Music video

The music video for the song was directed by Jonas Odell. It includes the band in the midst of a Dadaist animation involving quirky vintage figures and machinery reminiscent of Terry Gilliam's cartoon segments for Monty Python. The video is a blend of the live action band superimposed into a 3D environment with animated 2D elements. Franz Ferdinand frontman Alex Kapranos described the video's influences as Dada, the films of Busby Berkeley, and Soviet propaganda, and praised Odell's direction. Kapranos commented:

Basically it's a pop video and it should entertain you, but not just once – there're certain things you stare at in life that is just fascinating to look at like a fish tank or an open fire, they're actually quite simple things but there's something fascinating about them. And I think pop videos should be like that too. There should be something there that just makes you want to come back and look at it.[7]

Honours

In March 2005, Q magazine placed "Take Me Out" at number 41 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks. In September 2005, the same magazine named it the 34th greatest track ever performed by a British band.

The song was covered by the Scissor Sisters in 2004 on the B-side to their single "Mary" and "Filthy/Gorgeous". In Australia, the song received substantial airplay and was ranked number 44 on Triple J's Hottest 100 of 2004 while the original version was ranked number one.[6]

The Magic Numbers and Guillemots both covered the song for BBC Radio 1's The Jo Whiley Show.[citation needed] Biffy Clyro also recorded a very different take for Zane Lowe's show. Finger Eleven are known for playing "Take Me Out" live, usually in a medley of their "Paralyzer", Led Zeppelin's "Trampled Under Foot" and Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall Part 2".[citation needed]
