“Oh Yeah!” is the first single and fourth track from rock band Chickenfoot’s debut album Chickenfoot. It was released on 13 April 2009.
Chickenfoot is the debut studio album by American hard rock band Chickenfoot, released on June 5, 2009, in Europe and the US. The first pressing of the album was packaged with exclusive “heat sensitive” artwork that revealed an image when touched or exposed to heat above 84 degrees Fahrenheit.
On March 20, 2009, the band released two songs, “Soap on a Rope” and “Down the Drain” on their official website. The band’s first single, “Oh Yeah”, was released to radio stations nationwide, as well as on their official website, on April 13, 2009.
On October 7, 2009, the official Chickenfoot website revealed that the album had been certified Gold.
A deluxe edition with a DVD was released in the UK on October 26, 2009, and the US, exclusively at Best Buy stores, on November 1, 2009.
On October 16, 2012, the album was re-released as a double disc with 5 bonus tracks on the second disc. The release was due to the original label going out of business and the album being discontinued.
In a video on the band’s website, Joe Satriani said it was “the typical Chickenfoot arrangement where the song starts out with a riff and the band kicks in, then going on all these changes and when the main riff starts again, the listeners have forgotten it because of the musical journey”. He also told that it got started very simple with him and Sammy talking about old blues songs and artists and that it would be great if they could fuse what they did naturally as a band with old blues songwriting.
The music video for the single premiered at YouTube on June 11, 2009. The video shows the band performing on a scene and in a studio. There are also shots of the band playing at a basketball court. Satriani made a joke about that the video would win many awards as “best barbecue video”.
