As Seen on TV: The Yeah Yeah Yeahs on SNL

Even if you watched with the sound off, the long-legged strangeness and feroche fashion of Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O on last night's SNL is rock stardom at its best and most beautiful. But, please, I implore you--listen with the sound turned way up high because when Ms. O sings it only gets better.

Especially because their second song was "Maps"! the first Yeah Yeah Yeahs song I ever heard. That opening guitar is so dramatic and KO's voice no matter how many times I hear it, rips my heart out. The fact that they graced us with such an oldie but goodie was the best thing in my Easter basket this morning.
