Street Spirit (Fade Out) is a single by the British rock band Radiohead from 1996.

The song is taken from their second studio album The Bends from that same year. Thom Yorke, the band's spokesman, said that this is one of the saddest songs, which the band wrote it. They did itself actually nothing to do; the song wrote itself. Yorke sings in front of a guidance of a minorguitar chords on bass guitar and a little lethargic, driving drums.; the vocals of Yorke is drawling and sad sounding. The gloom is displayed in Rows or the first line of the song houses, all bearing down on me; I can feel their blue hands touching me; away followed by I can feel death. Inspiration for the song came from the novel The Famished Road by Ben Okri(1971), the music shows in agreements with those of r.e.m..

The video clip of Jonathan Glazer, recorded at night in a desert just outside Los Angeles and entirely in black and white, it seems to have nothing to do with the lyrics of the song, but more with the music. Delayed and accelerated recordings alternate or are in the same shot.

Street Spirit was covered at least five times:
