"5/4" is a song by British virtual band Gorillaz and is the second track on their 2001 self-titled debut album. [1][2]The title is a reference to the 5/4-time signature of the guitar riff that appears throughout the track. The song was performed live by the band on their first tour and was subsequently brought back on the Humanz Tour, with Jehnny Beth taking lead vocals.

A music video based on the song (intended to be a single before being replaced by "19-2000") was supposed to be released, but production was never finished.[3] A storyboard from Gorillaz' 2002 compilation DVD, Phase One: Celebrity Take Down, includes an animatic for the now-scrapped "5/4" music video, which includes a brief image of a woman masturbating and Murdoc taking off his clothes to become completely nude, along with several other explicit moments that are too graphic to describe in the video.
