--> ''This is about the unspeakable. Literally skull-crushing. I used to work in a mental hospital around the time that Care In The Community started, and we all just knew what was going to happen. And it's one of the scariest things to happen in this country, because a lot of them weren't just harmless... It was hailing violently when we recorded this. It seemed to add to the mood. Some people can't sleep with the curtains open in case they see the eyes they imagine in their heads every night burning through the glass. Lots of people have panic buttons fitted in their bedrooms so they can reach over and set the alarm off without disturbing the intruder. This song is about the cupboard monster.'' ** The {{metal scream}}s at the end just add to the effect.

* During the final reprise freak out of "Paranoid Android", mixed quite low in the background, there of blasts of what sound like White Noise on normal speakers, but on headphones you can hear that it's (presumably) Thom screaming his lungs out and babbling incoherently. * The music video for "No Surprises" is probably not for anyone with a fear of drowning. It depicts Thom Yorke singing "No Surprises" in close-up while wearing a dome over his head like an astronaut. As he sings, the dome begins to fill with water. When it is completely full, ''Thom goes completely limp and motionless.'' '''For almost a full minute.''' Then the dome drains out and Thom appears to be quite distressed (sucking in great lungfuls of air), and also quite relieved, laughing as he lip-syncs the last of the lyrics. [[spoiler: He was never in any actual danger - they {{Over Crank}}ed the film in order to make it appear he was motionless. He actually only had to hold his breath for a few seconds.]] The kicker? The video took ''several takes'' to film - and each time Thom grew more and more stressed out and agitated at how long it was taking. Horribly, eye-wateringly claustrophobic. '''Music/KidA'''

** "Motion Picture Soundtrack" is a big case of MoodWhiplash, pretty much an inversion of LastNoteNightmare. In fact, it's pretty much SweetDreamsFuel in any other context. But in this case, similar to "Treefingers", on ''Kid A'' it pretty much ends up being NothingIsScarier. Especially with the two minutes of silence at the end.

* There's something disturbing about the quiet, traumatized-sounding, [[GratuitousPanning gratuitously panned]] backing vocal in "Pearly*" contrasted against the aggressive 'rawk' lead vocals- it sounds like there's one Thom wailing away onstage and another one right behind you. The fact that the song is about a group of Japanese girls who prostituted themselves to get tickets to a Radiohead concert (much to Thom's horror) just makes it even more unsettling.
