Watch Radiohead Cover The Smiths

Here’s a video of Radiohead covering the Smiths’ ‘Headmaster Ritual’ for a 9 November 2007 webcast. Covers of Smiths and Morrissey songs are often hit or miss, but Radiohead’s version is quite good! Thom Yorke’s vocals are surprisingly up to the task, and the guitars are Marr perfect.

As a bonus, here is Radiohead’s cover of the Joy Division/New Order song, ‘Ceremony’ from the same webcast session.


Britpopping since I first heard 'Animal Nitrate' in 1993
