Crazy Beat

"Crazy Beat" is a song by English alternative rock band Blur. It was released as the second single from their seventh album Think Tank in 2003. "Crazy Beat" has been compared by critics and the band to Blur's 1997 hit "Song 2" in its guitar-driven simplicity. Released in the United States as the first single from the album, it became Blur's first single since "Song 2" to chart on the Modern Rock Tracks chart, reaching #22.



"Crazy Beat" was supported by two music videos. The official video sees the band performing the song and creating a beast composed of green lightning which attacks people in a pub. The alternate video shows four women performing a peculiar dance to the song, wearing matching brown dresses and blonde wigs.

Cover art

The single's cover art features a satirical portrait of the British Royal Family by the English graffiti artist Banksy. The mural was painted on a building in Stoke Newington. In September 2009, workers sent by Hackney London Borough Council painted over most of the mural with black paint, against the building owner's wishes.[1]
