"O Yeah" is the debut single by Australian band End of Fashion, taken from their 2005 self-titled debut album.

The song was featured in the video game FIFA Street 2 and in the Australian edition of Singstar Rocks!.

Music video[edit]

The music video, set on a drag racing strip, was directed by Ben Quinn and produced by Lucy Markovich, and depicts lead singer Justin Burford strolling down the main strip, alternating shots of racing cars with shots of various attendees to the race, in addition to various shots of the band's instruments.

Criticism[edit]

End of Fashion have been criticised for their uncredited copying of the guitar riff from the Pixies song "Where Is My Mind?" for their song "O Yeah". Rockus Online Magazine reviewer Jonathon Miller called the song "disturbingly Pixies-ish" and went on to write:

"End of Fashion are having no problem appealing to the 95% of people that haven't heard (and still remember) the Pixies' "Where Is My Mind?" and have never experienced a truly exciting live show, and if that's what the band is aiming for, then they are a complete success."[1]
