Yeah Yeah Yeahs — Maps

"Maps" is a song by American indie rock band Yeah Yeah Yeahs from their debut full-length album "Fever to Tell". The song is about the relationship between Liars frontman Angus Andrew and Yeah Yeah Yeahs lead singer Karen O. It was released 2003, and the band performed the song at that year's MTV Movie Awards. The music video received extensive play on MTV. It reached number nine on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart and was included in the popular video game Rock Band.

The video shows the band playing in an audition in a high school gymnasium, with different light filters changing the color of the room. Karen O's crying in the video was not staged. She explains: "They were real tears. My boyfriend at the time (Angus Andrew) was supposed to come to the shoot – he was three hours late and I was just about to leave for tour. I didn't think he was even going to come and this was the song that was written for him. He eventually showed up and I got myself in a real emotional state." The song title allegedly stands for “My Angus Please Stay.” The video received substantial play on MTV. The video was nominated for four MTV Video Music Awards at the 2004 ceremony: Best Art Direction, Best Editing, Best Cinematography, and the MTV2 Award. It was directed by Patrick Daughters.

In 2009, it was voted the best alternative love song of all time by NME. The song was also listed at number six on Pitchfork Media's top 500 songs of the 2000s. Rolling Stone ranked "Maps" as the 7th best song of the 2000s. On April 7, 2011, Rolling Stone ranked "Maps" number 386 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. In October 2011, NME placed it at number 55 on its list "150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years".
