"Stereotypes" is a song by English rock band Blur and is the opening track to their fourth studio album, The Great Escape. It was released on 12 February 1996 as the third single from that album, charting at number 7 in the UK Singles Chart. It was originally intended to be the album's first single.
"Tame", one of the single's B-sides, is sometimes viewed as Blur's first push into the sound that they would develop greatly on their next album, Blur.
The music video which was directed by Matthew Longfellow features live footage. Whereas the previous live video promo "End of a Century" was live in picture and sound, "Stereotypes" is simply live footage edited to fit the album track recording.
