TBT: Yeah Yeah Yeahs – "Zero"

I'm sure most of you know how Throwback Thursday (or #TBT) works, right? In case you don't, it basically involves posting older pictures of yourself or other people on social networks—especially Instagram and Twitter—on Thursday (duh). Well, I've decided to make my own TBT, but instead of pictures, I'll be posting songs and/or music videos from the past that I really like, whether it's 4 years old or 20 years old. I call the shots, bitches.

For today's TBT, I chose "Zero" by Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

I already sort of knew this song back when it came out in 2009, but it wasn't until a few months ago that I became completely addicted to it. Ugh, how the hell did it take so long?? I mean, it was even featured on Gossip Girl, for crying out loud (more specifically the season 2 finale). Anyway, some people didn't seem to approve of the band's decision to incorporate synthesizers to their music at that time, but I sure loved it. Sadly, I couldn't get into their latest album, Mosquito, but I'd be totally down if YYYs ever decided to go the synth-rock route again.

The music video is equally badass. I'd kill for that studded leather jacket that Karen O wears in it, it's just too flawless for words.
