Best Yeah Yeah Yeahs Songs

The Top Ten

1 Maps

One of my favorite songs at the moment! Its been around for a ton of years and I'm just now finding it. I'm so lucky. I listen to this song on repeat!

Words are not enough to describe the beauty of this song

Shows emotion never bin seen! Nick Zinner gives you it all on guitar. And chase isn't banging he is the master

2 Heads Will Roll

Favourite song ever, in fact it changed the way I view music. Thank you so much Karen, Nick, and Brian!

Best song ever! Just listen to the chords in the background! But where are Slave and Skeletons on this list? They are both fantastic yyys songs as well! Neither are as good as heads will roll though

I very love that song, it's in my favorite. Actually I known about that song while I was watching a glee episode, they have made a mash-up with thriller, the glee cover is a more active than the original and you should listen that version too

An absolutely masterpiece. My favorite song of all time.

3 Y Control
4 Zero

It definitely endures repetition. The beat really catches you and makes you want to jump around like an idiot. Karen O's vocals never fall short of awesome

Very fun song



5 Turn Into

This song is the most vulnerable I've heard Karen¡ its beautiful

6 Sacrilege
7 Runaway

I love, love, love this song! And I live for the Down Town by Calvin Klein commercial with Rooney Mara - which features this song - and it makes me love this song even more. So beautiful!


Absolutely lovely 😊. I love how the song begins with just piano and vocals and other instruments come in gradually. This is a long song (5 minutes and 12 seconds long to be precise) but even at the end I’m left wanting more. The instrumental final 1.5 minutes of this song are just OUT OF THIS WORLD with the best drumming I’ve ever heard! That repetitive, loud end is probably the best part of the song

8 Cheated Heart
9 Date with the Night

This song reflects the eccentric and the craziness of the band. Just love it!

10 Gold Lion

Chase is the best drummer and Karen has a powerful voice

The Contenders

11 Down Boy

I love this song so much, it has the best riff I heard in the last couple years, can't get enough of it, it is perfect

12 Soft Shock

Very underrated. My second favourite yyys song after heads will roll.

My second favourite yyys song. Very catchy and simply wonderful.

Such an underrated song! One of the band's best from It's Blitz!

So underrated! One of my favourite songs of all time

13 Dull Life

My head just automatically twirls and spins and rocks out subconsciously because of the musical genius of this song.

14 Rich

Unique guitar. Can't believe it wasn't on the list. Yeah... People really need to vote because Y Control and Heads Will Roll before Gold Lion and Down Boy? There's a problem. Rockers to Swallow isn't even top ten! People be trippin'--please vote!

15 Phenomena

One of the best offers from Show Your Bones!

This song is just a masterpiece!

16 Rockers to Swallow

Awesome song...nothing more to say.

17 Slave

So underrated. Definitely in my top 5 yyys songs. It’s quirky catchy, and creative!

An underrated song with a really cool sound!


Should be more popular, as it’s so great!

18 No No No
19 10 x 10
20 Pin
21 Skeletons

If you listen to it a few times it starts to sound really good!

Sounds great after a few listens

Underrated, catchy masterpiece.

22 Sealings
23 Dragon Queen
24 Isis


25 Warrior

This tune is one of there best. Definitely belongs in the top ten.

26 Mosquito
27 Subway

Slow, but has a very nice tune.

28 Despair

One of my favorite songs of 2013 and I love the music video

29 Way Out
30 Mysteries

This song always gets me so pumped up! I love it.

31 Under the Earth

Very cool song.

An interesting song that’s very enjoyable to listen to.

32 Dudley

From the first few lines, to the chorus, it keeps cool, but really really gets to you. I really think it has a lot of feeling but isn't flashy. I don't know why this isn't in the list at all.

33 Little Shadow
34 Kiss, Kiss

How the hell is this here?! :/

35 Bang
36 Modern Things
