The online music worldis going crazy

because alt rock squint godsRadiohead--

one of my and Scott Aukerman'sfavorite bands, I might add.

Scott and I have been toRadiohead concerts together.

Everything went down,and there's...

-I know. I almost called you!-I almost...

I didn't know we were gonna talkabout it here on television.

-HARRIS: Yeah.-Okay, okay, okay.

Okay, there's a lot of clues.There's a lot of clues.

First up-- fans were mailedpostcards that read,

"Burn the witch," and thenRadiohead began deleting

their entire social mediapresence, uh, doing this.

There it goes.


-(applause and cheering)-Who knows?

Who knows?Why are they vanishing?

Why are they vanishing?


Either there's a newRadiohead album,

or Thom's justin one of his moods.


Or maybe LP nineis finally on the way.

So, uh, comedians, since allwe can do is theorize right now,

what do you think is going on?


I think they're really upset

that Miley stoppedfollowing them on Twitter.

Points. I think so. Yeah.

(applause and cheering)

Very upset.

-(bell dings)-Scott.

I thinkRadiohead is being erased

like in Back to the Future

because Thom Yorke couldn'ttrick his parents into (bleep).

-HARDWICK: Yeah, points. Right.-(laughter)

-Right. -HARRIS: Okay.-(applause and cheering)

(British accent): If they don'tdance, they can't fall in love.

If they don't fall in love,they can't kiss,

-and then I'm history.-(laughter)

"Let's play a Radio songat the prom."

-Everyone scatters.-(laughter)

Hey, Thom Yorke,

you know that new soundyou've been looking for?

-Well, listen to this!-(laughter)

♪ Karma police...

-They're really funny...-(laughter)

HARRIS:Keep going. Keep going.

"Karma Police" at the Underthe Sea dance, and... Oh!

Makes it a much different movie.Weird Al.

They're forsaking the Internetand releasing their next album

exclusively on handmademusical dream catchers.

HARDWICK:Yes. Points. Points.

-(applause and cheering)-That could be very true.

(with English accent):We're releasing our next album

on spider web.

A spider will comeand spin a web

in your homeand pluck the strings.
