Stereotypes (3:10)

Cover of The Great Escape

From The Great Escape and 30 other releases

Stereotypes is a song by band Blur and is the opening track to their fourth studio album, The Great Escape. It was released 5 February 1996 as the third single from that album, charting at #7 in the UK Singles Chart.

Tame, one of the single’s B-sides, is sometimes viewed as Blur’s first push into the sound that they would develop greatly on their next album, Blur.

The music video, which was directed by Matthew Longfellow, features live footage. Whereas as the previous live video promo End of a Century was live in picture and sound, “Stereotypes” is simply live footage edited to fit the album track recording.

The suburbs they are dreaming
They're a twinkle in her eye
She's been feeling frisky
Since her husband said goodbye
