"Creep" is a seminal alternative rock song performed by the British band Radiohead. Released in 1992 as the band's debut single, the track played a pivotal role in establishing Radiohead's early success and has since become one of their most iconic and recognizable songs.

The song's introspective lyrics, written by Radiohead's lead vocalist and songwriter Thom Yorke, express feelings of inadequacy and unrequited love. Yorke's emotive and distinctive vocals contribute to the haunting and raw quality of the track. The chorus, with the repeated refrain "I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo," has become particularly memorable and resonates with listeners.

Musically, "Creep" is characterized by its dynamic shifts, moving from quiet verses to explosive, distorted guitar-driven choruses. The juxtaposition of these elements adds to the emotional impact of the song.

Despite its initial success, "Creep" had a complicated relationship with the band. Radiohead became somewhat ambivalent towards the song as they felt it did not fully represent their musical vision. However, its popularity played a crucial role in propelling Radiohead into the mainstream music scene.

Over the years, "Creep" has maintained its status as a classic and is often cited as one of the defining songs of the '90s alternative rock era. Its enduring popularity is reflected in its frequent appearance in various media and its continued resonance with new generations of listeners.

[Verse 1]
When you were here before
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world

[Pre-Chorus]
I wish I was special
You're so fuckin' special

[Chorus]
But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here

[Verse 2]
I don't care if it hurts
I wanna have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice
When I'm not around

[Pre-Chorus]
You're so fuckin' special
I wish I was special

[Bridge]
She's running out the door
She's running out
She run, run, run, run
Run

[Outro]
Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so fuckin' special
I wish I was special
But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here
I don't belong here 

Review comment: 
- Some songs will never die in the hearts of those who heard them. This is one of them 
- This song is a masterpiece. So honest, authentic, really captures the emotions of feeling like a social misfit. 
- This is not a song, this is masterpiece 
- This song truly is a masterpiece. Self- loathing, love for your person, depression. Thank you Radiohead. 
- The lyrics in the song are probably some of the most beautiful things I've ever heard. I'm not a radio head fan. But this is a top tier song that can never be paralleled.
