 2006 and was named the second best album of the year by NME. Their third studio album, "It's Blitz!", was released on March 31, 2009 in the USA and on April 6, 2009 in the rest of the world.
