"Y Control" is a single by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, from their debut album Fever to Tell. The name of the song refers to the emotional control of a female, referring to the male Y chromosome, and can also be read as a reference to Prince's 1995 song "Pussy Control," which is frequently abbreviated as "P Control." Pitchfork Media listed "Y Control" as the 213th best song of the decade. The song is part of the soundtrack of Dirt 2.
