"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 charted at #78, but would soon become a hit and ultimately be re-released later in 1993). "Anyone Can Play Guitar" peaked at #32 in the UK,[1] and remained a staple of the band's live sets throughout the early-mid 1990s. In Australia, the single peaked at #97 on the ARIA singles chart in 1994.[2]
