"Something About Us" is a song by the French electronic music duo Daft Punk. It was released as the sixth and final single from the 2001 album Discovery as a promotion for their 2003 animated feature film Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem. The song reached number 93 on the SNEP chart ranking.


Music video

There are two music videos for "Something About Us". The first video is a scene from Interstella 5555. After escaping their kidnapper, two members of the alien band The Crescendolls (drummer Baryl and bass player Stella) enter a waiting taxicab driven by keyboardist Octave. They drive to a warehouse where their rescuer, Shep, is laying on the floor bleeding to death, as a result of being shot by a laser during an earlier scene in the film. Shep raises his injured arm out to his crush Stella. She takes it and experiences a dream sequence that reveals Shep's feelings for her. When they come back, Shep then reveals The Crescendolls' true identities. The band expresses their gratitude as Shep dies.

The second music video is a compilation of clips featuring Shep and Stella. This version was released to promote the single version of "Something About Us".
