Songfacts®:

  • "Prove Yourself" was originally the lead track on Radiohead's first release in 1992, The Drill EP.
  • According to Q magazine April 2008, this was championed by Radio 1 DJ Gary Davies, who said: "I didn't know anything about the band - it just sounded great. Years later I bumped into one of the band, can't remember which one, and he said, 'You were the first person to play the record-not John Peel or the Evening Session.' It's very nice that he remembered."
