"Pop Is Dead" is a song by the British alternative rock band Radiohead. It was released as a non-album single in 1993.

Released only several months after their debut single "Creep" and their debut album Pablo Honey (on which "Pop Is Dead" was not included, although it can be found on the two disc collector's edition), the song also hit before "Creep" had begun its slow and surprising ascent up the pop charts worldwide. "Pop Is Dead" reached number 42 on the UK Singles Chart in May 1993.

The song was accompanied by a video the band filmed at the Neolithic Long barrow Wayland's Smithy in Oxfordshire.
