‘Radiohead: Complete’

Meanwhile, Radiohead are currently embroiled in an ongoing feud with right-wing US channel Fox News.

Comedian Kat Timpf appeared on the Greg Gutfeld Show and labelled Radiohead’s music as “just elaborate moaning and whining over ringtone sounds” and described the band’s fanbase as “strange, malnourished and sad”.

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

Following that, Gutfeld himself remarked that “Radiohead is a fine band but they stole everything from Coldplay,” adding: “Like Radiohead is the poor man’s Coldplay.” Coldplay have since responded via Twitter, joking: “Finally somebody had the balls to say it!”.

Now Gutfeld has said that he wants to “ban Radiohead’s music from public places”.

He also later aired a comedy sketch featuring Timpf that compared Radiohead’s music to the irritation of head lice.
