Radiohead: "15 Step" at Grammys


Since Radiohead linked to this video of their stellar performance of "15 Step" with the USC Marching Band at the recent 2009 Grammy Awards, we thought we'd share it's percussive glories with you. The Grammy organizers have been busily yanking clips of this off YouTube all week and we thought it'd be fun to be scofflaws with the band!

While we're at it, let's peek back at an earlier USC Marching Band guest spot with Fleetwood Mac. You can really hear the cocaine in the creative process on this one!

God, I love these guys. How delicious to see them performing a song from In Rainbows at the Grammys. Probably the only album up for an award in Grammy history that didn't go through a record company. Johnny Greenwood should do more musical scores. There Will Be Blood was spectacular.

cool, but i only see thom and johnny...what gives?

i haven't heard anything at all, rumors or not, about radiohead playing rothbury but that would be a very convincing argument to make it out there.

Not a big Radiohead fan but I respect their originality. Its cool that some of you guys are still clowining on me. It get from the guys at the mayonnaise plant all the time anyways. I think we can all agree that Dr.Funkinstein is full of it. Miracle Whip is horrendous and comes in plastic jars. Get a grip.

lovemusical, I can't agree with you more about our Johnny Greenwood. You should know that he did do another soundtrack to a documentary called "Bodysong." So if you love the "There Will Be Blood" soundtrack, check this one out, it's much more intense and has more of that Radiohead-esque feel to for the video, I wish I would've skipped the whole damn Grammy's waiting 3hrs just to see Radiohead and waited for this instead, oh well Paul Mccartney's performance was a good one as well and Fuck it, so wasn't Katy Perry, she is just too fine, I swear I'm gonna marry that girl someday...

that would be insane to tell your kids you played with radiohead at the grammy's....fortunately i didnt watch because i didnt want to see 95% of the corporate bullshit, luckily jambase has the 5% i want to see.....radiohead at rothbury would get me there over the roo but i doubt it

And to add, I've heard some good rumors they were so feeling the latest tour, which to the fans who attended can understand, that they were eager to get into the studio for another album...I can only hope.

Glad to see Radiohead is still doing their thing. Great band. I know this is off topic, but I have been seeing alot of talk about mayonaise jars. Can someone please fill me in on this one?

Why didn't Radiohead's bass player play? Looks like it's just a 3-piece with the marching band.
