No [x42] I don't know why you bother Nothing's ever good enough for you. (By the way) I was there and it wasn't like that. You've come here just to start a fight You had to piss on our parade You had to shred our big day You had to ruin it for all concerned In a drunken punch-up at a wedding Yeah Hypocrite opportunist Don't infect me with your poison A bully in a china shop When I turn 'round you stay frozen to the spot You had the pointless snide remarks Of hammerheaded sharks The pot will call the kettle black It's a drunken punch-up at a wedding yeah Oh no no
Mitchell from Adelaide, AustraliaThis was inspired by a negative review to a 2001 concert in Oxford - their home town. It made Thom angry as the band felt the show had been one of their greatest moments and the review had ruined it for them, hence "you had to piss on our parade" etc.
Connor from Oxford, CaI agree, it is an amazing song. i think the reason that is wasn't on the best of album was because Radiohead didn't sell the rights to the song to the record company. the record company came out with the album against their will. The only songs hey could legally use were the ones they owned the rights to.
Quentin from Sudbury, OnThis is one of my favourate songs by radiohead and quite frankly was often the only reason i would listen to the album "Hail to the Theif" when i used to listen to CDs rather than my iPod. I was slightly disappointed that it didnt reach their "Best of Radiohead" album. The song really gets me in a state where everything on my mind is exaggerated to quite a degree, whether good or bad, and thats what i think makes a great song!
