** On ''OK Computer:'' "No Surprises," a calm and emotional song led by a xylophone, is put right after "Climbing Up the Walls," an extremely harsh song based around insanity and paranoia.

** On ''OK Computer:'' "No Surprises," a calm and emotional song led by a xylophone, is put right after "Climbing Up the Walls," an extremely harsh song based around insanity and paranoia. Additionally, the creepy dystopian interlude "Fitter Happier" is followed by "Electioneering", the most straightforward hard rock song on the album.

** The pool of blood in the interior artwork for ''Kid A'' is a reference to the comic ''Shadowplay'' by Creator/AlanMoore, in which Olympic swimming pools full of blood are used as visual shorthand for the number of victims of CIA atrocities; one pool equals 20,000 people dead.

** The ending of the video for "Burn the Witch" is a big, long homage to ''Film/TheWickerMan1973''. It's also animated in the style of ''Camberwick Green''.

** When bootlegs of early live performances of ''Kid A'' songs made their way to the internet, the members of the band were both surprised and pleased when fans at concerts already knew the words to these new songs that had only been played once or twice previous. Colin Greenwood told a [[Creator/TheBBC BBC]] reporter:
-->"We played in Barcelona and the next day the entire performance was up on Napster. Three weeks later when we got to play in UsefulNotes/{{Israel}} the audience knew the words to all the new songs and it was wonderful."
** Radiohead also forced their American label, ''Capitol Records,'' to back down from lawsuit threats against fansites that posted Radiohead lyrics.



* DigitalPiracyIsOkay:
** Their 2000 album, ''Kid A'' was available for streaming from their website before its official release, and their 2007 album ''In Rainbows'' was released for sale on a "pay what you want" system, but they've since indicated that they will not pursue it further.

** Guitarist Ed O'Brien dislikes the band's stance on it. He's the only member of the band involved in the Featured Artists Coalition, an anti-piracy group. However, he also notes that he is tolerant of the "passive" pirates who really only download music to listen to it. He's really mostly against the shadier bunches who try to make money off of artists.

*** There's a different sort used in "Separator," where Thom's vocal track is duplicated and the two tracks play with a slight delay between both.

** The original version of the B-side "Cuttooth" was evidently much longer than the final cut [[MissingEpisode (by how much, nobody knows)]].

* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Thom Yorke. This is ironic, since he doesn't scream sex symbol... But [[StupidSexyFlanders even straight men lust after him.]]
