WATCH Radiohead from Conan

Check out Radiohead's live performance of "House Of Cards" from Late Night With Conan O'Brien last night (4/23).


RADIOHEAD TO APPEAR ON LATE NIGHT WITH CONAN O'BRIEN
IN "GREEN PERFORMANCE" WEDNESDAY APRIL 23
Band's Exclusive Pre-Taped Performance Greener Than Live Appearance

Radiohead
Radiohead will make an exclusive appearance on NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien Wednesday April 23 (12:35-1:35 a.m. ET).

The band - who made their network television debut on Late Night and were O'Brien's first-ever musical guest in 1993 - has recorded an exclusive live performance from their critically acclaimed and record-industry-paradigm-shifting release In Rainbows to air on O'Brien's contribution to NBC's "Green Week" of environmentally conscious programming.

Recorded live in London, Radiohead's performance of "House of Cards," represents an ongoing effort by the socially conscious band to act in the greenest manner possible. By opting to record this exclusive performance rather than fly over for a one-off appearance, the band - as frontman Thom Yorke notes in the introduction to their performance - avoided leaving a carbon footprint equivalent to driving one's car for a solid year.

Other guests on Late Night's "Green" show are a bit more literal - "Robot Chicken" creator and actor Seth GREEN and "Today" show travel editor Peter GREENberg.

No one likes RadioHead?? GanJa exactly what planet do you live on? Last I heard, RadioHead is one of the few bands to successfully transcend all genres, remain independent, and stay true to their mission of producing incredible music for our enjoyment and not their wallets.

i'm still not over the fact that they're playing a festival in SF instead of the greek. although the lineup is solid, i need some straight radiohead, no chaser.

I would never say this about any other band...But I honestly think a person require a certain something to get Radiohead. Something like...elevated emotional intelligence. You gotta be kidding me if you think that performance wasn't at the very least respectable. You already surmise this, but this performance blew my mind.

I would love to see an IQ or EQ test of a group of random Radiohead fans vs. a bunch of random bumpkins like, say, Tehsay above. Some young college student in psychology (who quite likely loves Radiohead): prove me wrong. I've found the Radiohead test to be a great measuring stick of just how much a person "gets it." One one end of the spectrum: the ethereal weirdo dressed in all black dude who is a slave to Radiohead...He gets it, maybe a little too much. One other end of the spectrum: frat monkey morons, untztards, and other people who can't seem to devote more than 60 seconds of focused attention to anything other than flashing lights and loud explosions. Talk about boring.

In short: smart people get, if not adore, radiohead. Idiots typically can't stand them...Harsh accusation? Hell yeah. Accurate? You tell me.

I'm hoping for lots of thumbs down here, folks. Hook a brotha up.

after reading your post a couple of times to ensure that it really was as ridiculous as i had initially thought, i can only conclude that you successfully debunked your own theory. "elevated emotional intelligence?"=pretentious asshole.

First off thanks for posting this jambase......secondly this music is transcendental and very mellow exactly what you need when trying to meditate examine your inner thoughts and really try to connect with everything around you in this pea pod of a universe....I dunno if it has anything to do with education i would go more along the lines of realizing the overall picture how minuscule our time here on earth really is but at the same time how long it has taken to reach this beautiful perception that we call life

I prefer the pre-In Rainbows version of House of Cards. Can't wait for West Palm Beach and Tampa baby. Only a week or so away!

"they're all average musicians who honestly can't write a decent song (imo oviously) and came into the scene at just the right time."

you may not believe this but Radiohead was actually around before Bonnaroo '06. "average musicians who cant write a decent song"..have you ever actually listened to OK Computer or Kid A?

Radiohead owns. C'mon, how many bands put their new album on the internet for free download?

They are masters of their craft. Go see them live.

Radiohead is an average band, with average musicianship & average songs. SOrry to break it to ya. I like em, but they are not the best thing since the Beatles.

It was more of a "sliced bread" type usage. I could have said Zeppelin, Floyd, Phish, Menudo, ect. ect.

I've never really understood the hype over Radiohead. I've listened to the majority of their albums attempting to understand what everyone's so excited about, and I have to admit none of their stuff has really seemed that epic to me. To each his own though, I guess.

there's nothing really to "get" about radiohead's music - it's influenced by rock, alternative, electronic, jazz, and indie music.. it's beautifully made, has amazing lyrics, good structures, great experimentation, intelligent danceability, and fucking gorgeous layers. i'm not sure what more you could want out of music. i like a good jam as much as the next guy but any true music lover should at least be able to appreciate radiohead.

Radiohead is making music for the ages, I'd put Yorke on par with Robert Smith, both are uniquely British artiste's. Could'nt imagine either bloke going big solo, but as bands, they both pretty much define their seperate, but in many ways equal, genres.
