* RADIOHEAD - Pop is Dead

* Pop is Dead EP

* Guitar tab by Giuseppe Dimunno <giuseppedimunno@katamail.com>

 

This is one of the most ingenius guitar songs by RADIOHEAD.

I tabbed all the guitar riffs so you can both play alone and play with your band.

I shared the song into three parts, so understanding the tab can be simpler for you.

Pay attention: you need to be John Greenwood or kinda to play the 3rd part.

Write to me for requesting other tabs, correction and just to exchange opinions.

LYRICS:

 

 

Oh no, pop is dead, long live pop

It died an ugly death by back-catalogue

And now you know it gets you nowhere

And now you know, you realize

 

Oh no, pop is dead, it just gave up

We raised the dead, but they won't stand up.

And radio has salmonella

And now you know you're gonna die

 

So what pop is dead, it's no great loss,

So many facelifts, his face flew off.

The emperor has no clothes on,

And his skin is peeling of

 

Oh no, pop is dead, long live pop

One final line of coke to jack him off

He left this message for us...

He's dead ! He's dead ! He's dead !
