Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
PARANOID ANDROID
Radiohead
ALBUM: OK COMPUTER (1997)

WELL this was a tricky chords sheet to make.
There are others, but I tried to create the one I wish I found when I wanted to learn the song. 
Of course, if you want to sound exactly like the disc you should try a tab, this one here is more to help 
you get the sound right to be able to sing along. Some parts are simplified and I used a rather personal 
way to tab the intro and first verses. It may look ugly but I think it works pretty well, so give it a try. 
I wanted to combine tabs AND chords because I don't think this song makes any sense with only chords, 
and lyrics are often a problem with tabs. 

I play the intro and first two verses in picking and the rest strumming the chords.
 
If you're looking for that kind of stuff, here you go. If not, there are many other tabs should satisfy you.

Best band ever / excellent song.

Ambition makes you look pretty ugly
Kicking, squealing, Gucci little piggy

Why don't you remember my name?
I guess he does

what do you mean?
the format troubles you?
read the intro: there are surely other tabs that you'll like

Where is the guitar part for the lyrics?
"You don't remember
You don't remember
Why don't you remember my name?
Off with his head, man
Off with his head, man
Why don't you remember my name? I guess he does..."
