"Anyone Can Play Guitar" is a single taken from Radiohead's first album Pablo Honey, released just in advance of the album. It is the band's second single, and their first to receive a wide hearing ("Creep" had been issued in limited quantities some months earlier, and had failed to chart, but would soon become a hit and ultimately be re-released later in 1993). "Anyone Can Play Guitar" made relatively little impression on the charts, but it remained a staple of the band's live sets throughout the early-mid 1990s.
Speaking about the 3rd verse of the song, Thom explains: "I just ranted that verse the day after I saw The Doors film. That film really wound me up, really upset me. It was like [Morrison] was some sort of Arthurian legend or something." Jonny played guitar with a paintbrush on this cut.
