yeah yeah yeahs

Yeah Yeah Yeahs have been together for 20 years now. To celebrate, the band gave fans a quarantine-styled performance of their classic song “Maps.”

Frontwoman Karen O was joined virtually by her bandmates Nick Zinner and Brian Chase. The video starts off with O’s son opening the closet door where viewers can see Karen O’s setup. She’s standing in front of a colorful-metallic fringed wall and is rocking some festive accessories attached to her dress and hat.

“Let me tell you something. We’re doing this 20th anniversary in style,” said the frontwoman. “20 years. Yeah yeah yeah. 2020, yeah, yeah. Let me tell you something COVID-19, you cannot break these chains of love!”

Additionally, the group shared some rare footage of their very first show. The clip shows Yeah Yeah Yeahs performing their song “Our Time” at New York’s Mercury Lounge in 2000.
