"You Don't Care About Us" is a single by British alternative rock band Placebo, taken as the second single from their second album, Without You I'm Nothing. It reached #5 in the UK Singles Chart. The video portrays the band being thrown one by one into a tank full of sharks while a group of children stand by and watch. The video was filmed at the London Aquarium and directed by John Hillcoat.

Upon being reviewed, it was called "A track that's propelled by an unstoppable, elastic bass line and that flips manically between wise, sighing despair and spitting adolescent rage. A song which feels like it had no choice but to be written and which is one of the rawest, most brilliant singles of the last decade."[1]

Live performance history[edit]

The song was played throughout the Without You I'm Nothing tour and a number of shows in the early stages of the Black Market Music tour. It has not been performed live since 2001.
