Radiohead plays ‘Creep’ live after nearly a decade

“Creep” is a song by Radiohead which came out in 1993, as a part of Pablo Honey. Shortly after it came out, the band revealed how they despised it, calling it “crap,” and calling fans who request it in concert’s “anally retarded.”

Then, on Sunday, unthinkable happened. In their show in Paris, Radiohead performed the song in their show in Le Zenith in Paris.

“This is for the funny guy shouting ‘Creep’ in the back,” Yorke reportedly said before performing the song. “Only to shock you.”

Before the Paris show on May 23, the band did not play the song since their August 30, 2009 Reading Festival performance.

In the same show, the band also performed fan favorites like “No Surprises” (the last time that Radiohead played this was in 2009 in Chile) and “True Love Waits” (Moon Shaped Pool version), which they played as a standalone song, not the usual intro to other songs like “Everything In Its Right Place.”

Rolling Stone reported that the Paris concert was also the first time that the band played at least one song from all of their studio albums in a single concert.
