"Weak" is a song by Skunk Anansie, released as their fourth single. It was the last release to be taken from their debut album Paranoid & Sunburnt. The song is one of Skunk Anansie's well known releases, and often a favourite at festivals. Skin performs a slower, more ballad-like version at many of her solo gigs. The song has also been covered by Rod Stewart on his 1998 album "When We Were the New Boys".

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by duo Hammer & Tongs. It is filmed primarily (with cutaways to third party views) from the point of view of a collapsed cameraman in what appears to be an airport hangar. The cameraman collapses behind a car which then drives off to show the lead singer and the band forming to perform for the offset camera. The recording is interrupted by a little boy who, after being pulled out of the way of the camera abruptly, decides to run off with it and the band gives chase after him.
