Thom Yorke waives his manhood around, sticks it to Prince

So, it used to be difficult to see a YouTube clip of Prince’s cover of Radiohead’s “Creep” from this year’s Coachella because, well, everybody knows Prince will unleash his Nazi brigade if so much as his shadow appears on the site. But, According to the Huffington Post:

After word spread that Prince covered Radiohead’s “Creep” at Coachella, the tens of thousands who couldn’t be there ran to YouTube for a peek. Everyone was quickly denied – even Radiohead. In a recent interview, Thom Yorke said he heard about Prince’s performance from a text message and thought it was “hilarious.” Yorke laughed when his bandmate, guitarist Ed O’Brien, said the blocking had prevented him from seeing Prince’s version of their song. “Really? He’s blocked it?” asked Yorke, who figured it was their song to block or not. “Surely we should block it. Hang on a moment.” Yorke added: “Well, tell him to unblock it. It’s our song.”

Awesome. Well played Thom Yorke. [via WWTDD]
