Celebrate 'Big Bang' experiment with Radiohead's tribute

Hear Thom Yorke's song for the Large Hadron Collider

Radiohead at Victoria Park, East London, Tuesday June 24, 2008. Controversially, the band's set featured few crowd-pleasing favourites. When they did dip into their early back catalogue, for example 'Planet Telex', Thom Yorke described the song as "fucking nonsense". Pic: PA Photos
Marking the success of this morning's (September 10) experiment to recreate the conditions of the Big Bang using a proton accelerator, NME.COM has dug out Radiohead's tribute to the Large Hadron Collider.

Scientists fired protons around the giant 27km long accelerator on the Swiss-French border, hoping to mimic the conditions that occurred at the moment the universe was created.

Thom Yorke has already immortalised the giant physics experiment in song, performing new track 'Super Collider' in its honour, so to mark today's experiment you can watch footage of the band's new tune below.
