Infra-Red (3:14)

Cover of Meds

From Meds and 17 other releases

Infra-Red is the third single from Placebo’s fifth studio album, Meds, and was released on 19 June 2006. The song peaked #42 in the UK, #35 on the US Modern Rock Tracks chart, and #91 in Germany.

The words “beggar’s banquet”, featured in its lyrics, references the Rolling Stones’ album of the same name.

A live version of the song is available on the Live At La Cigale download-only EP.

The music video features politicians seemingly conspiring against the public; meanwhile, a group of ants interfere with their files. A character (apparently a president or similar leader) gives a speech with the help of a computerised prompter, but the ants’ interference causes the prompter to say “I lied to you. We are the enemy”, which the president reads.

One last thing before I shuffle off the planet
And I will be the one to make you crawl
So I came down to wish you an unhappy birthday
Someone call the ambulance, theres gonna be an accident
