Released: July 2001

It’s not just that Yeah Yeah Yeahs managed to outsmart Radio 1’s profanity censors with ‘Bang’ and its downright rude lyrics: “As a fuck son, you sucked” and "The bigger the better”. Or that Karen O is a phenomenal frontwoman, or that Nick Zinner is a guitar maverick that makes them so great. It’s that this New York trio broke through the barrage of indie boy band pap with this single to bring excitement, intelligence and unadulterated fun to a genre noted only for its lacklustre approach to pushing things forward. That Yeah Yeah Yeahs have succeeded in defying the status quo with each and every release since this explosive debut is to their credit.
