The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are a three piece band from New York City consisiting of Karen O (vocals), Brian Chase (Drums) and Nick Zinner (guitars).

The band's underground/trash rock sound is reminiscent of bands such as The White Stripes, but with a definitive edge all their own.

The lyrics are no less edgy as Michael Goldberg sums up in his observation:

"Art Star" takes the piss out of the conceptual art scene. "I've been working on a piece that speaks of sex and desperation," is the spoken first line. "I've been screwing on the tracks of abandoned train stations." And then she lets loose with a horrific scream. The final track, "Our Time," is a kind of Sept. 11 anti-anthem. "It's the year to be hated," goes the lyric. "It's our time...," Karen O sings. A chorus answers, "Our time!" And Karen O finishes the line, " be hated."
