"Heads Will Roll," while one of my least favorites on the album, was quite good on Late Night last night. The love affair with KO continues. She's the best.

How the hell do you not like Heads Will Roll, Imperor? Explain yourself to Karen.

I did not watch last night, hopefully the video is up somewhere.

I like every song. It's just one of my least favorite.

Oddly, the four songs chosen for acoustic versions are my four favorites. But I still like the rest.

Heads Will Roll is one of my least favorites too. Maybe it would work better live, but it's one of the songs on the album that feels more '80s revival than Yeah Yeah Yeahs to me.

Oddly, it's one of the few "standouts" for me. I like the album, but there are really only 3 or so "big song" I find myself wanting to hear repeatedly, it's one of them.

Yeah, I have three as well: Zero, Soft Shock, and Hysteric. But most everything else is good enough that I'll almost always play the album from front to back.

"Hysteric" is so perfect.

This is why I enjoy the track; it's got this 80's retro vibe going.

It doesn't have to be completely original to be good.

I really enjoy the whole album, but my favorites just happen to be the first two (Zero, Heads Will Roll) and the last two (Hysteric, Little Shadow).

Zero and Hysteric are my other two. Soft Shock is growing on my quite a bit the last few days, so I may up it to 4 or 5 songs sometime soon. I agree that it's a solid album, no real clunkers that I can think of.

I found last night's performance:

YouTube - Yeah Yeah Yeahs - "Heads Will Roll" on Fallon 4/15/09 (TheAudioPerv.com)

Dearest Karen, I love you so.

Fallon sounded 100 times better introducing them than Zach Teflon

I haven't heard anything I've liked by this band - even "Maps" left me kind of meh. But I heard this album, and made this face:

I love it.

I'm going to make sure this gets brought back up for FuManchu. The lock Gestapo closed down the other one quite quickly.

Welcome to Blitzland, bitch.
