Miley Cyrus was not a fan of the performance, since Radiohead were mean to her, but it seems like most folks enjoyed Thom and Jonny’s “15 Step” Grammy collaboration with the USC Marching Band. Now we get to see how it came together. The Trojans uploaded an almost nine-minute video that follows the band from figuring out “15 Step”’s rhythm patterns to taking the stage after Gwyneth Paltrow’s introduction. It’s largely from the P.O.V. of the students themselves, so expect some geeky and excited backstage banter. Also expect a dis of U2′s “Get On Your Boots” by a more outspoken member of the ensemble.

You can get the extended version of the video at

    Really, they’re nothing special as a marching band. They get good gigs because of their location.

    I’m only slightly bitter. :-p

  8. gotta love that they did tusk as a sound check (UCLA sucks).

  9. U2 = mediocre…. hilarious

    It was by far the best performance of the night.
    And what’s with all the hate towards USC, folks? Who cares if in your opinion they aren’t the best marching band in the universe. They did the job FABULOUSLY. Kudos.

    How do people develop such angry oppinions about marching bands? I’m assuming I missed out on that part of college?

    u2 has very little musically to contribute any longer. ok computer was all radiohead should have ever recorded, wait, creep was very much welcome. i agree, we all heard tusk before this.

    I am completely jealous of anyone who gets to meet Thom Yorke. If meeting people really is easy, someday….
