Fox News Back At It, Brand Radiohead the "Poor Man's Coldplay"

More earth-shattering insight from music's most finger-on-the-pulse minds.

The great musical brains over at Fox News are continuing to piss themselves for attention, stretching out this Radiohead debacle way past its logical end. Basically if you're unfamiliar with the situation (lucky you), a comedian named Kat Timpf appeared on the network's Greg Gutfeld Show earlier this month, discussing the nominations this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. During that appearance, she called Radiohead "just elaborate moaning and whining over ringtone sounds." She also said that the men she dates are "trange, malnourished, and sad," and commented that they always like Radiohead. It was very droll. There was a whole thing. Jonny Greenwood changed his Twitter bio. The end.


Except, not the end, because it got a bunch of press coverage and this is Fox News. Timpf has since appeared on the show again, suggesting that she should go as a Radiohead fan for Halloween, based on her previous description. Host Greg Gutfeld then saw this as his moment to really Weigh In, stating the following, which I am going to block quote because it is so monumental:

You know, Radiohead is a fine band, but they stole everything from Coldplay. Like Radiohead is the poor man's Coldplay.

I'm done here. See some intelligent music debate above, around the 36-minute mark.
