In today’s playlist post on Radiohead’s LiveJournal: “wish us all a safe journey if you still like us and you’re not one of those people i have managed to offend by doing nothing.” Bam! Packt like sar-zings. (Previously: Miley’s beef, Kanye’s, Robert Smith’s.)

    Wayne Coyne, Miley Cyrus, and Kanye West need to start a Justice League type group that defends famous people who have been shunned/annoyed by other famous people.

    That’s an injustice that NEEDS to be resolved!

  2. Bodysnatchin’!

    LiveJournal? Really? was the Fax machine broken?

  7. I’d respect him more if he hadn’t said anything at all.

  8. i’ve never met thom yorke. he could be very nice. and i like radiohead for the most part.

    but would it be any surprise if he was a huge asshole? you spend 15 years having every review and interviewer kissing your ass and praising your genius while making a lot of money and selling out arenas and festivals the whole time and try not being a little bit of a pretentious dick.

    • This idea that he’s a pretentious dick is based on what exactly? The informed opinions of Hannah Montana and Kanye?

      Thing is, Radiohead makes good music with excellent writing and no artistic compromise. It wouldn’t matter if Thom Yorke was a big asshole or the gentlest soul on earth, it’s the music that matters. All this persona-celebrity bullshit is probably why Radiohead stays out of the press.

      • read my comment again. would you be surprised if he was a pretentious dick?

        • Actually, I would be surprised. I don’t find pretense in Radiohead’s work and from the interviews I’ve read with Thom Yorke he’s very honest and actually cuts through media pretense.

          That being said, I suppose if you perceive the music press to be unpretentious, you’ll probably read those same interviews and believe that Yorke is pretentious. It’s all a matter of perspective.

        • indie kids aren’t surprised. bemused, maybe. but never surprised.

        yorke is a pretentious dick? because he loves the music he makes and tries to stay to himself?

    this is what you’ll get when you mess with us

    All of you guys are just mean. Miley has done more for people than you will ever know. She has sold waaayyy more CDs and iTunes songs and stuff than Radiohead ever will. Obviously she would be the one that people should listen to, not some weird British group that just makes weird sounds so people think they are smart when they listen to it.

      If I could vote you down more than once I would. You make no sense. Go watch Hannah Montana.

    • Sorry, troll. Try again.

    • OLVE  |   Posted on Mar 13th, 2009 0

      I can’t believe I’m arguing with a 6 year old, but Miley has not sold anywhere near the amount of records as Radiohead. Look it up.

      that is the most ridiculous thing I will ever read in my life.

    • ironlung  |   Posted on Mar 13th, 2009 0

      It’s not about selling the most merchandise or winning Grammies, though they’re both nice. The only thing that counts is the one thing people really Do care about: MUSIC. As for the “weird sounds” part, that’s not the only thing they’ve done. If you haven’t, listen to both ‘The Bends’ and ‘OK Computer’ albums by Radiohead. They aren’t exactly “weird sounds”.

    • rrrrrrr  |   Posted on Mar 14th, 2009 0

      I love it.

    • Pearline  |   Posted on Mar 14th, 2009 0

      Agree totes. 110 purr-cent.

    • Don’t you have anything better to do, or is your Twilight fanfiction all writers-blocked up at the moment?

  11. Yup  |   Posted on Mar 12th, 2009 0

    Apparently shes the one listening to the weird sounds and thinks they are there geniuses. Geniuses she that she will now ruin for not being current and giving her time backstage at the grammies. Sucks. I liked radiohead. I wonder what there going to do now that montana’s wrath is upon them.

  12. Eh. I am bored by this “feud” — which is not really a feud at all. Just some random artists no one has ever heard of (Kanye? Miley?) dissing Radiohead’s manners. Their comments are given a one sentence response from Thom. I bore myself writing about it.

    I can’t believe anyone into good music would compare Hannah or Myley tp Radiohead. The latter has made some of the most interesting and innovative music over the last 10 years. Also, OK Computer, Kid A and In Rainbows were all nominees for best album and Hail to the Thief and Amnesiac for Best Alternative album.
    Don’t get me wrong, I like Miley but I just don’t think it is worth comparing her to Radiohead – she’s just not in the same league.

  14. this is important

    Hey stereogum, you forgot to mention that Radiohead also said:
    “When Miley grows up, she’ll learn not to have such a sense of entitlement.” Check the article: http://music.yahoo.com/read/news/61985920

    Awesome!

    • Bob S.  |   Posted on Mar 13th, 2009 0

      Correction: Radiohead didn’t say that quote, their publicist did. (Eh, not quite as awesome.)

  16. This shit is just getting better and better!!!
    Knives out! Bitches!!!

  17. I wonder if the jonas brothers will talk smack so they dont feel left out.

    This thread is gay.

    miley needs to get over this stupid bullshit. so thom yorke didnt run to give her a huge hug or said, “omgomg its like miley cyrus,i like totally want to meet her!”, so what? its pretty reasonable if you ask me. i mean, theyre not even close to being in the same league of musicians if you can call miley a musician. she has no reason to be upset at what happened.

    Radiohead are the greatest band in definatley the last decade.

    Miley is just some disney faze, she’ll hit 21, start taking serious drugs and alcohol, start wanting to get away from the “teen star” title – but it’ll never happen, she’ll always try to be grown up, but it’s never work and yeah, basically when she’s 25 they’ll have been some new kid disney found and they’ll get huge and people won’t even know who she is…that’s how it works.

    and as for Kayne, he has his head so far up his own arse, I’m surprised he even notices anything else.

  21. wayne coyne can tear me a new asshole any day ; ) wait, i mean thom yorke

  22. 2nose  |   Posted on Mar 16th, 2009 0

    Has she released a sex tape yet?

  23. I haven’t seen one thing mentioned yet…….Is anyone else concerned that we are actually in the same fan base as miley cyrus? I don’t know if that means she has good musical taste, or if the rest of us have the same musical taste as a 15 girl. I guess it’s best not to think about.

  24. What’s with artists slamming each other lately? Just make music. What gives you the right to spout off? Oh yeah, I guess it’s called free speech.

  25. Miley Lover  |   Posted on Mar 18th, 2009 0

    All Radiohead fans can burn and rot in hell. Miley is here to stay forever and ever!

  26. and we care about miley cyrus why?

  27. Its all a ruse. My brother works at a hotel in LA and saw them get a room together. The management even had to tell them to quiet down.
