Facebook Hail to the Thief is the sixth studio album by the English alternative rock band Radiohead, produced by Nigel Godrich and released on 9 June 2003. It was the last album released under Radiohead's six-album record contract with Parlophone. Following the electronic and jazz styles of Kid A (2000) and Amnesiac (2001), Hail to the Thief was a partial return to the guitar rock of their earlier albums, but retained electronic elements such as drum machines, synthesisers and digital manipulation. To avoid the protracted recording sessions of previous albums, the band recorded it quickly, employing a live, "spontaneous" approach.

Many of the album's lyrics were written in response to the War on Terror and the early-2000s resurgence of right-wing politics in the West. Songwriter and vocalist Thom Yorke said the album expresses "frustration and powerlessness and anger, and the huge gap between the people that put themselves in control and the people that allegedly voted for them." Although it was interpreted by some as a protest album, Yorke downplayed any political intent.
