Placebo singles chronology

"Taste in Men" is a single by alternative rock band Placebo. Taken from their third album, it reached number 16 in the UK singles chart.

Music video

The music video, directed by Barbara McDonogh, was filmed in the Central London Register office. It shows Brian Molko involved in a bizarre love triangle with a rowing couple. Montages of Molko with both the man and the woman are sequenced throughout the video.

Live performance history

The song was a staple of the Black Market Music and Sleeping With Ghosts tours. Despite not appearing during the initial legs of the tour, it reappeared for the winter 2006 leg of the Meds tour and remained until the conclusion of the tour. It was the closing song for all shows on the Battle For The Sun tour.[citation needed]


The phrase "come back to me awhile" is taken from the Sonic Youth song "Catholic Block", found on their album Sister.

The song was used in an episode from the United States version of Queer as Folk.

The bass riff is almost identical to Roger Waters' "Let There Be More Light" from the Pink Floyd album A Saucerful of Secrets. The track Block Rockin' Beats from the 1997 The Chemical Brothers album Dig Your Own Hole also reaps from the before mentioned Pink Floyd album.
