The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are an Indie rock band from New York City.

They formed in 2000.

In 2003, they released their first album, Fever to Tell.

They quickly gained popularity and were nominated for a Grammy award.

Their lead singer, Karen O, is always full of energy during their performances.

The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s music style has been described as garage-punk,indie-punk, or dance-punk.

I’ve seen them twice in concert.

They always put on a great performance.

“Zero”

Shake it like a ladder to the sun
Makes me feel like a madman on the run
Find me, never, never far gone
So get your leather, leather, leather on, on, on, on

You’re zero
What’s your name?
No one’s going to ask you
Better find out where they want you to go

Try and hit the spot
Get to know it in the dark
Get to know it whether you’re
Crying, crying, crying, oh, oh
Can you climb, climb, climb higher?

Shake it like a ladder to the sun

Was it the cure?
Shellshock!

“Gold Lion”

Gold lion’s gonna tell me where the light is,
Gold lion’s gonna tell me where the light is,
Take our hands out of control,
Take our hands out of control

Now, tell me what you saw,
Tell me what you saw,
There was a crowd of seeds,
Inside, outside,
I must have done a dozen each

It was the height I threw, the weight,
The shell was crushing you,
I’ve been around a few

Tell me what you saw,
I’ll tell you what to…
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ohh ohh
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ohh ohh

Gold lion’s gonna tell me where the light is,
Gold lion’s gonna tell me where the light is,
Take our hands out of control,
Take our hands out of control

Outside, Inside,
This is the moon without a tide,
We’ll build a fire in your eyes,
We’ll build a fire when the cover’s getting brighter,
Cold desire makes the moon without a tide

Tell me what you saw,
I’ll tell you what to…
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ohh ohh
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ohh ohh

Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ohh ohh
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ohh ohh

“Turn Into”

I know, what I know, I know
On the car ride down
I hear it in my head real low
Turn into
The only thing I ever–
Turn into
Hope I do
Turn into you

I know, what I know, I know
That girl you found
Keeps that kind of window closed
She’ll turn into
The only thing you ever–
turn into
Hope I do
Turn into you

Can’t say why I kept this from you
My those quiet eyes become you
Leave it where it can’t remind us
Turn this all around behind us
Oh! Well I know!
I’ll fall right in to keep you out
I’d like to tell you all about it

I know, what I know, I know
This last time around
I’ll hear it in my head real low
Turn into
The only thing you ever know

I know, what I know, I know
Ah yes
