September 1992
Length: 3:15
Disc: Creep single | Pablo Honey Japan
Tablature: Guitar

Yet another song written right after the band got signed, this one looks at the corporate mentality - fat bankrolls, big promises. "Million $ Question" also seems to reflect Thom's feelings of doubt at this time, closing with the sample that says, "I just think maybe I'm making a mistake." The track was a live favourite in 1992 and 1993, but was dropped from setlists soon after the release of Pablo Honey.

Another rare B-side, which is fast and furious and "generally the one where everyone jumps around and bumps into each other a lot". Used to played quite frequently live. There is also an extremely cool slow part in the middle, and the lyrics describe how a person could be fed up with their work, or life and desire to just escape from it all or do something out of character. To stop being themselves, sort of.

Was always waiting for the crush
The car to drive right through the shops
To call in sick and late at work
And take a holiday

Was always tangled up in knots
To keep myself from speaking up
But no one's listening anyway
Just trying to bribe me

And if it's alright, then what am I doing here?
And if it's alright, this place is gassed by fear
And if it's alright, then I'll tell you, 'cause you never understand
And if it's alright, then I'll beg you, 'cause I'm a begging kind of man

Today I wrote a bad cheque
Packed a bag and took a jet
But no-one's looking anyway
I hope they miss me

(I just think maybe I'm making a mistake)
