"No Place to Go" is a song by the alternative rock band My Bloody Valentine. It is the opening track and lead single from the band's debut extended play, Geek!, released in December 1985 on Fever Records. Featuring lyrics by vocalist David Conway and music by guitarist Kevin Shields, "No Place to Go" is considered the standout song on Geek![1] although Shields later referred to it as an "absolute failure" and "unrepresentative of what [My Bloody Valentine] wanted to do."[2]
