"Out of Control" is a song by English big beat duo The Chemical Brothers, released as the third single from their third album,Surrender. The song's vocals and guitar were performed by Bernard Sumner from New Order and additional vocals were done by Bobby Gillespie from Primal Scream. The bassline is heavily inspired by "She Has a Way" by Bobby Orlando.[citation needed]

The song was used in the trailer for the 2011 film Limitless.[citation needed]

Video[edit]

The music video of the song was directed by W.I.Z.. The video's cast includes actress Rosario Dawson and Michel Brown, and depicts a Mexican conflict between government and EZLN, a revolutionary group that appeared during the 1990s. Then is revealed to be an (highly sexist and sexual) advertisement for a fictional Coca-Cola-type beverage. The camera pans out to reveal it being displayed in an electronic shop, before the storefront is smashed in and the video ends with shaky night-time footage of violent urban riots, shot on handheld cameras.
