Thom Yorke apparently took to calling the song Crap and stated that the band had “sucked Satan’s cock” following its release. And woe betide anyone who requested the song: at one concert in Montreal, he answered a fan’s request by telling the crowd to “fuck off, we’re tired of it”. Yorke has also accused other admirers of the track of being “anally retarded“, whatever that may mean.
Huh…I must be “anally retarded” because I love the song.
Last night, in Hollywood, California, there was a big to-do to celebrate Linda Perry (4 Non Blondes) new single for the upcoming Ellen Page/ Julianne Moore film Freeheld. A bunch of celebrity mucky-mucks were there including Courtney Love and she took to the stage to belt out the classic Radiohead jammer “Creep.”
The song has the energy and ferocity to remind you why Courtney Love was such a special performer in the 90s.
