"Re-Wired" is the second single from Kasabian's fourth album, Velociraptor!. First released digitally, the single has also been released as a limited 10 inch vinyl on 20 November 2011. Only 1,000 copies were made and were quickly sold out in 3 days through pre-orders.[1] A part of the song was used at half time in live Premier League football matches on Sky Sports during the 2011/2012 season, when a small round up of incidents during the match was played before a commercial break.

Music video[edit]

The band have released a video for the song, in which they drive various cars, being chased by a black 4x4. At the end they are caught and given a suitcase that glows as gold when opened and they remain speechless.[2] Like the promo video for "Vlad The Impaler", this one also has a more humorous nature. In one bit, they are seen riding a five-seater bike, with Noel Fielding dressed up as Vlad the Impaler

Chart performance[edit]

In its second week of release, the song managed to briefly crack the Official UK Albums Chart at number 96 before falling off the chart. The main reason was the limited vinyl release and not a proper single one. It slowly climbed on the Belgium Tip Chart, to 13 in Flanders and 35 in Wallonia.

Chart (2011) Peak
Belgium (Ultratip Flanders) 13
Belgium (Ultratip Wallonia)[3] 35
UK Singles Chart 96
