Yeah Yeah Yeahs (mislabeled as Master[2]) is the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' self-titled debut EP, released in 2001 by the band's own label, Shifty. It is sometimes incorrectly called Master due to the prominence of a necklace bearing that word on the album's cover. It reached #1 on the UK Indie Chart.[3]

The EP was named NME's second best single of 2002.

Track listing[edit]

All songs written and composed by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, except “Mystery Girl” (Yeah Yeah Yeahs/Jack Martin).

No. Title Length
1. "Bang"   3:07
2. "Mystery Girl"   2:57
3. "Art Star"   1:59
4. "Miles Away"   2:17
5. "Our Time"   3:23

The track "Our Time" interpolates the Tommy James and the Shondells song "Crimson and Clover"; when Karen O sings "It's the year to be hated / So glad that we made it," the melody is taken from the hit song, which reached #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1969.
