Radiohead did not invent the minor 5, or the stadium shuffle. They took it from Queen, who took it from The Who, who got it from The Band. It's fair game now.

UPDATE: We wrote about this amazing song in February of 2018. 10 months later it won a Grammy.

It's like someone took a Radiohead song, changed the lyrics, and kept the awesome while adding a really ballsy falsetto and making it sound Country. That person is Brandi Carlile, and that song is The Joke.

Radiohead did not invent the minor 5, or the stadium shuffle. They took it from Queen, who took it from The Who, who got it from The Band. It's fair game now. And seriously this song is amazing. Stop what you are doing and listen to it immediately.
