Electioneering (3:50)

Written on tour this song is invisioned as a politician shouting down a microphone. The song was inspired by the poll tax riots and is very critical (as with most Radiohead work) of a capitalist society.

The mentioned I.M.F. is a banking trust.

  • Like strolling haphazardly amidst a raucous rabble of suited sycophants celebrating slicing another piece of freedom away from the common herd of meaningless sheep they perceive us lesser beings as.
  • incredible!
  • As i get older im starting to pay attention more to killer bass lines it seems.
  • This after 'Fitter Happier' is the most genius thing Radiohead have ever done.
  • political shit
  • It's definitly one of the best.
  • The much needed wake up call after Fitter Happier.
  • classic
  • And not out-of-place either
  • Great song and definately not a filler, can't understand how can anyone think it as a filler :o
