Yeah Yeah Yeahs Are First to Make Video Atop Empire State Building
If the Yeah Yeah Yeahs can make it there, they can make it anywhere.
For the first time in history, a music video was shot at the top of New York City’s historic Empire State Building. The indie rock trio released the video for their new single “Despair,” which features the group jamming atop the 1,454-foot building.
“There’s been a lot of career highs and lows over the years of being in a band, but in the end, how many can say they shot a video on the top of the Empire State Building?” lead singer Karen O said in a statement. “We win.”
Although it is the first time the Empire State Building’s observation deck has been used, it is not the first skyscraper in NYC that has welcomed a band to perform. Limp Bizkit’s “Rollin’ and Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence” were both filmed atop the World Trade Center.
