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

* SubvertedKidsShow: The video for "Burn The Witch" openly emulates the cheery, pastoral classic British children's show ''Camberwick Green'' while also heavily drawing from ''Film/TheWickerMan''. [[https://www.theguardian.com/music/2016/may/16/radiohead-copyright-burn-the-witch-video-trumpton The combination was subversive enough, and the emulation strong enough, to earn the band a lawsuit.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RedOniBlueOni: Played with in the case of the Greenwood brothers. Personality wise, Colin is the red, known for being chatty, energetic, and excitable. The shy, soft-spoken, and self-deprecating, Jonny, on the other hand, is the blue. On stage, the roles are flipped. Colin becomes the blue, keeping close to Phil's drum kit to focus on the groove, whereas Jonny becomes the red, and thrashes his guitar dramatically, with his limbs and hair flailing around.
**Also works in terms of comparing the guitar styles of Jonny and Ed. Jonny's punchy, aggressive, and almost percussive guitar style is the red, while Ed's subtle, textured, and ethereal guitar sounds would be classified as blue.

** Their fan club, W.A.S.T.E., is a reference to Creator/ThomasPynchon's ''Literature/TheCryingOfLot49''. It stands for "'''W'''e '''A'''wait '''S'''ilent '''T'''ristero's '''E'''mpire"; Tristero is one of two rival mail companies in what may be an ancient conspiracy, an elaborate hoax played on the novel's narrator by her ex-boyfriend, a hallucination of the novel's narrator, something else entirely, or all of the above (because it's Pynchon and he loves nothing more than a good MindScrew).

* EpicRocking: "Supercollider" is Radiohead's longest completed studio song, clocking in at 7:02.
** Also "These Are My Twisted Words," "Paranoid Android," "The National Anthem," "How to Disappear Completely," and "Daydreaming".
** The original version of the B-side "Cuttooth" was evidently much longer than the final cut [[LostForever (by how much, nobody knows)]].

* BookEnds: ''OK Computer'' might begin and end with a car crash. "The Tourist," which closes the album, contains references to high-speed travel, and the chorus consists of "hey, man/idiot, slow down"; "Airbag," the opener, describes relief at surviving a car crash.
** The music video for "Karma Police" begins and ends with a shot of the empty back seat of a 1976 Chrysler New Yorker.

** "Molasses" surreptitiously slips in mentions of genocide and starving waitresses throughout the otherwise harmless sounding lyrics.

** "True Love Waits" has overtones of grieving as it's presented on ''A Moon Shaped Pool,'' though in previous live performances it came across as a relatively straightforward love song.

* WordSaladLyrics: [[DownplayedTrope Mostly downplayed.]] A better name would be "phrase salad lyrics," since it's not so much the word choice as it is the connection between two unrelated statements that throws the listener for a loop. See "Morning Bell:"
-->Where'd you park the car?
-->Where'd you park the car?
-->Clothes are on the lawn with the furniture
-->And I might as well
** Of course, right after that, it's played straight with the nonsensical phrase "sleepy jack the fire drill."
