Fox News Reveal Why Radiohead Is ‘Elaborate Whining Over Ring Tones’ For ‘Sad Men’


On Fox News’ The Greg Gutfeld Show on Saturday, co-host Kat Timpf was critical of Radiohead’s music when discussing their nomination for the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class. Alternative Nation transcribed her quote.

Kat Timpf said, “Well, seeing as it’s about fame and not talent, I think that Radiohead is definitely going to get in, and should get in. I don’t even like them, but the kind of guys that I like have to be three things: strange, malnourished, and sad.

Those guys always like Radiohead, so I’ve been having to pretend to like Radiohead for years to get these men, even though the music is just elaborate moaning and whining over ring tone sounds. You know what, if that’s not fame and power that will get me to do that for someone else, then I don’t know what is.”

Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke is hitting the road in December for solo shows.

In September 2014, Yorke released his second solo album ‘Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes’ on BitTorrent, and racked up over a million downloads in six days. Now, just over three years later, he’s preparing to reissue it on CD and vinyl through XL Recordings. That’ll come out on the 8th December with the record also appearing on streaming services after that.

In celebration of the reissue, Yorke has announced a trio of solo shows in Los Angeles, Oakland, and Houston.

He’ll also be bringing producer Nigel Godrich and audiovisual artist Tarik Barri along for the ride.
