Lana Del Rey's legal dispute with Radiohead has apparently been settled

In January, a confusing and weird legal battle popped up when Lana Del Rey declared that Radiohead was trying to sue her for allegedly ripping off “Creep” with her song “Get Free.” She said she had offered the band 40 percent ownership, but she claimed its lawyers were “relentless” and would only accept 100 percent.…

Apparently you can map the Radiohead discography to any TV show ever

Over the decades Radiohead, like most good bands, has changed its sound from album to album. The range of its work (no, not just “sad,” “sadder,” and “saddest,” dad) can be hard to describe succinctly. Fortunately for all of us, the internet has solved this problem in the way the internet solves problems best:…

Live’s not dead: 21 great live albums from the 21st century

In May 1968, Johnny Cash released Live At Folsom Prison, a recording of a raucous, emotionally charged performance before a group of grateful inmates that went on to top the country charts, completely reinvigorating Cash’s career. Folsom wasn’t the first successful live album, obviously, but it quickly became a…

Radiohead's publisher denies that it's suing Lana Del Rey over "Get Free"

On Sunday, Lana Del Rey seemed to confirm reports that she was being sued by Radiohead over similarities between “Creep” and her song “Get Free.” She indicated that she was communicating directly with the band’s “relentless” lawyers, and even though she had offered to give up 40 percent of the song’s publishing…

Radiohead sues Lana Del Rey for allegedly ripping off “Creep”

Radiohead has been pretty open about how much it gets sick of “Creep,” with the band going years and years without playing it live, but Radiohead’s efforts to distance itself from that annoyingly massive hit shouldn’t be taken as an indication that it doesn’t care about it. According to Pitchfork, Radiohead is…

Radiohead would rather play a show than attend the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony

Radiohead just announced its first tour dates of 2018, a handful of stops at South American music festivals. But one gig stands out among the rest: April 14 in Buenos Aires. That also happens to be the date of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony, which the band would ostensibly be invited to attend if its first-time…

Watch Pile channel Radiohead with this cover of an OK Computer classic

Radiohead’s third studio album OK Computer turned 20 earlier this year. A critical and commercial success, the album is filled with unpredictable, magnificent tracks, and helped define the band’s direction for over a decade. Filling those shoes on the 20th anniversary of the album is indie rock band Pile, who pull off…

Jonny Greenwood celebrates the 10th anniversary of In Rainbows with a very stupid SpongeBob meme

A decade ago today, Radiohead released its shatteringly good seventh album, In Rainbows. At the time, much attention was paid to the then-revolutionary “pay what you want” scheme, but over time the record developed a reputation as containing some of the band’s wiliest compositions and brightest production. It’s a…

Radiohead fans Dave Chappelle and Ed Sheeran sang “Creep” together

Dave Chappelle is apparently a big Radiohead fan, always ready to hit karaoke bars, birthday fetes, and Saturday Night Live afterparties with his rendition of “Creep.” And should he ever want some back-up vocals, he could probably pluck just about anyone out of the audience, restaurant, etc. But it turns out his duet…

Radiohead collaborated with Hans Zimmer for a new take on an old song

Radiohead and prolific film composer Hans Zimmer have teamed up for a new version of one of the band’s songs for the BBC’s upcoming Blue Planet II nature documentary series. The song, called “(Ocean) Bloom,” is an orchestral reworking of the skittering, percussive “Bloom” from the band’s 2011 album The King Of Limbs.…

Radiohead’s drummer is getting into the movie soundtrack game, too

There’s been a push in recent years for the elder statesmen of alt-music—your Trent Reznors or your Jonny Greenwoods, say—to slide into the world of film score composing, applying skills honed through years of meticulous album work and touring toward big emotional movie moments in films like The Social Network or …

There’s some weird shit going on in Radiohead’s “Videotape”

Radiohead, lovingly referred to as “The Sound Wizards Of Oxfordshire” by those in the know, has always inspired incredible devotion. The band’s catalog, from studio recordings to bootleg concert videos, is large and varied enough to deserve the treatment, but, as with most rabid fan bases, discussion centered on the…
