Westboro Baptist Church Versus Radiohead

Ladies and Gentlemen, you may well embark on feelings you didn’t know you could have in this article. Strange, uncomfortable feelings that will confuse and nauseate. Effectively, you might end up agreeing with the Westboro Baptist Church.

It seems that members of the WBC have taken it upon themselves to become music critics (as well as infamous critics of homosexuality).

The notorious bible bashers decided to?protest outside a Radiohead gig in Kansas yesterday and they let their mouths run for fun.

The extreme religious group described Thom Yorke & Co as ‘freak monkeys with mediocre tunes’ on their website.

They have a point. They continued:

“God is undoing this nation and effecting all of your lives, with the moth that quietly eats the very fabric of your national garment. Radiohead is just such an event.”

Not as catchy as ‘God Hates Fags’ and indeed, they failed to poke fun at Thom Yorke’s wonky eye. They really have started to go soft on us, clearly.

Radiohead’s producer Nigel Godrich, meanwhile, responded on Twitter, saying the protest and comments were the

“highlight of the tour”

That’d be the tour where Radiohead are really sticking it to the man with their Ticketmaster sold stubs going for upwards of ?70 per punter.
