Radiohead labelled “poor man’s Coldplay” by Fox News host

Greg Gutfeld says Thom Yorke and band "stole everything from Coldplay"

Radiohead have been described as a “poor man’s Coldplay” by a Fox News host.

Earlier this month, comedian Kat Timpf appeared on the Greg Gutfeld Show when she gave her take on who will be inducted into next year’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall Of Fame, labelling Radiohead’s music as “just elaborate moaning and whining over ringtone sounds”.

Now Timpf has appeared on the Fox News show again, with host Greg Gutfeld joking that she should go as a Radiohead fan for Halloween after she described the band’s fanbase as “strange, malnourished and sad”. Gutfeld then went on to say: “You know, Radiohead is a fine band but they stole everything from Coldplay… Like Radiohead is the poor man’s Coldplay.”

Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood recently responded to Timpf’s original criticism, changing his Twitter bio to read: “my life in the gush of boasts……….’strange, malnourished and sad’ (fox news – *spits three times*)”.
