"Stop Whispering" is a single from English alternative rock band Radiohead, released as the band's fourth single in 1993. It is the fourth track of their first album, Pablo Honey (1993). It reached #23 on the US Modern Rock Tracks chart.

Background[edit]

The song was written as a tribute to the Pixies, a band that had an important influence over Radiohead at the time, hence the single CD art cover is a little similar to Pixies' Surfer Rosa. "Stop Whispering" is also one of Radiohead's oldest songs; it was created when the band was still known as On A Friday, originally being on Dungeon Demo.
