Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs Rocker Blogs About Vegetarianism

Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Drummer Brian Chase, of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, recently took to the band’s blog to discuss a rather, ahem, meaty issue—his vegetarianism.

“Since becoming a vegetarian I’ve felt a new openness and lightness,” he writes. He goes on to explain his objection to killing animals for food, saying, “Once a life is taken, that’s it, it’s over, it doesn’t come back. To kill an animal is the end, the animal does not grow back and [he or she] is not replaced. There is no sense of gratitude that can equal the taking of a life.” You can read the rest of Brian’s vegetarian musings here.

Brian’s not the only “veg-head” in the band, mind you! Guitarist Nick Zinner happens to be an outspoken vegan who provided the music for our infamous “Milk Gone Wild” commercial.

Everything I learn about the Yeah Yeah Yeahs makes me like them even more—and considering that I named my kitty companion, Dracula Mappington, partly after one of their songs, that’s saying a lot.
