"Reckoner" is a song by the English alternative rock band Radiohead, and is the seventh track on their 2007 album In Rainbows. The song was released as the fourth and final single from In Rainbows on 23 September 2008. It was released through the Radiohead Remix website in the form of "stems", individual parts of the song (e.g. vocals, guitar, piano) for fans to remix, as with "Nude". The band had James Holden and Diplo create the first remixes of "Reckoner".The song was listed at #254 on Pitchfork Media's "Top 500 songs of the 2000s". In October 2011, NME placed it at number 93 on its list "150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years".HistoryIn 2001, Radiohead performed a song with the working title of "Reckoner" in George, Washington. This song, also known as "Feeling Pulled Apart by Horses" after a part of the lyrics, was a fast-paced, 'thrashy' rock song. In 2005, at a Trade Justice Movement rally where he also played "Nude", Radiohead singer Thom Yorke performed this early version of "Reckoner" on acoustic guitar. Yorke was later asked about the band's plans for "Reckoner", and he declared it "dead and buried". The song, in either form, was not played on the 2006 Radiohead tour where most In Rainbows material was introduced live. However, the song title was included in the final track listing of their seventh album.
